I have a Bluetooth mouse connected via the internal BT module. I don't like it because it's flaky and seems to only connect where/when it wants to. The issue could be my mouse (Microsoft 5000) or my software (Windows7 Pro and OS X Snow Leopard). It seems to work more reliably in OS X though. If I were buying another mouse, I would probably go for an RF mouse with a tiny USB receiver.

Smile Bluetooth mouse - 03-23-2010, 02:31 PM

i use the logitech nano bluetooth mouse. i love it - now that i have downloaded the setpoint software from logitech it works flawlessly, connecting everytime i turn on my mini10v. i am running win7 home premium or whatever. it is not the best mouse i have ever owned (that would be a microsoft laptop mouse that runs on usb); but not having to plug in a mouse is a big plus.

I just prefer the built-in trackpad...sorry

EDIT: I think by the time you add a BT mouse and maybe a BT keyboard it aint a mini no more

PS: I got BT on mine just to be able to connect to my phone or maybe in the future BT headphones

I have the mogo media mouse with the included BT adapter. I use it for my dell inspiron 1720. It works well and has great distance. i have been thinking of getting a 2.4GHz htpc keayborad with built-in trackpad but I am unsure as to how good they operate.

I don't mind the trackpad. Although my Mini 10v didn't come with bluetooth, but I do have a Mogo Dapter

I've got a dell bluetooth mouse connected tot he internal blue tooth. It's well made and auto connects within a second of being switched on. Brilliant device for £12.

I got the Logitech V450 Nano Mouse. I love it. It works great on any surface and it has never lost connection. You gotta love the nano receiver too...never have to take it out of your mini!
