    I have had for years a 3M vertical mouse...or more accurately mice as I've had a few over the past 11yrs i've been using one.
    I've got one at work and one at home although I only have them attached to my desk top not my laptop.
    They used to prohibitively expensive but I think they've come down in price to approx. £30-40 which still isn't cheap but I have found it is worth it.
    I use it quite intensively as I use a PC all day everyday doing a lot of drawing which is click click click all day.
    Somebody once told me we do 1000's of mouse clicks a day when we use CAD :shock:
    Hope you find something reasonable

    It's probably best to actually head to the shops that sell these things and give some a whirl: how they feel in the hand may be entirely different to how they look or you think they would feel. Hopefully you will be able to find one to suit, then hunt it thro the net to see if you can get it cheaper! I am perfectly aware that this could be an egg-sucking post, but I thought I'd put it any way. (Mr DD has just taken delivery of a very swish watch (from an online selling site named after a rainforest) and he cannot work out how to open the watchband. I am trying very hard not to laugh like a drain. Neither can he tell the time on said timepiece, it's all very fancy in silver and ergo invisible to one as blind as a bat even with his specs on. I told him to go and look at a real one in a jewellers.) DD

    I use a Logitech mouse, which I find comfortable and very low maintenance.

    Best wishes,
    Kevin.

    Hi Lynn,

    I use a wireless Logitech mouse which I bought from Staples, it's quite small and sits very comfortably in the my hand. It only uses one battery and it has the facility of being able to be switched on and off. It also has an indicator light which flashes red when the battery is low. I couldn't try it before I bought because it was in a bubble pack :roll: but I'm very pleased with it.
    Love, Legs x

    I forgot to say that I too have a Logitech tail-free mouse (ie wireless, just thought of the word!) and I find it very good. I usually remember to switch it off when I have done and so the battery lasts about six months. It's easy to use, you can store its little wireless-thingy-doodah-wotsit in it, it's responsive and my hand feels very comfy on it BUT (yes, it's a big but) I don't often have hand trouble. I do think you need to try before you buy, that's important. DD

    I'm using a Mac laptop, so no mouse, just use two fingers to scroll across the pad with, or one finger to move the cursor, just a light touch is used.

    It also helps to sit in the warmest room, rather than be in a fixed place.
