    Do you use a mouse with your laptop?

    My left click button no longer works on my laptop and I was wondering who out there uses a mouse with their laptop and which ones work best.

    Yes, because I detest the little trackpad that comes with it.

    I don't have it with me and I don't recall the brand, but I use a wireless mouse that has a little usb thing that plugs into the computer; that way I can use it for presentations and not have to be right next to the comptuer.

    I have always used a wireless mouse with my laptop and I prefer Logitech. About the size of my palm and the click is still strong after 1 1/2 years now I use it daily. I have purchased the same one for 2 other laptops as well and those still out-lasted some wired desktop versions.

    Heck yea!

    I can not see how people can even stand trying to do anything with that track pad. I mean sometimes the arrow goes where you want it, but most of the time you go chasing after the arrow so to speak.

    I find that using a mouse is far more productive on a laptop, not to mention less aggravating.

    No, no need.  The pad works great on my Vaio, very accurate and precise with every movement and 'tap'.

    I always use a mouse, because I hate using the touch pad - just can't get used to it for some reason.
    Mine is by Logitech. It works well for me.

    I keep on using mouse rather than touch pad, mouse keeping me comfortably at work.

    Nothing but touch pad for me.  I have a MacBook Pro and the touch pad is huge.  I don't think I could avoid it if I wanted

    No just touch, the gateway touch pad seems to be more accurate than others i've used.
