We've selected some of the top computer mouse picks.
Notebook Pick: Logitech VX Nano Cordless Laser Mouse
The Logitech VX Nano Cordless Laser Mouse is a great mouse choice for notebooks. Notebook USB receivers are often flimsy, easily broken and protrude far beyond the laptop, making them even more vulnerable. The VX Nano's USB receiver is tiny, fitting snugly in the USB port with just a little nubbin to grab for removal. You can leave it in your laptop and forget about it-no more worries about losing or breaking your USB receiver. Combined with Logitech's typical good performance and the added accuracy of a laser mouse, the VX Nano's features speak for themselves.
PC Pick: Logitech MX Revolution
Logitech's MX Revolution is the ideal wireless laser mouse for your PC. Sporting a comfort grip designed to keep your thumb in an ergonomically sound natural position and a pleasant grip finish, the MX Revolution is a pleasure to use. Designed with a thumb wheel to instantly switch between applications and the MicroGear precision scroll wheel to navigate long documents easily, the MX Revolution provides great support for modern computer use.
Gaming Pick: Logitech G7 Laser Cordless Mouse
It's no coincidence that Logitech rules the top mouse picks, and the Logitech G7 Laser Cordless Mouse provides the Logitech performance you'd expect with superior gaming utilities. The top-choice gaming mouse, the G7 provides in-game sensitivity switching, giving you the ability to quickly switch between three sensitivity levels to cover all your gaming needs. The G7 also includes two quick-swap rechargeable batteries, so you can always have a charged battery ready if your mouse dies in the middle of a game. The 2000 dpi laser engine provides unsurpassed response times, and the G7's DryGrip technology keeps your hands dry even in the heat of battle.
Budget Pick: Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse
The Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse is a solid mouse for a reasonable price. This optical mouse gives you the convenience of a wireless unit to avoid desktop clutter and entanglements, combined with a long battery life that heavy-duty users love. The sleek design and smooth scroll-wheel action combined with a unique tilt wheel that enables you to scroll through documents horizontally makes this mouse a solid design choice with reasonable performance. If you don't want to spend the money for a wireless Logitech mouse with all the frills, the Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse is a fine choice.
Novelty Pick: Soap - The Mid-Air Mouse
Soap gets honorable mention for a neat idea and possibly the weirdest mouse ever. Soap is based on normal mouse hardware but is a midair unit with an optical sensor device inside a fabric shell. The optical sensor moves independently from the fabric shell and relies on the user to apply pressure to move the optical sensor. If you're looking for a wacky mouse to amuse your friends, Soap fits the bill.
