Hands down, the RadTech BT600 is the best Bluetooth mouse I've ever owned or used. They also have great driver and button support for the Mac. It's also a great mouse for bigger hands. That's why I have one in black and white.

Hey that looks just like a microsoft laser mouse nice rip-off bet microsoft is mad about this one.

But there are several mouse choices.

Logitech makes a awesome mac keyboard and mouse combo right now that is completly wireless and avaliable in bluetooth.

The old and nasty is using a microsoft wireless mouse but the software sucks if your hands get sweaty you get zapped by the mouse from your sweat on the battery's.

Really i enjoy logitech and apple for choices in mouse and keyboard's

Considering that most hockey puck mouse that where made for mac a few years ago where produced for apple by logitech

I purchased a Logitech V270 Bluetooth Wireless Notebook Mouse- Charcoal back in '06, and it still works fine. AA batteries, about 6 months or so life. It's been a good tool for the price (about $30)

I use an apple wired keyboard. The small aluminum one 50 bucks with a Logic tech v220 or a Microsoft mobile mouse 3000. the mouse has a usb plug to the keyboard. I get wire security for my keyboard and a wireless mouse total 70 dollars. beats 130 for full wireless apple and a hi end bluetooth mouse. way more reliable.

the wired one on the left 49 dollars small good looking

I use the old school white Apple wired keyboard and plug a Microsoft 3000 mouse into the key board. Damn if Apple can make futuristic devices like the iPhone and such but they sure as hell can't go build a decent mouse. Wink Imagine if Apple reinvented the mouse. It would be amazing I'm sure.
