Finally it seems they fixed the wifi issue with safari.

Now it seems my apple bluetooth mouse drops out quite a lot.

Batteries showing above 75%.

Hmmmm.

Anyone else?

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Nope - I've the Bluetooth magic Trackpad and it just stays connected and monitors the battery life well, letting my know when my battery is low.

     

    Do you have an Apple Magic Mouse or a third-party Bluetooth mouse. If the latter, it might not be completely compatible with your MBP.

     

    Just a thought...

    Honestly, bluetooth is terrible, and always has been.

    It seems with most bluetooth device, if they get set darn kind of hard, the bluetooth connection drops (I suspect is giggles the batteries too much)

    I have noticed this on apple, and third party hardware.

     

    Also, max 3 bluetooth devices paired.

    And you've all of the updates for 10.8.2? Strange - I've never had Bluetooth problems or issues... I know that there was a problem, early on, with wifi and Bluetooth on the Retina machines but, as far as I know, that has all been 'fixed' with updates... haven't heard of that problem in a long, long time.

     

    I don't know what else to tell you to try - you might want to make an appointment at your local Apple STore and see if they can come up with a fix...
