For about 2 years I’ve been using a 12×18 Wacom Intuos2 graphics tablet for my mousing needs. It’s been a fantastic mouse (and tablet) but I don’t have as much use for it as I did before. So what I’d like to do now is snag me a new mouse and keep the tablet off to the side until I actually need it…which would save me a ridiculous amount of desk space.

So, all of that being said, I need some recommendations for a new mouse. It needs atleast 4 buttons and should allow for some sort of page scrolling (whether it be a ball or a scroll wheel…that’s up to you).

Whoever suggests the mouse that I pick will win…my love. Annnnddd GO!

  1. Any Logitech number – Latest MX, whatever it may be. Possibly their lazer one. I love Logitech!

  2. Logitech’s MX1000 mouse is really nice. It’s wireless, rechargeable, has tons of buttons and is very comfortable.

  3. The Kensington Expert Mouse 7.0 rocks my world – it’s really comfy, has 4 buttons (that can do 6 functions), and a scroll ring.

    The only downside is that it’s $100, but once you’re over that, you’ll never want to give it up.

  4. Logitech MX-500 is the best mouse ever.

  5. I really dig my Kensington Optical Elite. It is comfortable to hold, stylish, and sturdy. 4 buttons plus scroll wheel. I don’t care for their software though, I use USB Overdrive instead. And it is also only like $20.

  6. If you also have a portable machine i would buy a bluetooth mouse latest logitech is always a really good option

  7. If price is of any concern, I’d strongly consider seeking one of the $25-ish Microsoft Tilt wheel mice, available in a variety of odd colors and patterns (assuming you’re right-handed, of course). Wireless, optical, and having four buttons plus a three-way (click / scroll vertical / tilt horizontal) wheel; a similar mouse to the one I have is available from Surplus Computers for $16. (the one I have is more of a right-hand-specific tilt wheel deal that was about $25 at Best Buy)

  8. Logitech MX 1000 is hands down, the best mouse I ever had.
