    Get some rechargable batteries, and a charger for them... you'll go through batteries like crazy! Dont have to worry much about a keyboard if you decide to get it too.

    Ive got some rechargeables already, their pretty good for gameboy/ digital cameras etc, i hope they work just as well on the mouse.

    I didnt think they would use much battery.

    Also, its just for laptop use, i cant use the touchpad well on photoshop

    For gaming I would only use the Logitech MX700, with no other choice, I'd go wired. For non-gaming it doesn't seem too bad. I've used it a little, and it does seem useable without too much problem. Even so, I personally would go with wired.

    Ack, get the Logitech MX700

    I'm on my third wired Intellimouse Explorer

    God only knows how much they could fuck up a wireless version.

    Probably the best mouse I have ever used. Its only fault is it will eat 2 batteries every 2-3 months.

    I said, i tried the MX500/700, its not as comfortable :o


    I have friends with intellimice, they treat them like shit and they still work flawlessly.

    You must be doing something very wrong
