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.

Sorry for the long tittle. Is it possible to turn the mouse acceleration on only when using the touchpad on my laptop and off when I'm using the mouse? I usually don't use the touchpad when the mouse is plugged in if that's any help. If nothing else, maybe a driver will do the trick? Pavel
