Some people love nipples, others prefer trackpads, but neither of these laptop input devices is as good as a proper external mouse -- not when it comes to gaming or image editing, or anything for that matter.
Thankfully, there's a solution: the Mogo Mouse X54. This wireless Bluetooth mouse collapses to fit into a vacant ExpressCard/54 slot -- hence the name -- where it automatically recharges. After 30 minutes on charge, it'll run for a good 8-10 hours from a range of up to 10m away.
Better still, the X54 doubles as a wireless remote control. Flick the switch on the rear to activate media mode, and the function of each button changes. The left and right selectors become previous and next track, the scroll pad manages the volume, and the back button becomes mute.
The X54 also comes in a 'Pro' version, which includes a laser light for pointing at stuff in presentations. Neither is particularly comfortable in the hand, but they're infinitely better than a trackpad or laptop nipple. Both versions cost approximately £54.99. Grab one here. -Rory Reid
