Replacement Bluetooth Mouse Options For Mac

Apple's latest Bluetooth mouse incarnation is impressive - and a joy to use. The same Multi-Touch technology introduced on the iPhone is used in the "Magic Mouse". It’s the world’s first Multi-Touch mouse. Click anywhere, scroll in any direction, and swipe through images on its smooth, seamless mouse surface. It works wirelessly using Bluetooth, so you don’t have to worry about cables or adapters cluttering your workspace - you just have to deal with an occasional battery replacement.

Apple Bluetooth Magic Mouse
Apple really outdid themselves in their latest mouse design. Lacking any discrete buttons or scroll-wheel, you might think this mouse would be hard to learn to operate. Instead it's the most intuitive pointing experience you'll ever have!
With Multi-Touch Surface, the gesture controls to swipe, pan and flick thru Mac OSX aware applications like iPhoto, Cover-Flow, etc makes this 'Magic Mouse' a worthy successor to the earlier Mighty Mouse indeed. It's touch sensitive surface and laser (rather than optical) tracking is astounding. And the silver aluminum & white casing compliments many recent and older Macintosh computer models.
NOTE: The MagicMouse REQUIRES OSX Leopard 10.5.8 and higher! If you're still running OSX 10.4 Tiger look to other replacement Apple mice instead.

3rd-Party Bluetooth Optical Mice

Kensington SlimBlade - BT Wireless
- There is a growing number of 3rd-Party Cross-Platform Bluetooth Mice from companies like Microsoft, Logitech, Targus, MacAlly and others are now available. It was a slow start, but now there's a lot of traditional 2-Button / Scroll-Wheel options available.

There are other kinds of 'Wireless' RF radio mice that don't use Bluetooth but use other 2.4Ghz RF frequencies. They require a proprietary USB 'dongle' type transmitter. These imply using up Yet-Another USB port on your Macintosh and the USB transmitters are specific to the brand of mouse it comes with. Taking advantage of a Mac's built-in Bluetooth is usually wiser if your Mac desktop or laptop already has a Bluetooth receiver built-in.

However some people experience interference with Bluetooth devices, so in some environments, a Mac compatible RF mouse might perform more reliably. Especially check out Logitech's line of wireless accessories for Mac which can provide MULTI-DEVICE (i.e. both wireless Mac keyboard AND mouse support) from a SINGLE RF USB dongle.
