Hi everyone :blink:

I currently have the Microsoft Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse 6000 and I hate it. It's small and doesn't fit in my hand, it's not very responsive, the click wheel is weird, the list goes on and on.

Thus, I'm in the market for a new wireless mouse for my desktop. I would greatly appreciate anyone's recommendations.

A couple of things...
- I'm not going to be using it for any hardcore gaming (though I do play a game of CounterStrike every now and then).
- The mouse should work well in windows XP and linux
- Not too expensive

Thanks,
Matt :whistling:

http://www.logitech....,CONTENTID=9340 i use this guy...and i love it...it's got just enough buttons to keep me happy...i've had to replace the batteries once in the year i've had it...plus...due to a slipup at office depot....i got it for 12 bucks instead of 45...which aint too shabby...

you can configure most of the buttons to do as you wish (i close programs and refresh pages)...plus it has a side scroll deal so you can scroll right to left and up and down...it's got the media buttons as well which are nice if you listen to music alot (volume controlls, next/previous buttons etc..)...plus it's big enough to feel like an actual mouse

Anything logitech, honestly. They're reasonably priced, high quality, and they have great support.
