    but that's only a BT dongle to GIVE your computer BT... I bought one like that for my other HTPC in the living room so I can connect my BT stuff like keyboard mouse and earphones... oh and phone

    Correct me if I am wrong but I think some bluetooth devices (mice including) use their own specific bluetooth protocol version making it hard and sometimes impossible to pair to it without a USB dongle (If that's not the case consider me educated to the matters bluetooth :D). That's why I wanted to get some suggestions on bluetooth mice that work for certain without a USB dongle. Plus I needed personal experience and satisfaction input by you guys :rolleyes:

    nope, I have never ever needed a USB BT dongle for my mice... I have had a TON of BT mice from MS to Logitech to no name brands and they have always worked flawless with my BT enabled devices... only time you will need a USB BT dongle is because your PC/laptop/device ISN'T BT enabled... trust me just buy a cheapy Chinese BT mouse from eBay and you will be fine...

    I use the Microsoft Arc mouse with my Surface. Feels full size but folds flat enough to make travel a breeze.

    Not sure if you're still looking, but I bought this Gigabyte mouse, and really like it. It has the additional forward/backward buttons that I require, has a quick scaling feature that some might have use for, size is just right for me. Also, it comes with a very nice carrying case for travel.

    yeh, I was thinking to myself that even if a mouse were to come with a USB dongle, it's Bt, not RF, you can still connect...that's what Bt does! :)

    I use the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 and love it. I use it on two systems right now, as it has three BT connection memory slots, or you can assign any or all to the unifying receiver. It is small but ergonomic and I actually use it all day long as my primary mouse as well as travel.
