My family has been buying Mac's since I no longer do their Windows tech support. Now I'm Apple Tech support. Can't win.

It’s dead Jim…

MS Wireless Intellimouse Explorer

Well my old MS Wireless Intellimouse Explorer finally bit the dust. I’m on my computer an average of 12 hours a day, and have used this mouse for the last 5 or so years, so I was pretty happy it lasted this long. The left button finally gave out, and I was getting rather tired of changing batteries. It seemed I was getting to the poing of needing new batteries once a week or so. All in all though the Intellimouse was a pretty sturdy workhorse and I was really happy with it.

Wacom Intuos 3

So what to do now? I could just use the mouse that came with my Wacom Intuos 3, but I like to keep my mouse next to my keyboard, and it would be awkward with the way my setup is now.
Home Office

So I took off to my friendly neighborhood electronics shop and big box warehouse stores. Played with a few on display, checked pricing online, and voila – my choice…drum roll…

The Logitech MX Revolution. Find it at Amazon less than $65.


I love it so far, though I’ve only been using it for about half a day. I’ll be sure to post more comments once I’ve had a chance to put it through the rigors of day to day abuse.
