    Hi guys! - First time poster to this site - i don't remember how i got linked here -but i was like - woa - he he - this is a huge forum.... compaired to some of the forums i'm on. (By the way - cassetti is my nickname on other forums - all of which are car audio related FYI)

    I recently purchased a Dell inspiron 5100 custom laptop - thanks to some financial help (college student discount) - i was able to get quite a nice one - for what i paid that is.

    Anyway - so i now have a dillemma - i've been using the notebook for over a month now - and have grown tired of my original wired hp force feedback mouse i got off ebay (to see if it was as cool as the logitech i-feel mouse that i got before - which for the record - get the logitech i-feel mouse if you want a cool optical one - also good for people like my grandpa whos just learning the computer - it helps him 'feel' where links are and that sort of stuff)

    Anyway - this sucker is wired and has a ball - not even optical!

    Well i got some money to burn (my mom uses the laptop also - so shes fed up with the mouse as well!) - so i'm looking for the best mouse.

    I need a wireless mouse without a need for a recharge base (no wireless mice with ac plugs!). But i want one that is obviously optical.

    Battery life is not an issue - But the biggest issue - is erginomics.

    I have a medium sized hand (not small - not huge) - but yet - right now - i am using an IBM optical wired mouse i use on my personal custom computer - the one with the blue scroll wheel.

    Anyway - the thing that annoys me - is that when i use the optical mouse on the couch or armrest of my couch - the bottom of my palm - near my wrist - drags against the fabric - causing me to lean my hand further up the mouse - which annoys me.

    Anyone know of any really nice comfortable mice that i would like - and not need a wrist rest like what i have up in my room (you know - those gel filled wrist rests.)

    Thanks alot guys!

    (and i did have a microsoft intellemouse explorer optical before - wired of course - but i ended up getting realllllly t'd at my computer because i had a huge project i typed up - and my computer crashed - paper was due 15 hours later (it was 8 at night - and computer refused to come back on) - ended up snapping the mouse cable in half bcuz i was so ticked ~ not the smartest idea for a $60 mouse at the time!)

    Logitech Cordless Duo MX. Or any Logitech actually, they make nothing but good stuff.

    problem is - the logitec duo - if i'm not mistaken - is that nice $80 one right - the one with the black buttons on gray mouse......

    its got one tiny problem - it has a recharger base - and this is for a laptop,

    Logitech makes cordless mice without a recharger base as well. Check here to see all the models.
