Once, I bought a $20 Microsoft USB wireless mouse to use with my laptop. I found it in a drawer the other day. I don’t know why I had ever quit using it. I suppose the battery went dead, because it works great.
Anyway, I was so excited to find it, I kept it for myself and plugged it in my Mac. I’m now hooked. It works so incredibly well. And there is no cord to snag on the back of the desk! Before now, I hadn’t used it on my desktop computer. I had always used it with the laptop while on the couch, or some other less-than-adequate surface for a mouse. Having used it for the past few days at my desk, it is heaven.
I know a wireless mouse may sound like overkill, but it’s so much better. I highly recommend buying one. And the single AA battery that mine uses will last for several months at a time, so that is no factor. Plus, the mouse even works from across the room. Personally, I’m not going back!
