When I received my laptop as a present, what was also included in the box it arrived in, was the "Trust Xpertclick Optical USB Mini Mouse". For me this was actually very handy, as I didn't have a mouse with me here at uni, and I had just been using the touchpad on my other laptop. This is ok, however given I spend many hours on programmes such as Photoshop and Illustrator, I really did need a mouse as you just can't get the same level of precision with a touchpad. It also makes things easier, although it's down to personal choice whether you buy one for your laptop or not. In terms of design, the mouse has a left and right button, as well as a scroll ball in the middle. It is black and silver in design, and is a "mini mouse", (although it doesn't take the "Mickey" by having ears on top!). As you can imagine from the title, it just means that it's quite small. I'm at odds with this element really, as for me it's perfect for transportation and having on my desk without taking up a lot of room. However the downside, is if you are a person with large hands then you may find this mouse a little ridiculous if you were to use it with your PC, as it's only about half the size of my hand, and my hands aren't exactly massive! I realized upon further inspection that we actually had the exact same mouse on our school computers (back in the day!), so perhaps they are aimed for children, or for people who perhaps don't require much use of the mouse, again if you're using it with the laptop so it's there simply as an extra option. As the cord is fairly short, it may not be suitable for a desktop PC as I know on our PC it's connected to the back of the tower so wouldn't reach, but when using it with my laptop this is fine. Unlike your average computer mouse, this mouse doesn't have a mouseball underneath. The advantages of this, is it glides much smoother and of course doesn't require cleaning out periodically. I have also found that it is perfectly fine to use this mouse without a mouse board, which again frees up space on my desk and is also great as I find they tend to get a bit grubby over time anyway. It may be a small mouse, but it is deceptively smooth. When you use this mouse, it automatically flashes red very brightly from it's underneath. I'm not quite sure why it does this, although it's handy if your in the dark and accidentally drop the mouse! Price wise, this mouse retails from as little as £1.20 on Amazon, which is an absolute bargain in my opinion. Granted it's not a full size mouse and it is more suited to laptop use, however for me it works out brilliantly. I would say it is also very well made, despite being lightweight, at only 100g box weight. It also has grooves either side to allow you to comfortably grip the mouse, which is useful especially as it is smaller than a standard mouse. So would I recommend this mouse? On the whole, yes. It's perhaps not one I would choose for my PC as I prefer a standard size mouse, however there isn't a terrible difference in size, it's just this mouse is more suited to laptop use and transporting in a laptop bag. I've been using this mouse for about a year and have experienced no problems with it, and it requires no installation so I really don't have any qualms with it.
