The Microsoft Wireless Notebook Presenter Mouse 8000 is the one I use on my laptop and will use with my Mini 9 when it arrives! Bluetooth mouse and it also comes with a BT dongle for non-BT laptops.

Useful for doing powerpoint presentations too

While it isn't a BT mouse, I went for The Logitech VX Nano because the dongle is so small and I'm a complete Logitech fanboy.

This thing looks like it was made to go with the Mini 9.

That being said, I wouldn't mind burying the Nano receiver inside somewhere and will pursue that option when I can.

If you dont have the BT Module installed i think that that is just an extension of a standard MBD usb connector.
you might be able to get a cable that connect to the heder then carfully remove the mettal shiled from the USB dongle....
solder the wires to the dongle. test correct operation then seal the assembly in some heat shrink tube and connect the heatshrink to the case with some double stick foam tape.

I already have the BT module, but as I understand it, the unused Mini PCIe port has USB lines on it, although I would need to tap +5 volts somewhere on the motherboard.

Once those connections are in place it's a pretty easy hop to simply strip down a small hub and install THAT to support some internal USB stuff.
I have a background in electronics so the soldering doesn't phase me a bit. I just don't know where to properly tap +5v and ground for USB power.
The rest is hardware, wire wrapping wire and indeed double-sided tape!

Interesting stuff.

I'm using this Dell Bluetooth mouse. I actually got it with my 1720 but now they're advertising it as a Mini accessory.

Is a nice bit of gear and works well.

I opted out of bt and instead got 2gb of ram. Because of this I went with the VX450 Nano and I love it. It sticks out maybe 2mm from the case and hasn't caused me a prob yet. Pricey though, for a mouse I will inevitably dropkick into orbit.
