Do you use an external or internal mouse?

I personally just use the internal mouse that comes with the laptop but other people use a wireless mouse with their desktops or sometimes even a wired one..with a laptop or desktop. Some don't even use a mouse but have a trackball instead. I love just using a laptop with a built in mouse..don't have to worry about peripherals, but sometimes it does act up for no apparent reason and I have to reboot. When I was apartment shopping last week I saw a snazzy wireless one the staff had. I wouldn't mind a cool looking mouse like that.What kind of mouse do you like?

I never liked the built in touchpad, even with my laptop I prefer to use a wireless mouse. My Logitech mouse is really good, the trackball was a mess, you had to clean the ball all the time or it acted weird. I think that trackballs are not even more produced.

I knew certain people who favored them. They were never my cup of tea.

@snowy22315 Many years ago all mice had a ball under it, they were not precise and had problems.

normal simple Bluetooth mouse, extra smooth. What I have right now is from Dell and it's not smooth at all. before that, I had a Logitech one, which was pretty good. Anyways will be getting a new keyboard and mouse, gamer edition.

Oh yes, I am sure if you are into gaming and have a gaming laptop you would want to have the best mice to go along with it.

@Prabhatsingh Some of those gaming PC's are quite pricy like 1,000 dollars or more.

@snowy22315 I tried using battery charged but we need to keep changing those batteries and in the midst of our work it suddenly stopped working I am fine with what I have.

@allknowing I see..it seems like your problem really is devices with low batteries. My battery does not run down much at all, but I generally have the laptop plugged in anyway.

I really can't remember the last time I used a mouse either wired or wireless. It may have been in a hotel lobby somewhere.

I prefer to use the external mouse no matter it is wireless or with a wire. It works better for me.

It is good to use what we feel comfortable with.

I rarely use the touchpad. It's harder to control and make me do my work slower. I am using the wireless mouse now.

I'm totally blind, so I lock my mouse. If I'm using one of my touch screen laptops, I'll use the touch screen. If not, I use keyboard commands that act as mouse commands. The arrow keys are my best friend.

Yes, I have that talking keyboard option. I don't need it, but it is wonderful for those who can make use of it.

I don't generally have a problem just using the internal laptop mouse.

I had a chance to try the wireless mouse, but I wasn’t thrilled, I would probably have to get used to it.

It is a learning curve with those. Using your finger is so much easier.

I'm the same way, I like using my finger as the mouse on my mousepad on the laptop, it works for me.

Why make something more difficult that is easy to do? Nothing extra to worry about.
