My new Powerbook is on the way! :cool: I did a search on the forum for the Radtech BT-500 Bluetooth mouse with no results. Has anyone used this mouse? I really would prefer bluetooth over usb, and from what I have read the Apple one clicker is not functional.

Thank you for your help,

Dave

For me that mouse is way too small to use all the time but I guess it's a good match for a powerbook.

A lot of people have the Kensington bluetooth mouse, and the Logitech Mx700, and both seem to work pretty well. Logitech doesn't officially have mac drivers yet though.

I have that mouse and have been satisfied with it. It is small, but thats the point. Otherwise I could use a regular usb mouse.

here's one that looks just like the apple mouse, but has two buttons plus a scroll wheel.

I personally like the Apple BT mouse, but if you're used to the two-button with scroll wheel, I think that dvforge.com's The Mouse BT with Mac designs, two buttons, and a scroll wheel, with bluetooth functionality is a great alternative (linked in another's post above). I've been using it for a few weeks now and I really like it overall, even if it's not flawless. You should be able to use your Radtech mouse if you really want it. OS X tends to be unbelievably good about not needing drivers and such.

'cause when it rains, you know it pours.
