I just picked up the Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse 3000 and I rather like it. Although I cannot seem to figure out exactly what makes it a notebook mouse over any other mouse. Maybe it is a little smaller than the other ones, which I like. Seems as if most of the Microsoft Mice are too big and feel weird in my hand.
Easy enough to operate. Especially since I had it up and running in a few minutes without ever even taking instructions out of the package. [Although the battery was a little hard to find in the mouse but I found it.]
Smooth operation and compact. I was asked why I wanted a mouse with my laptop. Well the biggest reason is I hated using both hands to run the touch pad. Plus the touch pad is too sensitive and causes an auto scrollbar with the slightest touch. This does not happen with the mouse. And they say it is a high definition optical mouse better precision. All in all I think it was worth the $25 I gave to Wal-Mart for it. I really like the little receiver that snaps into the mouse. Doing this turns off the mouse and saves the battery. I will have to see if I can get one for work then that darned mouse tail won’t bother me any more.
