Using a laptop’s touchpad requires a lot of patience. You can’t help having a notebook mouse even though it’s one more piece of equipment to carry along. There are several choices available on the market, from tiny mice to bigger cordless options like the Logitech VX Revolution. It’s almost a desktop mouse due to its size and ergonomic contour. The VX Revolution features the most comfortable and precise scrollwheel that we’ve used so far. Even though it’s not that portable for a notebook mouse it more than makes up for the space it requires on your laptop bag.
