This is the one I use. I don't even play games but I just like it as a mouse haha. It's very comfortable. I had a gift card when I bought it so I figured why not.

I got the bluetooth Mighty Mouse when I bought my MBP about 3 months ago. It's been great so far; I rarely have any issues with distinguishing left-clicks from right-clicks, but I do notice that the scroll wheel "sticks" every now and then, and the left-to-right scrolling seems jagged to me. Overall, it's a great mouse, but I ended up replacing the batteries after only 2 months. My keyboard (Apple bluetooth) uses 3 batteries, and is getting low right now, which would mean my keyboard lasted about 3 months on the batteries.
I highly recommend you get a good set of rechargeable batteries, even if you don't go with the Apple stuff
Your milage may vary

Don't know if they still sell them, but I have a Logitech V270 Bluetooth travel mouse. It's the perfect size and it's got a great feel for a travel mouse. It doesn't burn through batteries either.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I love my Bluetooth Mighty Mouse, I'm not sure why it gets a somewhat negative rep, but I love it, and I have even played games with it and its fine. I may be getting a wired logitec gaming mouse for like 40 bucks off newegg just for the heck of it when I'm at my desk at home. The mighty mouse is not a gaming mouse, however it works just fine if thats all you have.

I use a logitech mx lazer bluetooth mouse. You can use any mouse with your Mac that you could use on a PC.

As for the sticking scroll wheel on the mightymouse. Turn it upside down and rub it HARD against a cloth in your other hand with rubbing alcohol on it. That should clean out the ball area.

One thing stops me from using a MM. I play WoW on my computer alot and I need to hold both mouse butons down at the same time alot for movement. Can't really do that with the MM.

Anything in the Logitech MX series should work well. Personally, I use the MX518 and have the buttons set to do specific tasks. You really can't go too wrong with a multibutton mouse unless it's the Mighty Mouse.
