My husband and I are on vacation, and of course we brought our laptops! Who can survive without them anymore? We both decided to buy a cordless travel mouse as well. As we were headed for the checkout, we realized that we had forgotten something important. We needed a mouse pad. The table we work on at the beach house is glass, and we didn't want to risk scratching it.
So I ran to the back of Walmart, and tried to find a small mouse pad that would fit easily in my computer case for travel. My favorite small mouse pad is actually an ergonomic one, that has the wrist pad for cushioning and support. However, I purchased that one at Target, and I was in Walmart. So after looking over what was available, the only choices were a really deluxe large mouse pad, or a very "bare necessities" one. I didn't want a large one for traveling, so I chose the basic mouse pad, until I can get back to Target.
It is about as basic as they get. It is black, and made of 50% recycled rubber, and it works with all mice. It has a non-slip base. It is also anti-microbial, which I assume means that it inhibits the growth of bacteria and other microbes. Since it was only $3.21, I would say it was a very good deal. It will work in a pinch, until I can get my small ergonomic one. So if you're on a budget, or you just need a basic mouse pad, I think you'll be quite pleased with this one.
