Mini Mouse (LOL)?

by jainagray / May 4, 2009 2:23 AM PDT

Hi,

I thought I would get a wireless mouse for the used laptop I just bought, an HP NC6000. I checked around on the Internet and found a HP wireless mouse, EY018AA#ABA. Cute little thing! Anyway, does anyone have experience with this particular mouse? Failing that, how does a mini mouse stack up against a full size mouse? I have very small hands, so am thinking the mini might be OK. I want to be as mobile as possible but still want to have a mouse to use when I get to use the
laptop on a flat surface.

Regards,

Jaina

Nano Mouse
by jainagray / May 4, 2009 2:47 AM PDT

Hi,

Looks like a very nice mouse, but a bit pricey for my budget at about $45.00. The HP is under $20. I'm trying to do this whole laptop thing on a bit of a shoestring. Starving writer and all that :-). Like a character in Dickens' novel, Bartleby the Scrivener, I get paid by the word...

Regards,

Jaina

Thought it was pricey but later confided he really liked making this choice.

The HP model is fine. Look around for a V320 or V220 in stores and see if you like that. http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=910-000153-R&cat=MOU

I have a V320 here and it's the same size but no nano receiver and AAA batteries vs. AA. Not that it matters but I prefer AA all around the house.

Internet connection to download required software

"Internet connection to download required software"

That's quite a strange statement. All the models I noted work fine in Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7 and flavors of Linux.

You have to be on the receiving end of the call when Logitech drivers cause issues. There's a free lesson here.

The meaning of your Confucius-like replies are lost on me. We don't all have the wisdom of your admittedly vast experience. Please spell it out for this poor dullard. : )

You recommended the v450 nano.
I saw it for a cheaper price.
The seller has 100% positive feedback.

Where is the concern?

The concern is simple as pie.

The site writes the drivers are required and in fact are never required.

Help others avoid this issue.

Thanks for the cheap link.

Mouse Driver
by Renegade Knight / May 5, 2009 7:17 AM PDT

I've never needed driver for any moust (except for the DOS days). However I have needed a driver to get some features working (extra buttons) on them.

Like you I have that Logitech Nano. Love the reciever. Now they are coming out wiht the colors...may have to buy one of those.

For the OP Logitech does have a 20.00 little brother that works great and is comfortable. You can pick it up at WalMart or your local equivilent.
