Default Bluetooth mouse

I recently picked up a netbook (asus 1005ha) and was thinking about picking up a bluetooth mouse for it. I have seen some good and bad reviews about bluetooth mice and was wondering if there are people around here that have used bluetooth devices and can give me some feedback? Is it worth getting a bluetooth mouse or are they unreliable?

I use the Logitech v470 with my laptop and it works pretty well.

Theres a few seconds when it has to redetect the mouse after booting up or sleeping, but other than that I've been pretty impressed with its performance. The shape is good as well is comfortable after hours of use.
If your planning on using it for gaming, I would say go with a USB mouse since there is a noticeable amount of input lag compared to USB, but for just general use its fine.

Thanks for the input, no gaming to be had here on this little netbook..., well besides torchlight right now... no FPS or anything... I have looked at the vx nano from logitech, nice little dongle that only sticks out 8 mm. But the price is hefty! Too rich for this little puter.... Will have to shop around and find something that fits the budget, there are some really slick mice for laptops out there... just have to find a good one that won't cost more than my little asus eee did!
