    Can anyone recommend the mouse of their choice? Not for gaming, but for work. I just can't seem to find a good one since my local mall only has those cheap knock-offs. What is THE mouse for IM?

    Please no pics of Jerry. :D

    One thing I have learned about mice, at least for me is that wireless mice brake really easy. So I have went back to wire mice from HP and they are really comfortable.

    I only use wireless mice as I like my workspace to be as uncluttered as possible. I find Logitech to be the best. Long battery life, well built and the most comfortable for me.

    I have a regular Microsoft mouse, used a load of different ones over the years, but this one was pretty cheap and the best by far. Don't let the price tag say which is best!

    I hate wireless and dealing with batteries. I'm cheap and bought four MS Comfort Optical mice for my four computers. I do like the Logitech wireless however.

    I have used this mouse for the past 4 years, they work awesome and are comfortable.

    Here's a link below.

    I use the thumb buttons for copy/paste as I constantly organize files. Alot better then CRT+V and CRT+C all the time ;)

    I highly recommend, at least it hasn't let me down yet

    I have been using Logitech wireless M510 for years. You can program keys to do repetitive tasks and it's got some weight to it, which I like.

    Get one with a matt surface, makes it easier to hold and also doesn't leave marks that you'd have to clean from dust, etc.

    I use Razer DeathAdder, yes it's a gaming mouse but this is the best fu!@ing mouse in the world and I've never even had to clean it, the precision is just imba :)

    Microsoft 5000 wireless is all I use. Thumb button is backspace and right side button is magnify. Started with these years ago and now I can't live without my magnify button. Needs a set of AAs about once every 3-4 months. I replace the mice about once every two years was the wheels get slippery. Much better than the Logitech's I've had in the past.

    If you have joint pain on the clicking finger then get a Wacom tablet. I have an Intuos4 that I just love for PSD and when the arthritis flares up ;)

    Razer DeathAdder Is honestly the best mouse out there in the world!!!

    Hands down, promise you, it's so cumfy to use, and sharp as a tack.

    I used to hate wireless mice after first dealing with a battery powered Logitech one back in the days. I'm still no fan of Logitech, but I'm very happy with my wireless Targus.

    A mouse that had a forward and back button is very useful when browsing the web
