    Red face What kind of mouse, mouse pad & keyboard do you use?

    I found that a mouse can be one of your most usefull tools and investing in a good mouse can mean a world of difference in your overall happiness when it comes to using your computer.

    Equally as important is your mouse pad.

    I have two desktops that both my wife and I actively use.


    on both computers we use the Razer Diamondback.

    I have a USB Logitech Trackman (trackball) attached to my laptop for when it's plugged in. I don't have a mousepad becuase I don't need one.

    I do have a mini mouse for when I'm not at home and have the laptop on a desk, otherwise I play with the circular scrolling on the touchpad that it comes with.

    Re: What kind of mouse & mouse pad do you use?

    On my Ubuntu box, I use a Logitech M3x00 and the laptop keyboard (Toshiba Tecra 8100). The mousepad is a cheap one from Penguin Consulting (www.penguincomputing.com) and has a giant Tux penguin on the Microsoft campus and at the top says "Good evening Mr. Gates, I'll be your server today!".

    On my desktop, I have a Logitech Mx500 with a ZBoard keyboard and a cheap Boston College mousepad. I did just buy a Razer Pro 1600dpi mouse from www.woot.com .

    Edit: The Razer mouse just came. I think I am spoiled now.

    I have a Logitech Marble Mouse, the trackball one. I don't have a mousepad, but I do have a little memory foam handrest I use sometimes.


    I use to hate trackballs, but now I'm addicted to them. Definitely worth getting one if you have wrist pain.

    Just the standard Dell/Logitech one that came with my computer. Wired, mecanical ball inside... about the only "perk" is the scroll wheel, if it can be counted as such. For my mousepad I've found the nicest one I've used on this computer is a free branded one that my ISP was giving away.

    I disagree. I think that the mouse is a nice tool when just getting familiar with a system, but eventually you should switch to the keyboard for 97% of tasks (unless you do a lot of photoshop or CAD stuff, of course). This is why I don't like investing in a good mouse - I want my mouse to be uncomfortable, so that I switch to the keyboard faster. So, I usually just by the cheapest mouse around.
