Logitech V450 NANO; tiny dedicated USB dongle, fab battery life. Less than $25 on eBay with free shipping. Awesome.

Kennsington also makes a BT mouse with the same profile as shown on page 1 of this thread. I have the trackball version and like it. They also make a presenter mouse version also in BT.
I got mine for less than the $60 Amazon shows but here’s a link for the description:

I use an Apple Magic mouse, connected by internal Bluetooth. I wanted to do this because it really feels like a Mac product then :-)
I also used Better Touch Tool to tweak the mouse actions, giving me right click and multi finger gestures. This doesn't affect the internal touch pad's usability at all, so I'm very happy with it.
I never disconnect before sleeping either as some have suggested. I find that Bluetooth is just 80% reliable anyway, it doesn't always come on after sleep, but a sleep wake cycle is all that's needed to get it going again.

I use the Mella Elephant ($30) mouse with it's own receiver. Haven't had any issues and the dongle is almost flush with the netbook, so I never have to remove it. uses 2 AAAs. 2 DPI settings is useful. Decent battery life

I use this one.... Mouse - Sanwa Supply - - Sanwa Mini Wireless Laser Mouse 1600dpi 2.4GHz Black
The dongle is about as small as they get and sits in the bottom of the mouse when not in use so you don't lose it. I'd say it's about 2/3rds the size of a normal desktop mouse but still big enough to be comfortable. Probably one of the few things I've bought lately that I'm totally happy with, and zero setup required. I've often forgot to turn it off and the battery doesn't seem to mind G/L
