    Does he really want Bluetooth? and whats his budget?

    Last I heard the MX1000 on bluetooth was laggier than the normal wirelss (RF?) equivalent.

    Well, the Logitech DiNovo is nice but pricey. We just had a Dell branded BT keyboard and mouse combo delivered which our FD seems to get on OK with - uses his laptop's onboard BT transceiver; not having much luck finding the product code, except on the US site, which is about as much use to you as a chocolate fireguard...

    Hang on - it's SKU 580-12153, product code 64548. Requires a BT adapter to be already installed/available. It MAY be available separately, but you'd need to phone and ask I suppose.

    Well... If he's looking for wireless in general (maybe doesn't know you get normal wireless?) then the Logitech G7 is the most accurate mouse I've used.

    No lag. (Even the MX1000 had a little, although barely noticable)

    The Logitech Bluetooth's did have lag.
