The is a provision for using mouse in laptop occupying the usb port.As a primitive computer user some people prefer mouse over the laptop's touch pad that works similar to the mouse but only takes time to be used to.I personally prefer the touchpad due to the fact that it's not always possible to carry mouse because of forgetfulness.What do you prefer to use-a mouse or a touch pad? Thanks, Happy MyLotting

Good question! I like mouse much more, because I am so used to it. Using touchpad takes so much time before I can reach the right location with the pointer. But then again, some experienced people can get way better results with touchpad, than with mouse. It all depends on a person. I personally like to use mouse more.

hi! I prefer the mouse because it is faster and easier. i use the touchpad, only when my mouse is down or my hands are dirty, because I really don't like work with the touchpad!

Hello Janu, I would prefer a mouse. Its simple and straight forward. When a touch pad malfunctions, you have to dismantle the whole thing. When a mouse is not responding you just remove it check it and reconnect it again. A mouse is kinda cozy. You don't have to stay close to the screen for long. You can operate your laptop remotely. Of course when you are doing myLot, there is not much scope for remote operation. But for other general jobs that doesn't involve keyboard, mouse is best. Thanks for starting such an interesting discussion. God bless you

And Thanks for participating in my discussion.Yes,mouse is traditional and those who are used to mouse seldom use touchpad.Though all it depends on the user's tendency,the new generation has become habituated using the touch pad because touch pad is the only option they find from childhood as mouse is rarely used with laptop.Oh,God bless you too.
