I wanna get a computer mouse for my lappie, optical is preferred but where i get it from isnt a problem really but i only have a budget of $25-30 for it, and i see mouses around for $25.00 etc but i dont know if they are good or anything and i see some mention a dpi level and i dunno wat that means....

so yeah can anyone recommend a mouse i can get in rotorua for $25-30 max :-)

it can be usb or serial or wireless i dont care as long it works and is within my budget :-) and yeah as mentioned..optical is preferred too :-)

am using winxp home as well

Hill and Stewart have a small USB optical mouse that is supposed to be good for laptops as it doesn't take much space in the bag etc. They'd sold out when I was looking before Christmas but they may have them back now. Don't know the cost though.

What's Genius like as a brand? I had a Genius mouse waaaay back, and it was OK, but always seemed a little flimsy.
