    Hi all!
    Could you recommend me a Bluetooth mouse for mac, please?
    Last month I used regular Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical, and I see now -- I really need 2 buttons and scroller. I like Apple mouse, and I'll stay it for my 5 years old daughter. But for my work I'm looking for some Bluetooth mouse. I like these:
    - IntelliMouse Explorer for Bluetooth®
    - Wireless IntelliMouse® Explorer
    My question is compatibility Microsoft Bluetooth mouses with Mac. Somebody knows using it together?

    Thanks (and sorry my English)

    I was looking for a good BT mouse for my Mac mini months ago. I own the MS BT IntelliMouse and have used it on my PC for 1.5 years and really like it. I tried it on my Mac mini and found that it did not track very well so I ruled that out.

    From reading posts on this board I was convinced to try the Apple BT mouse. Proponents told me that I would get used to the one-button mouse and lack of scroll wheel. I used the Apple BT mouse for a little over a month. It tracked very well, had great battery life and was comfortable to use. While Apple's OS and software are better suited for one-button operation than Windows software and I did get used to Ctrl-Clicking I never cared for it as much as right-clicking and I cannot live without the scroll wheel. My browing habits more than anything forced me off of the Apple mouse. I use Firefox and love using the mouse gestures plug-in and scrolling up and down web pages.

    I gave up and went back to a spare Logitech 510 MX I have. It's wired but it is still better now that I have right-click and scrolling. Plus I use all the extra buttons for Expose and Dashboard - very nice! I think the next time I get an urge to buy a tech-toy I'll pick up the Logitech MX 900 which is the BT variant of the 510 MX. Does anyone have experience with the MX 900 on the Mac? Does it track well? How's the battery life?
