I bought this handy mouse for my laptop a year or two ago. I didn't really have any particular preferences when mouse shopping - I didn't really care about buttons, colour, sensors, etc. Price was really the key for me, and I picked this up for around a fiver.
The mouse itself is black with silver at the sides. It's very sleek and professional looking, and it looks cool on my desk! It has two buttons (left and right) which click away satisfyingly, and there is a scrolling wheel inbetween. This wheel allows you to scroll through documents or webpages without having to click on the bar at the side of the screen. This may not sound essential - but once you've used a mouse with a scrolling wheel, you'll never look back!
This is not a wireless mouse, so it connects to my laptop via the USB port at the back - although it also comes with a PS2 adaptor.
The mouse also has an optical sensor, which is indicated by a red light at the bottom. This means it is much more accurate and easy to use - I can't believe I used to have a mouse with one of those big rubber balls in the bottom! I use my laptop a lot and it's really easy to navigate through documents and websites thanks to the sensor.
Overall, I am very happy with this mouse. It is simple and comfortable to hold - even for long periods - and it is very easy to use. It allows me to use my laptop quite effortlesly and I can point, click, highlight, etc with ease.
If you can get his mouse as cheaply as I did, I would highly recommend it.
The mouse comes with a five year warranty and it measures 5.9cm x 11cm x 3.8cm. It is compatible with Microsoft Windows 95, 98/ME/2000/XP
