    They very well could be in the near future..you never know. I have he Microsoft Mobile Mouse 6000..w/BTrack. I would love to see something like that with BT capability. : ) Those mice are sweet already, with added BT...awesome! :cool:

    Thanks guys!

    I think I've narrowed it down to the M555B and the V470 from Logitech, and this one:

    http://www.aceofsweden.com/ace/mouse/laser-2-4ghz-wireless/tx18.html

    The TX18 costs about half as much and supports bluetooth 2.0. I have no idea if the Logitech mice also support BT 2.0, or if it even matters... :eek:

    However, it may also be a good size for me :)

    The M555B looks like it may be everything I want in a mouse, but it's also just a little on the small side for my taste. It's smaller than Apple's mighty-mouse and I tend to find that one a bit too small as well... but we'll see :)

    That Razer is way outta my budget and way to outlandish for me, I get scared just looking at it ;)

    I'd say skip on BT and go for a nice RF mouse with a nano receiver. Take a look at the Logitech V450, an excellent no frills mouse.

    I did consider that! The main reason I came down in favour of BT is because in about a month I'll have three computers I'll want to use the mouse with, and I have a tendency to lose small things when I have to move them around... and I'm thinking that that might happen to the RF dongle =P

    I second this. I love my Thinkpad Bluetooth mouse. Solid feel and weight and works perfectly. So far I love it more than any mouse I own(wired and wireless).

    Mhmm, I agree, it would be so awesome.
    I can't help but die a little when I use the mice at Uni, generic Dell optical mice, and find the tracking worse than awful :p

    i agree with MS blutrack + Bluetooth... i have the MS wireless mobile mouse 4000 and its great, small enough but not to small i have average sized hands and it fits perfectly... great tracking it even works on glass, on my lappy keyboard (perfect for plane trips) and even on grass... it does have a dongle but its a nano one and has its own compartment in the bottom of the mouse. whatever you do do not get the MS 5000 bluetooth mouse... biggest pos i have ever had i took it back 5-6 times and still couldnt get one that worked right so then went to Logitech M305 and then to MS WMM 4000 and it is great better than my full sized desktop mouse, it also comes with rubberised grips on the sides and has a decent scroll wheel too.

    hope i helped even though im not talking about BT mice but RF mice are still a great option too.

    cheers

    I've been using the V470 for the last 6 months and absolutely love it. Nice simple clean design and it works very well. The TX18 looks decent as well.
