    I have been researching for a nice little wireless (bluetooth or RF) mouse for The One.

    If the mouse uses RF, the receiver needs to me small, that it can be put in to the One and left there:

    It also should have atleast one button in the side, because i'm used having Back-button binded there.

    Possible candidates so far:

    Microsoft Notebook Mouse 5000 Bluetooth and has the button, pricey?.
    Logitech V450 Nano Small RF receiver, no button.
    Logitech VX Nano Small RF receiver, no button, too expensive.

    Anyone know other possible candidates?

    From the 3 above, i think Microsoft's mouse is the best candidate, but i kinda like the V450 Nano in red, plus it's a bit cheaper.

    I am not sure how bluetooth mouse works. Is it needed that laptop supports bluetooth first?

    If yes, then MS mouse might not be good for Aspire One.

    i am using the vx nano and i like it alot.

    There are back and forward buttons on it, its just not on the side like a regular mouse. Having to use the index finger to access them needs abit of adjusting tho.

    It should be enough to plug in a bluetooth dongle, which i already have.

    I have some random Logitech Wireless Desktop set which has an similar mouse, which has forward and back buttons on the scroll. I don't like it, i'd rather have the button one the side.

    My local Best Buy had the V450 wireless (not the nano). Bought it, plugged in the USB and it worked immediately. No downloads, no setting up.

    Its RF, but the reciever is really small, which came in consideration because I didnt want the reciever to stick out like a usb drive.

    Plug and play works, but to use the functional buttonss (like the quick search) i think you need setpoint (the logitech software for it)

    I use the VX Nano and I'd highly recommend it. It is now available for $49.99 regular price at the larger stores (BB or FS) in Canada. I got mine for about $35 with the Staples price guarantee.

    The wireless signal is strong and the laser tracking is one of the best I've tried. I use all types of Logitechs and Microsofts at work and I've used the MS Laser 6000 notebook mouse also. The VX's tracking is precise and very flexible. I can seriously use the mouse one my jeans of my thigh or my leather couch cushsion and it tracks fine. The same can't be said of the MS models I've tried.

    whose brave enough for the solder job..

    tbh tho, the aa1 has 3 usbs, if youre only ever going to use 2 of them, then the reciever is small enough not to cause any trouble .
