    I've had enough of mighty mice, I've gone through 3 in the past two years because the scroll button quits working and taking it apart to clean it or find out whats wrong is a massive pain in the ass.

    Anyone here use an alternative that has bluetooth or can recommend anything?

    every other BT mouse i've tried fucking sucked as far as tracking went. lots of choppy tracking, or flat out didn't work.

    What else do you plug into your laptop via USB? The only other thing I plug in is maybe a flash drive from time to time. My external hard drives are all Firewire.
