    I'm using the new MacBook with a Magic Mouse and I've noticed youtube videos not loading at all and download speeds of 100kbs. When I disconnected the Bluetooth it went up to 20mb/s. is this a problem with the retina macbook?

    No its a problem with bluetooth and wifi. Connect via 5ghz and the problem won't exist anymore.

    Thanks however not sure my router supports 5ghz I will have to check. If not I will have to use a different wireless mouse that connects via USB.
    Do you know any good mouse that allow mac features like smooth scrolling?

    I have no experience with any other mice. Only the Magic Mouse. I suggest going to a 5ghz router if you can though. You will be able to achieve a much faster connection.
