    Looking for a new mouse for my laptop and have come down to 3 different mice but I haven't used either of them before :hs: All are around the same price. I don't have built in bluetooth so i'll still have to use a dongle (which is on the way) for the first one.

    The last Microsoft branded mouse I purchased was so bad that I swore off Microsoft mice forever.
    Yeah, back in the day Microsoft made some good hardware.
    But lately....

    Logitech is definitely a better brand. But I have heard some recent complaints about them too.

    I looked at that nano but its twice the price of the V220 :-/

    The bluetooth dongle i ordered is quite small, not quite the smallest but it was damn cheap:

    I had my old Intellimouse explorer for 5 or 6 years :-D I have a Microsoft Wireless Laser 5000 for use at home which is a little over a year old and seems pretty damn good. Have heard good things about the Logitech lot though..

    Something occured to me last night. Is there a delay whilst the mouse has to connect to bluetooth? Will it connect automatically?
