>> There are USB ports on the left and at the back on mine

Ahh  you may be ok then.  Mine are on the right -   With me being right handed they get knocked when I use the mouse.. and or move between the mouse and to use the keypad.

Thanks for all the comments. In the end I bought this: http://www.comet.co.uk/cometbrowse/product.do?sku=375349

It's not cordless, but the cord is very light, and the mouse is the smallest one I found and has a very nice action. The USB stick will come in useful too.

Too late as usual "story of my life"

I was going to suggest a "Kensington PocketMouse Pro" Mod No 72116 www.kensington.com
Normal 2 buttons plus scroll wheel, which also acts as a 3rd button, so 4 functions in total.
Just slight smaller than most mice and the cable and USB connector actually recoils completely into the body of the mouse (ultra thin cable) but not the cheapest of mice.

Lead, approx 20" when fully extended.

>> Do they do mice with short leads for use with lappies?


lol - I finally managed to get around to opening* up the logitech notebook mouse.  and low and behold it has a short lead. (approx 20" compared to a normal 5 ft lead).  Sorry Astral it looks like someone beat you to the patent  :D


(after ripping my fingers with the damn plastic packaging)..  :angry:

Was it that horrible stiff celluloid stuff? It should be banned on safety grounds.

Best to use scissors with that stuff; you can shorten the lead at the same time as opening the packet if you're really clever! ;)

lol @ astral  :D

Yeah it was that horrible celluloid stuff thats so tough even scissors struggle with it.   Whoever designed those packages should be shot.
(Or at least tortured with the equivalent of plastic paper cuts.)

Fair enough put a product in it cause its strong - but at least make an easy way of opening the package rather than molding plastic around the product and sealing it all the way round  :'(

I don't know if this gadget might help with those packages or not, it states  'cellophane'  but I think this may include celluloid ...... I may try one  (another thing for my list)

I don't think that the cutter on that would be tough enough for celluloid packs. To be honest, I've become rather disillusioned with Lakeland in recent years, as so often their products don't live up to the hype.

That gadget for cellophone wrap ie whats around cds/dvs etc is probably ideal. 

However this stuff is real tough and theres no give in it at all - even the scissors struggled. :/

Aaaah    ... I've had a closer look and now see it's for CD's etc as you say Kitz ....silly me !!  ....  cross it off list !!     what about a block and tackle  :lol:


Eric,  some of their stuff is a bit far fetched  ( the tea bag squeezer foir instance    ::)  ;D  ) ... I don't buy much, and only when visitors are due as the postage costs to Europe are astronomical !!  although I might have a quick reccy when over there in the next couple of weeks   :-\    I just spotted that item in their catalogue which  they still send to me ...
