I am oging to buy a bluetooth mouse and i looked at the magic mouse but it is too expensive and really low down, so does anyone reccomend a mouse (has to be bluetooth, not wireless) that it comfortable to use and looks nice.

Thanks in advance.

Every one says the Mighty Mouse sucks because of the scroll ball but I've never had any issues with my room mates Magic Mouse or my Mighty Mouse. I recommend checking it out especially if you have a pretty good return policy like Fry's Electronics offer. But for my person #1 recommendation I would have to say Logitech MX Revolution but if your hands are too small for that mouse get the Logitech VX Revolution. A+ product!

Has anyone tried the Logitech M555b? I am seriously thinking about giving Bluetooth one last shot. I currently have the V550 and love it. Looks like the same mouse, but with Bluetooth.

I recently purchased the MS mouse mentioned above and the tracking is just awful on my Macbook Pro (OS 10.6.2). It works smooth as buttah when I go to Windows 7 (bootcamp), but the mouse pointer flickers and jumps when in Mac mode.

I've installed the MS Intellipoint drivers, but it's still just crappy. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise, I can not recommend this mouse for a Mac.

I personally like the Magic Mouse. It's unique surface type opens up a lot of possibilities, especially when you combine it with application like MagicPrefs. It looks good, it's nice to use (you really do get used to it and it's very comfortable, and I have large hands), it's wireless (duh) and best of all the battery life you get some cheap batteries is great.
