Having a decent mouse with which to scroll around your screen may not actually be worth its weight in gold, but it certainly makes things easier than struggling with one of those nasty laptop nipples or a less than responsive touchscreen.

The Gold Bullion Mouse looks a million dollars, but is somewhat less heavy and has a telltale scrollwheel recessed into its top. A wireless device with a USB infrared receiver, it works with both PCs and Macs, but its 104mm length and rather angular design makes us worry for our digits.

Those who fancy a bit of bling can pick it up for £25 inc VAT from iwoot.com
