OK heres the story: My current Microsoft USB optical mouse is good, not great and wasn't from the start. It was like $20 and at the time Optical mice were just being released. But lately, it gives up on the computer forcing me to unplug it and plug it in again, CONSTANTLY! Anyway, I got an Amazon.com gift certificate a while ago and still have like $200 remaining. I love my computer (a mac would be better, but...) and I play games, etc. I was thinking about the Logitech MX-1000 laser mouse, the only laser mouse out today. It would be good, as I would be spending $80 on a mouse, a charger cradle and a Wireless RF adapter for the PC, and I would be getting the Laser technology. I went to amazon.com, and its a little under $60! So, I told my dad I want to get it... he thinks $60 for a mouse is too much but since its a gift certificate I can get it... SO I need positive reinforcement... or negative comments. Either way, I need to know if for someone like me who loves computers, and always uses them, if a $60 cordless laser mouse would be practical.
