Default best laptop mouse for browsing bc?

I just bought a

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/pr...ONTENTID=12140

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/pr...wf,w=750,h=450


I will see how it is. 40 bucks was a bit pricey for just a mouse but I hope it works better than my wired optical msft intellimouse.


It sounds like I can program it to search bc, I highlight a term, then hit the search button and I need to find a way to open a new tab with seach results.



Anyone else have one or used a VX?

Back when I needed a trackball.. I paid a chunk for a logitech, never regretted it yet.

They have some great stuff.

If you're gonna spend that kind of money, why not look at getting a blue tooth mouse? you won't get as many features for that price, but you also won't need any adaptors if your laptop is blue tooth capable.

Looks like the mx1000 i think it is. I have been using logitech mice for a good 3 years now, love their products. Still using my original MX500, but that thing looks nice. Real nice. Where did you find it for 40 bucks, I see it listed as 80?
