Default Got a new Mouse

The ol' Microsoft Wireless Explorer 2.0 was acting up, my right click became intermittent, to not working within the last few days. The wireless keyboard is still working pretty well, and I love the tilt/smooth scroll wheel on it so i'm keeping that part of the package for now.

But i picked up a Logitech MX Revolution. Rechargeable, and a nifty smooth OR clicky main scroll wheel. I have it set to manual mode right now, where if i push it down it'll engage/disengage the ratchets on the click. But, t'll even click for different programs, and be smooth for others if you want..

And it looks like it could hurt someone.

This one docks into a charger instead of the battery pack thing. The dock plugs into the wall, and there'* just a small thumb drive sized wireless adapter.

I guess this is the newest version of my parents ol' MX700, more for all around use, not hardcore gaming like the G7. I don't play games as much now, so this one suits my use a little better.

The Pro mice for Apples are decent Andrew, once i get used to just clicking with my hand they seem pretty comfy as well.

100 bucks for just a mouse seems like a waste to me
