Well I just picked up the Bluetooth mouse for a total of about $90 at Best Buy (including tax.) This is a great mouse and I recomend it to anyone. Of course it will only work with Windows XP.

$90?!?!?!!?!!! :o :o
What's so special about this mouse? For $90, I expect it to have some super powers like making drinks for me while I sit at the computer. :wink:

I find Logitech mice to NOT fit my hand comfortably. Microsoft makes the most comfortable mice in my opinion.

Logitech does make some OK mice.

Yeah, to each computer user his own. I'm very happy with my Logitech cordless optical mouse. My only complaint is that it needs fresh batteries every 3-4 weeks. I'm thinking about getting some Ni-MH rechargable batteries for it.

i must agree.
i didn't intend to spend any money on mice, but got an optical MS mouse for $20 - it was a great bargain! (prices are steep here, eh?)
but the feel of the buttons wasn't right - net very sensitive. after having become used to my Logitech 3-button mouse.
so replaced it with the Logitec optical mouse for $34 :o :x
much much better!
even though the wheel doesn't move as smoothly, the buttons are way better.

the new Logitech MX mice look real nice but are VERY expensive (here at least) - the MX500 goes for about 100 bucks, the MX700 for $150 ?

I really like the MX700, but its around $70-$80 bucks in the USA. The one feature I like on it is the rechargeable batteries it uses and how it can be charged on the base/receiver when your not using your mouse. But I plan to upgrade to Ni-MH batteries for my cordless optical mouse, so it'll be pretty similar to the MX700, but without all the fancy buttons.
