Excerpt: I decided to buy myself a mouse to use with my laptop as it is just so much easier and quicker than using the mouse pad. I chose this one as it is smaller than a lot of others and fits nicely into the pocket of my laptop case.
Excerpt: Buying my first laptop I decided that i would opt for a mouse aswell because I have never been able to cope with the pad on my sisters laptop. Microsoft is one of the most trusted manufacturers when it comes to all things computer related.
Summary: I recently bought this mouse from Amazon for my son to use on his Laptop. It arrived within a couple of days and he set it up himself no problem at all. We both agree that it does it's job brilliantly. It also has no probs with range as we had it working at 4 metres without a problem.
Summary: let me put it this way, you'll never find any better wireless mouse than this one in the market. it's ust flawless. the battery life is excellent, I used the mouse every single day for at least 1 hour and the battery lasted for more than 3 months!!!
Summary: I always used a roller ball mouse but changed, grudgingly, to the optical mouse when I bought my laptop. I will never go back to using a rollerball or any other mouse now. The optical one is SO easy to use, there are no wires, it works on practically any surface (even your lap!!).
Summary: Unless they've changed it recently, I consider the whole thing to be very durable, even the USB receiver. I've had mine for about 18 months and no complaints at all, very compact and easy to use, the sensor has trouble with some surfaces (as all optical mice do) but a piece of paper under it fixes...
