Bluetooth mice are hard to find

After looking at pretty much every bluetooth mouse on the market I've finally settled on the V270 from Logitech. Mostly because it was only $30 after rebate from CompUSA but it's a no-frills mouse that seems to work pretty well. I really wanted a laser bluetooth mouse but there doesn't seem to be any of those on the market that are designed to be used with a laptop. Logitech has one but it's a full sized and has a recharging base so it wouldn't work well on the go.

I actually gave up looking for a bluetooth mouse and got the MS Notebook Laser mouse 6000 but the scroll wheel button was hard to use and didn't really fit in my hand very well. I was thinking I could just integrate the extra reciever dongle internally in my laptop but then I found out that the only way to turn off the mouse is by clipping the reciever into the buttom of the mouse, there was no seperate on/off switch.

This is a much better solution, it has a functional scroll wheel button and a seperate on off switch plus I don't have to try and cram another reciever into my laptop. I just wish they would make more bluetooth mice.
