Hi Tim:

I haven't used it extensively but I have an IntelliScanner Mini from here:

The biggest selling point for me on this unit is the size -- it could
literally fit on a keyring.  It works in 2 modes: batch, where you scan
codes unplugged and it stores codes in onboard memory; and tethered, where
scans are immediately sent to the front most application (or one of the
applications that ships with the unit).

It's been a while since I last used it, but I just installed the latest
dashboard software on OSX 10.4.11, and ran it with Revolution 3.  Scans are
immediately transferred to an open field, along with a return character.
