A real little gem and answer to my dream,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Targus Optical Super Mini Retractable Mouse (Accessory)
If you have a laptop which you use a lot on a portable basis so are not deskbound and on which you find the installed "finger pad" or Joystick mouse is either too sensitive or on long usage gets cumbersome then this is the answer to your prayers.
It is small (though unlike portable phone keypads etc loses nothing in dexterity); it is based on a simple ergonomic design which by its shape fits almost like an egg shaped billiard ball or squash ball between your fingers when being used; the cable is retractable so you can lengthen to your speciifc need and it is USB port based, plus with optical eye avoids the problems of old "rubber ball" mice. Finally, the item worked straight away on plugging into my XP powered laptop.
An answer to my prayers and I say this having worked through about five so called "portable mice" with my laptops over the last ten odd years which either "burnt out" after several months usage or just fell apart.
And finally all at a knockdown bargain price from Amazon - what more could you ask for!
