I was just thinking this. Ive been using wireless laptop mice for my laptop for 6 months and sure its great not having to drag the cord around or it pulling your mouse down the desk. But its alot more work than a simple laptop mouse with say a retractable pull out cord. You have to worry about the batteries for one, and your mouse all of a sudden becomes 2 parts - the mouse itself and the USB receiver. Then you have to worry about interference and whether the mouse glides well enough on certain table tops when commuting with the laptop. I just got a mini laptop mouse with a charger and it came with it and AAA NiMH batteries, but im contemplating if its even worth the money, and maybe just go back to the standard wired mouse.

For laptop, a wired mouse, just untangle and plug in, simple as that. Wireless mouse, you have to plug in the USB dongle, turn the mouse on, put mouse pad under neath etc.

I had a compaq pressario 3000 that I bought a infra red opti mouse for.
It was perfect because the wife could watch the tv and I had the lappy on a small table in front of me with the mouse rolling about on the arm rest of my chair.
Forget about mouse pads just don't try to use it on a glass topped table.

Sheer bliss. :)
