I bought a mouse and am using it with my laptop. It makes it easier to use, I guess I got used to it with my desktop computer. ......... Do you like to use your laptop with or without a mouse..??:o)

I bought a laptop about a year ago after having a desktop for awhile, and at first I didn't think I would be able to use my laptop without buying a mouse because I didn't like the built-in mouse, but now I prefer it over a regular mouse.

I don't have another mouse for my laptop. I like the one that's built it.

Yes, I always plug in an auxiliary mouse whenever I fire up my laptop. I use both the trackpad and the mouse at any given time. I'm OK with the trackpad but yes, good old mouse is better for some jobs like scrolling, copy-pasting, etc. Although I also use keyboard shortcuts along with both.

I used a mouse with my laptop at first, but when I'm out in a coffee shop or somewhere else, I don't bring the mouse along so I've gotten used to not using it. And now I feel awkward using the mouse with my laptop. Guess it's just a matter of getting used to.

I'm using the touchpad now, just because it's so much more versatile and doesn't require me to be at a place with a hard surface. I do have a mouse that I use when I'm doing digital artwork or photo touch ups, but generally the touch pad gets me by. :)

I also use a "normal' mouse with my laptop. I find it easieer to control as the touchpad on my laptop is super sensitive and will take off on me...lol

I always use external mouse, even I use external keyboard too. So I use my Laptop like I use my Desktop PC, it's very convenient to me.

An extra mouse is normally used for quick pointing. I normally use it at home and for playing games.

I love my touch pad, only because I adjusted the settings to make the mouse move faster than normal. A great invention this touch pad it.
