What is the best bluetooth mouse, and webcam for a linux laptop?

I just ordered a laptop and was thinking about putting a bluetooth pcimia card in it and getting a bluetooth mouse for a clean look. I know I have had problems with getting some mice to work in the past and just was wondering which ones work and how good. Also I have never used a webcam but I have already kinda went all out on this laptop so I was going to order a webcam. I understand that linux and webcams were extremely hard to setup. Tell me what works for you. Thank you for your opions. BTW price doesn't matter.

you should take a look in the HCL after finding a mouse you like. Check to make sure there arent any serious problems when using it with linux. There may even be some suggestions on how to get it working. Do the same for your PCIMIA card and webcam.
