    I feel it is too thin for my taste. I think my hand gets hurt after a few hours of use.... I prefer I go with full feature Logitech mouse which is very comfortable to use. For on the road use, I have the notebook mouse (MS Laser notebook mouse and Logitech V500, and a few other Logitech notebook mice); but, at home, I prefer using the fully ergonomically shaped mouse. I have also started using Wacom tablet on the regular basis with one of my Macs (because it is better for my hands) along with my Tablet PC.

    I've seen it before and it seems sooo cool... but I don't know how ergonomic is is. I have wrist problems as it is.

    Very clever idea. And very, very nice commercial. :)

    I wonder about the ergonomics too. But very clever. :)

    "which is equipped with a PC slot"

    I haven't seen any PC slots in recent Macs... That's where it needs to be plugged in, to charge... So I doubt it'll work in Macs.

    I find it ugly. But good on them for redesinging the mouse.

    I thought the PB 15" and 17" have them. iBook 12", PB 12", and MBP need not apply, though. :( Although, I guess you could get an external PC card USB drive or something like that.

    Sweet!

    I'll take one even though I am not to sure how well I could handle it for several hours at a time.

    That's cool, but it's won't work with Mac Book Pro. I use my PC Card slot already-- but if you didn't it would be cool.

    i wouldnt be surprised to see this company start letting pc makers include this as a BTO option

    Looks interesting. Like the others here I'm not quite sure how easy it will be to use considering its shape.

    Another thing. It charges whilst its in the PC-card slot. That's fine, but that also means that you have to have it in there when you're computer is ON in order to it to charge. So whilst it's doing that you're back to your trackpad... hmmm :rolleyes:

    For guy like me that isn't a big issue. My Laptop is my only computer and it is on a lot at home and would have a chance to charge. I think it could work great!

    I never got the appeal of mini-mice for laptops, is it so you can use it on the dead space next to the trackpad? Or just so it's light in your laptop bag?

    More to be light in your laptop bag. I would think that it would put some serious scratches on your laptop otherwise.

    Eh, since you're already carrying a five-pound laptop, I'd think that adding a "bulky" normal sized mouse would be worth the ergonomic comfort for me at least. :/
