PRICE AND PRODUCT
In search of a new laptop case, the cheapest one I found for my needs was a Tech Air Z0110, which came with this sweet little mouse an added extra. For £15 for a laptop case and a mouse compared to the other £30+ cases on the market without anything it was a no brainer, it was worth the risk. Argos is selling similar cases with a mouse for prices around £15-£25.
SIZE AND DESIGN
This is a perfectly petite, silver and black, optical mouse, connected with an integrated, wired USB cable. The small, smooth, sleek design is perfectly portable and stunning to hold and use, I would say this would fit comfortably in an average adults palm, with the dimensions being only width of 5.5cm, Depth of 9.7cm and the height being only 3.4cm. This mouse being very lightweight, at only 20g, makes it perfect for travelling with and easy to use, it is very responsive and has a movement resolution at 800 dpi.
The way this mouse is designed, it is perfect for right handed or left handed use, it is a simple mouse with the right click and left click button, with a scrolling wheel in the centre, which you can also click down for extra scrolling motion.
The installation is easy, just plug in and use, this works on most operating systems and versions of operating systems including Apple Mac OS, Microsoft Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000, Vista, XP and even windows 7.
I would highly recommend this mouse, especially if you can get it as a gift with a laptop case, which makes it worth it. Being someone with small hands this works perfectly and much more comfortably for me, but my partner finds this a little small for his manly hands. So it would depend on your preferences and hand span.
If you are looking for a gaming mouse this is very basic and probably not what you are looking for.
I would rate this product a 5/5.
