If you're anything like me and hate having to use that annoying touch pad on laptops then you'll certainly be looking for a laptop mouse.
After you've torn or cut your way through the all annoying plastic packaging you'll find the mouse, one AA Energizer battery, USB receiver, CD-ROM and instructions. Plug the USB into your laptop or PC and away you go.
The mouse works on Windows Vista without a problem, and I didn't have to install anything from the CD it's just plug and play. The mouse is certified to work on Windows Vista since it has Microsoft's Certified for Vista logo on the packaging too.
The mouse is light, and really good to hold as it's rubberised round the sides, it's pretty accurate too. Allthough on my coffee table when using it, it wasn't that good so I had to use a mouse mat.
When you're done using the mouse you just pop the USB receiver in the back of the mouse. There is a button the receiver holds down which stops the mouse from draining the battery. Not sure how long battery life is as I've just got this, but somebody said on their review it's about 6 months which is great.
Really good quality product from Microsoft as you'd expect, and I highly recommend it if you are fustrated with that touch pad.
Thank you to Play.com for an excellent service and product as always.
