Those who have used laptops - did you ever find it irritating to navigate with the touch-pad navigation given at the lower part of the keyboard?
I had been using laptops given to me to work at home by the company I work in. Lately, I even bought myself a Dell Inspiron. I must tell you - I love my laptop, but the touchpad was really becoming a nuisance.
The two main problems I faced due to the laptop touchpad:
These were the two main reasons that I thought of getting myself an external mouse. (Another reason was that at office, my mouse had gone faulty and it was a long process to get it replaced).
I got myself one - LX5 Logitech Optical Cordless Mouse. It is a cheap one, without any frills. I have seen better mouses but this one served my purpose.
It does act strange sometimes but I am way better of than using the touch pad. This mouse comes with a interface that needs to be connected to a USB port, and also the mouse itself requires two 'AA' batteries.
I was wondering - have you made a similar choice and used a external mouse for your laptop?
PS: No. This is not a paid review. Logitech or any of its affiliates have not paid me for writing this post. It just goes along with the other posts about things I have bought ( and feel like showing off), and that is the sole reason I write this post.
