Hiya, recently purchased a macbook, and sometimes feel like I really miss a mouse. But, after hearing various horror-stories about the Mighty Mouse, I have been on the lookout for another mouse with the following demands:

Matching style to white macbook (wanna keep it simple)
Bluetooth-connection (i don't wanna lug USB dongles, or nothing around)
Reasonable resolution, meaning I can use it for casual gaming, etc.

So far, the only mouse I have found which fits my demands is the Razer Pro Click Mobile.

But, before jumping the gun I would like to know if anyone has any experiences with the mouse or any other mouse which would fit my demands.

Thx in advance for any replies

Razer mice are fine and well built. However, I don't think that Razer are really reliable regarding drivers for the Mac platform. The driver for the Pro|Click mouse has last been modified on the 26th March 2007... besides that, my own opinion about the mouse your interested in is that it's too small for being actually comfy to use.

Take a look at the Logitech V470.

No Drivers Required!

I am a proud owner of the Razer Diamondback Plasma Edition, it as been with me through thick and thin. My friend accidentally tripped on the cord one time and literally ripped the usb cable out of the front of the mouse -- With a little soldering and some patience, I was able to put it right back to working condition. It is hands-down the best mouse I have ever owned. I would definitely give any Razer mouse a try, they rock. I use it with my macbook pro, and Nines is correct, they have been known to drop/not update drivers for Mac. However, the Pro click mobile does not require drivers! (According to their website)

Taken from the RazerZone website:
"No Drivers Required
With no need for any driver installation, getting started with the Razer Pro|Click Mobile is simply a breeze.

I too have been looking for a good wireless mouse, preferably bluetooth, that has high DPI, because lets be frank; after you use a mouse like the Diamondback with amazing precision, you cannot just use any old mouse and not get frustrated. Some of our university's mice are still ball tracking, I refuse to use them -- pull out the Macbook Pro and use the trackpad instead.

I have read a number of reviews over this particular mouse and am extremely interested in it as well. I read that it has a very tactile feel, the 1200dpi makes it track quite nicely, bluetooth connection with 'Adaptive Frequency Hopping', a pulsating Razer Logo (can be turned off by holding all 3 buttons for 5 seconds or so), for both right handed and left handed users, on/off switch, and a travel pouch. I really want to get my hands on one in person, but the only places I have found them available were online :( .

Hope this helps!

Just throwing this out there; Microsoft also has a few Bluetooth mice here.

You have some good choices for Bluetooth mice now. The Razer one looks cool, very simple though (looks like there's no extra buttons other than the usual left-right-wheel combo).
