I am new to this notebook thing I finally broke down and bought me one. And I love it. But I wasn't real comfortable with the mouse situation. I guess because I have used a mouse for so long it was just hrd for to get use the mouse on the notebook.
So, I purchased myself this stow-n-go mouse from Best Buy on sale for $20 bucks it is normally $29 bucks. It was very easy to insall all I had to do was put the tiny cd in my computer follow the instructions to load it in and I was ready to go. It does have like several codes in it for differant computers so it took a few minutes to find mine but once it does its great.
Some of the features are an automatic on/off switch which extends battery life, and once you download the mouse it allows you to make it where you an use the tilt wheel with 4 way scrolling navigation. All you have to do is follow the instructions and download the software for free. It also has a place underneath the moust that the USB plugslids into for easy storage.
My favorite thing about it is that when ever I go to use my notebook I just plug in the USB and its ready nothing else to do. I highly recommend this mouse it was a great investment.
