I'm afraid its more likely that the Windows drivers wouldn't contain one for a wireless mouse to be able to detect it,

but then again, I'm not completly sure since it must still use the same method in terms of the receiver picking it up inside the USB port to get what the mouse is doing and turning it into the electrical signals, yet i'd have a normal mouse and keyboard handy just incase

I hope this helps

this one is $110

or if not can you recomend a good 7500rpm hdd

thanks

I think that you would be best off just adding an additional 7500rpm HDD to your system and slave the other as you say. You wanted to know of any deals or of a good HD, well you can check out one heck of a deal at http://www.us.dealsopolis.com/browse...16&deal_type=2
This site has a great deal on a SEAGATE 160GB HD, please keep in mind that this is only a place that shows the deals and can direct you to the place selling them at a very good price.
