I've used a lot of different mice over the years: ergonomic, gaming, travel, mini, trackballs, extra buttons, etc. Despite the various marketing claims, there's not a whole lot of difference when it comes to comfort. What matters is how well the mouse works! These days, even the generic mice at WalMart do fairly well when it comes to precision and surface adaptability. Laser works better on more surfaces than optical, but how often are you using a mouse on shinny surface? Wireless mice work so well now it isn't usally a consideration. The only issue now is that it may be hard to find a free type A USB port for your wireless hub on your new laptop. Newer laptops don't come with a lot of type A USB ports anymore. The one I'm typing on is brand new as of Aug 2018 and it only has one! A wired mouse doesn't help becaues that would have to plug intot the USB too. The bluetooth mouse, solves the issues. This is the first one of these mice I've ever owned. It's a standard mouse, comfortable, easy to use. It's a mouse. I was a little worried that it would lag or use too many batteries, but I'm coming up on 3 weeks now, never turned it off, and it's as responsive as ever. The thing works from the millisecond my PC wakes or turns on. The wireless dongle mice would sometimes take a minute. I love that it doesn't use a dongle and waste a port. Never had any other bluetooth mouse, but this beats all the wireless ones that came before, even the expensie combo wireless mouse and keyboards.
