For a long time, I kept one of those tiny “walnut” mice in my laptop bag to conserve space. I also liked the idea of having that extra “travel” mouse so I couldn’t scamper to catch a plane and forget it.
The walnut mouse presented 3 new problems, though. First, it was super tiny and actually caused some pain in my hand after extended use. What a sissy! Second, it had a completely different action than my full-size office mouse. Third, it hooked to my laptop with a USB cable. Anytime I can eliminate a cable from the tangle in my travel bag, I get excited. I like to arrive at a customer meeting, pop open my laptop, and just get ‘r done. Futzing around with a bunch of cables before and after is distracting.
I went through several travel mice before discovering this one. Take my word for it, just buy it. It’s sized just right: not quite walnut, but certainly not as big as your current desk mouse. I actually keep one in my bag and another at my desk. Same mouse, no matter where I am.
My favorite qualities:
You can see it here at Amazon… can you believe 226 other people felt compelled to review a mouse?
