    I'll be buying a 13" MacBook Pro soon and I need to decide which mouse to buy. My main use will be for lots of reading.

    Could wireless "portable" mice be considered not that comfortable for reading?

    I have considered the following options:

    -Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000

    -Microsoft 6BA-00022 Wireless Mobile Mouse 3000 (Green)
    http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-6BA...5?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1278625695&sr=1-5

    -Logitech V220
    http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Cord...2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1278625844&sr=1-2

    -Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500
    http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Wir...1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1278625908&sr=1-1

    - Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000
    http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Wir...1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1278625964&sr=1-1

    What do you think? Are there better options? Which would be your choices for "reading" mice?

    And for a good all-around comfortable MBP mouse?

    EDIT: One more thing...... I'm left handed ;-)

    Thanks

    Why do you need a mouse for reading documents?

    Reason

    I have the habit of constantly highlighting sentences, key words and looking them up, lots of scrolling too. So something that's at least comfortable would be nice.

    Perhaps consider a used Logitech VX Revolution. The ergonomics and scroll wheel on that mouse are top notch :)

    Sorry, forgot to mention, I'm left handed, so I need something at least ambidextrous... :D

    So far my main choice is: -Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 , this seems like a good choice, any issues with the mouse itself disconnecting?

    I haven't used it a lot, but when I tried it I didn't find it too comfortable.

    I find that the trackpad is so accurate and smooth that I prefer it over a mouse for reading and browsing, unless I am attached to my HDTV or playing games.

    I bought a magic mouse for my Macbook Pro 13". I am receiving the notebook tomorrow, however the mouse already has a good feel to the hand when I tried it out and also seems high quality.

    i highly suggest the magic mouse. i too thought it was uncomfortable at first but after a couple days it became a dream to work with. I wouldn't pair any other mouse with my mac.

    Eventually I might also install Windows 7, how does the Magic Mouse perform there?
