Well, I don't know if it was for price concerns or some other reason (battery life, all the mice are blue for some stupid reason) but you could save yourself a USB port and take advantage of the bluetooth you paid for with a bluetooth keyboard and mouse. Apple's are great if you can stand the single mouse button and no scroll wheel (I can't). Or, for $29, you can get a wired apple keyboard that includes a two-port usb hub, basically letting you plug in keyboard and mouse w/o losing a USB port. Personally, I prefer the older "Pro" keyboards but I think you'd have to grab one off ebay.
Can anyone tell me why bluetooth mice MUST be blue? Are people really that stupid? And where I say "people" I mean "product designers".
