besides magic mouse which mouse is best and most compatible with macbook pro at a reasonable price?

I was looking at the logitech V470, which is about $34
Anybody use this mouse?

review is mixed when used with MBP

Since MBP have only 2 USB port, I don't want to lose one port only for the mouse.

Thanks

I've got the MicroSoft Intellimouse and it's a pita. Works fine once it's connected, but if I turn the computer off and reboot it's a crapshoot on whether it will connect or not. I've lost track on how many times I've had to grab a usb mouse and use it to reconnect the bluetooth mouse. Never had any issues with the Apple mouse connecting, but it's stupid roller ball was a pain to keep clean. So definitely stay away from the Microsoft mouse.

I haven't had much luck with any Bluetooth mouse yet :( The best one I used was the V470 and it's collecting dust now someplace. I have been real impressed with the revolution series though, but they are not Bluetooth.

The Magic Mouse works fine. I just don't like the feel or functionality. I'd rather have a trackpad (now I have one :)). The V470 worked, like the three mice I tried before it, but it had a slight lag. 90% of people wouldn't notice it, but I move pretty fast while editing and it grew annoying.
