Excerpt: When I purchased my Dell laptop computer, I knew that I did not want to use the pointer that is installed on the computer. I have tried using this mechanism without much success. When I was talking to the sales representative, I told her I would need a mouse and she suggested this one. I have never used a wireless mouse before. This one is great. All I had to do was install the batteries and it was good to go. It is a classic black. So far, I have had no issues with it.
