I played with it in the store, but didn't really care for it much. But then again, I'm also a trackball fan...so that often influences my mouse choice.

Microsoft sadly discontinued my mouse of choice. Been using these for about 7 years now. It's the Microsoft Trackball Explorer. I own 3 of them. 2 at home and 1 at work.

Too small in my hand. And if I rested my hand with a decent amount of pressure it would push down flat. They market it as fold it down for travel, but I don't travel with a mouse...so this is lost on me. I use my touchpad on my laptop when I'm on the go, so I don't have to carry anything extra.

thanks, well im going to find out if it suits me soon enough, should arrive in 4 days a whole two months in advance of my Birthday.
my wife is pretending i cant have it until then, of course i will have to test it when it arrives to see it works so i can return it if not.
i hope i dont find it too fragile although i dont think i put a lot of pressure on my mouse so we'll see.
im afraid im old school. im not keen on trackpads and the same with gaming, i use a xbox 360 wireless controller hooked up to my pc as i hate using the keyboard to play games.

I have had that mouse for five to six months now and I couldn't be more pleased with it. I have fairly large hands and it fits me very well. On the durability side let's just say it's looks are a bit deceiving. I've folded and unfolded this thing hundreds if not thousands of times and it still locks just as tightly as it did when new. It will take a bit of getting used to but now that I have it is my favorite mouse. I have also yet to find a surface it will not work on.

That's funny, most of us who do any gaming on our PC's like the keyboard and the mouse way better.
