    Personally, I'm not crazy about the AppleMouse. Is anyone using a 3rd party mouse that works with the Macbook BT, so it doesn't require a separate dongle?

    Yep, you can just use any old Bluetooth mouse and don't worry about plugging the dongle in. Macs will natively work with all BT devices, including mice and keyboards.

    Hate Apple's mouse!

    I use a wireless mouse via USB doggle as the BT mice seem to no work as well for me. I have tried several BT mice and none work as well as the USB doggle type for me.

    I vote for the Apple Magic Mouse, it works well.

    Stay away from Logitech since they all use dongles. I haven't looked at MS ,but check out their wireless mice. They may be dongle-less.

    Watch out for USB 3.0 and Bluetooth mice

    We'll known interference of BT from usb3.0 devices and BT. For that reason I tend to use USB dongle mice.
