I have used the Wii Remote on my Mac and have recently seen the Remote pointer from LG:

Does anyone know whether the pointer remote from LG can be made to work with the Mac or whether there is another one that will.

The Wii Remote does the job, but I would like to compare other pointing solutions to see how they fare.

Most likely not!!!

However if you are looking for a presentation mouse there are several windows ones that do work in mac os x no matter the version just make sure you spend more then 9.99 for one because the 9.99 ones the Big lot's and ross sell are junk and are not mac compatible

I used the Wii Remote in the past, but was never happy with it.
I then switched to Logitech MX Air, which worked almost perfectly.
Only caveat was a bit too short range when using it more than a few meters away from the Mac.
Unfortunately, Logitech stopped selling it, likely because it was very expensive "for a mouse".
But it can still be found sometimes on eBay.
