I decded not to bother with a wireless mouse because I could not see the advantage. The disadvantages as for as I can see are that it is not tethered to the computer so it can get lost and that it needs batteries. My very cheap aptical has served me well for the past couple of years.

for games. No problems. Get a pack of rechargeable batteries / a charger and you'll have no worries.

PS you need to remember to put it in the cradle when you have done with it so it keeps the battery's charged

You'll wish you'd bought one years back. The difference is very noticeable, easy to move around with no cable drag and battery's are not a problem if you keep a spare set of rechargeable or buy a mouse with a charging dock..

A word of warning about these particular laser mice. Some are having trouble with them lagging if they are even slightly removed from the mousemat (or whatever surface is used) during use. It takes anything from a fraction of a second to more than a second for the mouse to work out where it is again and start to respond.

This is a common problem, highlighted in the fora of several gaming communities.

I have one and it also has the annoying habit of intermittently teleporting 2 inches to left. :S
