Bluetooth Mice

Are there any cordless mice that have bluetooth, but do not require a USB stub or basestation/tranceiver?

I don't mine a basestation for charging purposes, but would like to use for that and then just throw the mouse itself in the bag for on-the-go situations.

So far I'm coming up empty.

If your laptop has Bluetooth built in, then you won't need to use the USB Bluetooth adapter that may come with the mouse, as the signals are standard. If not then I think you're pretty much stuck with plugging an antenna in somewhere.

Yeh, does your machine have Bluetooth built in? My MacBook Pro and iMac have Bluetooth built in so I use the wireless Mighty Mouse from Apple.

Yeah, bluetooth built in. I figured you were forced to use the USB adaptors rather than just the mouse solo.
