Updated on October 30, 2012

Here is an overview of some of the top cordless mouse options on the market today; it should help with your decision making process.

According to a review by CNET (found online at http://reviews.cnet.com/mice/logitech-mx1000-laser-cordless/4505-3148_7-31095326.html), this cordless mouse:

  • Is the latest greatest thing in terms of cutting edge technology applied to the wireless computer mouse
  • Is 20 times more sensitive than a standard LED and so can read the screen more finely and therefore work more effectively than its counterparts
  • Has "phenomenal" battery power
  • Is somewhat large in size, which tends to be its only major drawback

  • Is annoying because it has only one thumb button

Oh, and it has a really cool design.
