Greetings.

I'm thinking about buying a Logitech wireless mouse for my MacBook Pro. The mouse comes with a USB wireless card. Will I need to use this or will the wireless/bluetooth card in the MacBook pick up the mouse by itself?

Cheers,

John

    I use this bluetooth model. http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/mice_pointers/mice/devices/3287&cl=US,EN With the usb mouse you use a small usb dongle. It's an extra part I'd probably lose.

    No matter how i reset the setting download LCC re-install and even changed the battery..still the same result!!!!!

    I don't understand your problem. Is it that you can't see the arrow or what? You say the button and all work fine so I am stumped by your question. I have problems with my mouse being recognized by the MBP but I just turn off mouse, restart laptop then turn on mouse and it comes back up. If I ever put my MBP to sleep I shut the mouse off first and wait until it says mouse disconnected or whatever it says..I can't recall. Then I put the MBP to sleep. Once I wake it up turn mouse back on and voila..works!! Maybe try pushing the little "Connect" button on the bottom of the mouse that might help. I have never tried that but just a suggestion.

    Sorry if this is all confusing.
