I am wondering if there is an external bluetooth interface that I can plug into the usb port on my Apple monitor to use for my new wireless magic mouse? My system resides under my desk, which because of its metallic construction provides some issues with wireless connectivity to it. Is there a bluetooth connector device that will plug into my monitor (or something that will sit on my desk) to help eliminate this issue?

Kensington makes a Bluetooth dongle. I am assuming your Apple monitor has USB ports. The specs say this works with USB 2.0 and 1.1 as well.

Bluetooth® USB Adapter 2.0 - K33348 - Kensington

Hope that helps.

Thanks yogi!! Any idea how the system will react to two active bluetooth connections? My Mac Pro has bluetooth inside, but I like the Kensington product you listed. Will I need to disable one to use the other?
