Microsoft Wireless Notebook Presenter 8000 versus Logitech M

by iltcm! / November 28, 2009 3:32 AM PST

I'm considering one of these devices to use with my Mac. The scroll ball on the Mighty Mouse (aka Apple Mouse) that came with it is slowly dying, especially when I scroll down (slowly). I've considered these two, and both look good.

From personal experience, which would work better? I have seen better, but I explicitly want Bluetooth to save USB ports (I currently only have one port free and that's part of a hub already).

How's the battery life on these? Sensitivity? Compatibility with OS X 10.6.2? Wireless range?

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
