Excerpt: Recently, my husband and I decided to purchase a wireless mouse for my laptop. Although my computer has a touchpad, it’s very sensitive and doesn’t always work well. We opted for the Microsoft wireless mouse, which is available for around $25 at Wal-Mart.
Excerpt: Your notebook is wireless, so why not have a wireless mouse? We are taking a look at Microsofts latest solution, which promises to offer a comfortable, and precise experience. Does it deliver?
Pros: Wireless!, 6 months battery life, Small, but comfortable for short periods of time, Incredibly precise, Linux & Mac friendly, Priced right
Cons: Had to connect to Windows Update to install driver, Driver not included with mouse?, USB receiver, when placed in mouse, sticks out
Excerpt: I have been using the Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse 3000 for almost a year now. I bought it on sale at the London Drugs chain store for Canadian $49, tax included. I haven’t looked back ever since.
Summary: Yes, this is a good mouse now the oil filled pads have been replaced (they leaked) with solid sides. The projecting sensor/dongle from the usb port doesn't cause a problem if placed out of the way! Mouse works well.
Summary: The perfect size for using with a netbook/small laptop; this is a small mouse but not a tiny one, so it sits in your hand very nicely. The ONLY downside with it, and the reason for 4* instead of 5*, is that the dongle is now a little on the clumsy side. More modern mice now come with a little micro USB dongle, which barely extrudes from the side of your machine.
