Finding the perfect companion for your laptop can be difficult if you don't know what you need. Consider the four factors below and you will have a good idea.
Wireless or wired?
The first thing you should consider is whether you want wireless capability or wired reliability. A cordless mouse gives you the ability to move around freely and use it anywhere within the wireless range. However, if you prefer a mouse that works when plugged in without needing to worry about batteries then a corded mouse is the way to go.
Based on Technoshack sales and product reviews throughout 2014, most people have opted for a wireless mouse when purchasing for a laptop.
Big or small?
Computer mouses designed for laptops are typically small in design as most people want to be able to pick up their stuff and move around freely. If a small, portable laptop mouse is what you're after then you should consider the M187 Wireless Mini Mouse from Logitech. You can take the Mini Mouse wherever you take your laptop—thanks to its pocket-ready, extra-small design.
With the release of Windows 8, touch devices are becoming hugely popular as they allow people to use a wide variety of gesture controls in order to control their computer. So, the question you need to ask yourself here is whether you could benefit from touch controls. If you've recently upgraded to Windows 8 then I would suggest going for the T620 Touch mouse from Logitech. This mouse features a full touch surface for maximum productivity and instinctive touch navigation.
However, if you've not got Windows 8 or simply prefer the use of a click mouse then I would have to point you in the direction of the 3500 Microsoft Mouse series. These mice are hugely popular on Technoshack as they come in a wide variety of different colours and themes to suit your individual personality.
Now, this is the important part. If you're going to be using your new laptop mouse on a couch or in your car or on any surface other than a desk then you need to make sure it has the capability to do so. Microsoft released BlueTrack technology to do just this. BlueTrack technology combines the power of optical with the precision of laser for remarkable tracking on virtually any surface. The 3500 series from Microsoft that I previously mentioned also boasts this feature.
If you're looking for a mouse that you can use on glass then you need to go one step further. DarkField technology allows to track virtually anywhere—even on a glass desk.You can turn the world into your mouse pad. Two great mice that feature this technology are the Performance and Anywhere MX mice from Logitech.
