I tend to use a usb mouse, I might often boot from live usb, and 
frequently use a separate data usb stck. but it is pretty easy to use 
a bluetooth mouse, if I had one...

It is a thin laptop, and I can see that it might be quite difficult to 
find economic places  around an almost non existent edge. I suppose I 
have gotten used to the chunky eeepc 900, with three usb slots, (but 
no bluetooth).
