      Thanks for a really helpful and well researched article - I know what to buy my grandson for Christmas now! I did not know it was possible to get a mouse for left handed people, I will have to tell my brother! Now if you could only create a hub on how to speed up the operator, I might have a chance when I take on my grandson!
