Bluetooth Mice

Any using a blutetooth mouse with their laptops?
i have a sony laptop but the thing is the usb port is on the right side and eveytime i use my mouse i keep knocking on the reciever. my laptop has bluetooth intergrated on so i'm looking for a mouse to go with it.
Any of you have any recommendations?
so far i have found is the microsoft bluetooth mouse and a logitech mouse that uses a mini/smallest receiver.

That MS one sucks, unless you have really small hands. I have a Logitech, almost like the one you posted, and it's pretty good (even on a mac).

i just need a mouse that doesn't use a receiver or a receiver mini like the logitech. but both of these don't really have that good look for me to wanna buy. maybe wait a little while longer then maybe logi might have better ones with bluetooth.

I bought this one wuufer. I think it's great. The scroll wheel clicks to the left and right for additional buttons. It's a small mouse, so it really depends on the size you prefer but it works well for me. It also has an on/off switch on the back, takes 2 AA batteries, and comes in white w/silver trim. Matches my MBP.

I use an Apple Mighty Mouse, but that might look a little funny with your sony. Its also 70 bucks I think, but it matches my macbook perfect and works awesome...

i got the MS bluetooth one like above for now. couldn't stand the receiver sticking out. when i first got it i couldn't get used to it because of the emptiness between my palm and the mouse but now getting used to it so might as well use this for now until a better one comes out.

thanks for the inputs guys.

i have a logitech and the wheel can spin with variable speed. the only thing that i dont like is that the wheel can hurt to the finger because its set kinda high and the wheel is really hard. the size is okay although i wish it was a little bigger.

The mighty mouse has a cool trackball, some people say its fragile but ive had mine a long time now and it still works perfect. It also has buttons on the side of the mouse, which i have programed to bring up dashboard, but you can use them for anything like expose or spaces, pretty much an application you want.

I really got it because it looked right and fits my hand good...

Thing sucks, you need to plug in an adapter to make it bluetooth. Totally defeats the purpose.
