Take a moment from your myLotting and look down at your mouse. Are you using a mouse pad? What sort is it? Is it bright and colourful? Does it have pictures or characters on it? I confess to only having an old painting board, turned upside down. It has scribbles and writing all over it, and is actually quite grubby looking! What are you using?

That's handy. Does that mean no cable as well? I get a little annoyed with my mouse at times.

there is a cable but it doent cause any problem, also nowadays you get a mouse with a very small cable so that you can attach it to your laptop and use, it can be used on any computer, also it is available at a very reasonable price

Im using a laptop but I still prefer using a mouse. It makes me move faster. I have two mose pads. The first one I got for free when I bought the laptop. The design is in a beach with coconut trees on the left, and blue skies. The second one I bought to match with my optical mouse. The shape is unusual, its color blue with electric design. :)

That sounds like a cool mouse pad! I don't know how well I'd manage without the mouse either, so I'think I'm happy with my mouse and pad!

I don't have a mouse pad now. Just my mouse on my desk top. I'm sure that's not the best for the mouse, but I find that a mousepad clutters up the space. In the past I've just used some free foam mousepads that they give out at conferences and the like. I'm hoping to get some optical wireless mouse with a ball so I don't have to move my wrist so much. Getting a bit of strain with my current wired simple mouse. But recently got a wrist rest so that's helping a bit!

Mouse pads do take up room, especially if you haven't got much to start with. I've used the freebie ones as well. A wrist rest sounds like a good idea, mine gets a bit tired at times!

No external mouse would be nice. That would probably be the mouse pad my son would choose, green is his favourite colour!
