    I use one of those fancy unifing wireless mice+keyboard things.

    Sure beats using a touchpad. and tiny keyboard.

    Cool Re: Who Uses a Mouse with their Laptop?

    Don't leave home without it! Used to be I carried around a Serial Mouse or PS2 (as the case would be) with each laptop; now it is a wireless or the dark-field mouse. I can't stand the touch-pads and disable them immediately upon purchase; The top hats (Thinkpads) I leave on for emergencies, but rarely use them.

    Re: Who Uses a Mouse with their Laptop?

    A few years ago I had a laptop from the company I worked for. First thing I did was buy a usb mouse and keyboard. I much prefer the mouse and prefer a "proper" keyboard . I find the track pad on most laptops very tiresome. The keyboard on a lappy, not very responsive. Hell I wish they'd given me a desktop instead and let me work from home.

    I don't. I like to use the trackpoint thing on my Thinkpad instead. In fact, I took my mouse to work for my desktop because it's better than the one I had and I found myself never using it with the laptop.

    I'm using an A4tech GLaser USB mouse, it will work on almost any surface including glass. (fiendishly clever these laser beams)
    At the moment it's sitting on an old paperback book next to my laptop, it's much easier than using the touchpad.
    Not too expensive from eBay, about £12 IIRC.

    I really prefer touchpads, maybe because I really do like using a laptop in my lap, but my new Asus X202e has such a huge trackpad and such incredibly bad performance at turning off said trackpad when typing that I've set up Ctrl+Space to toggle the trackpad's activity. It's becoming a habit to just whack Ctrl+Space when I want to enter text and again when I'm done typing, so it doesn't actually get in my way very much. I don't use the mouse when typing (I already have the habit of Ctrl+ arrow use for navigation) so it works out for the most part.

    I wouldn't want to turn off tap-to-click, especially on a nice multitouch trackpad like this one. I've always ignored the left and right click buttons, and I need my middle click, anyway. This is a clickpad, so I could just turn off the tap functionality and remember to press a little harder, but I don't want to. = , It's really nice to have that effortless tap in switching windows, or scrolling in the browser (I use touch scrolling in Chrome).
    I know I shouldn't use tildes for decoration, but they always make me feel at home~

    I'm using a mouse with my laptop because I don't like my trackpad. I would even love to find a mouse for my smartphone because I don't like touchscreens.
