Hi Sinc,

I have the Apple wireless (BT) mouse & keyboard.

Initially I had some rather odd issues (loss of pairing, etc), however the recent Bluetooth firmware update seems to have corrected this.

Battery life for both keyboard & mouse is amazing. Ive been using them for about 2 months with no battery replacement so far.

Cheers,
Darren

Sinc, I use the Logitech wireless optical mouse with my iBook, and I started using it until I realized that I did not have to set anything up....just use it. I also like the feel of this mouse in my hand, but that is a personal preference.

I use the Microsoft BT mouse. It works pretty well but everytime I have to replace the batteries, it is a 5 minute ordeal to get it to reconnect. I use NiMH batteries and have to replace them every week. I use the mouse a lot though. All day at work and at home too. I wish it had an off switch like the Apple does.

Sinc, no it does not. I have used 2 rechargeable AAs and only had to recharge them twice in 20 months.

Sinc,

I've got a microsoft wireless multimedia kayboard and mouse, and they both work perfectly, I've had to replace the batteries once in 6 months, and I only paid $71 for both of them.

I'm using Apple wireless keyboard. It's wicked. Typing feels good, response is good, and thus far no bluetooth issues.

My mouse is currently wired (Logitech MX500). Apparently a bluetooth variant of this mouse will be available soon ( I think it is stateside, but not here in the great white north). I 'll look into the BT version when it is available.

logitech's mx mice are fantastic. for the laptop though it'd be best to get the mx900 mouse as it's bluetooth, but you can get the keyboard/mouse (rf) combo for cheaper. i know for a fact that the mx700 rules, but havent used the keyboard, i think it costs something around 110$ at canadacomputers.com

the mx900 looks like a fantastic mouse but i dont like the fact that it still requires a cable for the hub. Id rather just buy the dlink USB dongle and use that with this mouse but that would make batteries costly since I dont have the dock to charge with. Does anyone know of a good TWOBUTTON bluetooth mouse that either comes with a usb WIRELESS dongle or that I can use with the dlink one sold on apples site

using logitech cordless duo -- fringe benefits include the nice volume control on the keyboard, and the delete key works correctly (!)...mouse is nice

i agree that a usb dongle is better, it's kind of annoying having a cable to the wireless hub.

Sinc, when my son was little and was aware of Santa, I said that Santa did not bring toys that required batteries. That was something I would consider getting him, depending upon what he asked for. Santa brought loads of stuffed animals, Duplo/Lego, etc. He actually asked Santa for a wolf the first time he sat on Santa's knee when he was 3. I shall never know why he asked for this thing, other than the fact that we had an Old English Sheepdog and I told him that this dog herded sheep and protected them from wolves. Anyway, Santa was a bit shocked and was not sure what to say.


Yesterday, my son asked for a new Logitech Super Treo set of keyboard, cordless optical mouse and minicam. :(

Thanks Sinc, for asking the question.
Thanks to all the responders as well ;)

My wife wants me to decide which mouse I want for my Al PB. Isn't Christmas fun?

Bluetooth sounds the best for the PB. I guess the choice is between the MS and Logitech?

I've seen the MS mouse at Future Shop. Any suggestions who carries the Logitech in GTA?

Sinc, I believe you need at least 1000 posts to be considered a "great mind" here in ehMacLand. Between 2000-3000 you are considered "most wise"; 3000-4000 a philosopher; 4000-5000 a sage; 5000+ posts just plain crazy.

Dr. G - I thought post counts didn't matter here. We're all cool here at ehMac, just some are more "vocal" then others. :confused:

I'll stick with post count not counting for now ;) Quality Over Quantity.

I do believe that the good Dr. was attempting to make a "funny" in reference to my "great minds think alike" comment, Chealion.

At least that is the way that I took it. Post numbers as you state, do not make much difference to me, other than perhaps giving me some idea how active a person has been as member of ehMac.

Cheers
