What's a good mouse for a laptop?

#1DavidZ2844Posted 2/23/2014 7:13:02 PM
So my laptop's touchpad is really bad (Lenovo Y510p), but there is some space under the keyboard and right of the touchpad for a mouse. What laptop mouse do you guys recommend? I want something comfortable, ergonomic, and suitable enough for some gaming. I won't be playing hardcore stuff like MOBA games, just mainly single player stuff and maybe SC2 and Orange box, so I won't need insane dpi/performance. Also a low price would be nice. Any recommendations?

How is this? Are these kinds of mice usually acceptable?

Any Logitec or Microsoft mouse is enough, make sure its corded though if you hate buying batteries

I don't recommend a wireless mouse at all, personally.

The mouse of choice for most people is the Logitech G400S.

You can spend $400 on a console and $400 on a cheap PC, or you can spend $800 to build your own and have the best of both worlds.

I'd suggest to go with Logitech :) The cheap ones are in the range of 15-20$ and they work great... also a very long battery life!

Having to deal with the cord all the time is more annoying IMO. At least you only have to deal with changing the batteries once every few weeks/months,
