My mouse has given up the ghost. Knew it was and kept putting off getting a new one, now I have to and I'm really skint. Can't stand using the touchpad though. :x :cry:

I know how you feel. I really can't use the touchpad on my laptop. Can anyone? :?

I recently got a super little USB mouse that's only 3 inches by 1.5 inches and has a retractable cable. It's tiny, but works a treat. And it only cost £6. :D

Looks good Tony. I prefer a cordless mouse but will get one of those if the cost is too high.

Tina, OUCH! :( Really sorry about the pain you're in and all you're having to go through. I totally get the aversion to the epidurals, but it's got to be worth it if it helps the pain.

Thanks for the link, Tony.

Happy to help! :)

I must say that I was a bit surprised at just how small it was when it arrived, but it works a treat and I have quite large hands.

I don't like them, but I can use them. I much prefer the trackpoint on mine, though. For some strange reason, though, no one else who's handling my laptop does. Well, tough luck, I've got the trackpad disabled so it won't get in the way.
If you don't know what a trackpoint is (alternatively named nipple mouse and [censored] mouse), see below:

I've got the tiny mouse for use with this netbook.

I found a pretty reasonable normal mouse (NOT wifi, though) from Play.com very cheap (a fiver with free deliv) for my work PC.
