Do you put a premium on the mouse?
I think one of the most neglected devices in a computer (especially the desktop PC) is the mouse. As a pointing device it’s one of the most used peripherals (more often than the keyboard) in the PC. I always have uneasy feeling whenever I see someone using a defective mouse.
So I wondered, “do people put a premium on the mouse as a pointing device?”
I think for a segment of the population — i.e. graphic designers, hard-core gamers and the likes — the answer would be a big yes.
I, for one, love using a huge trackball — particularly the Logitech Marble Mouse. I think it’s very accurate and more comfortable to use. Besides, it’s not that expensive either.
I think the most expensive mouse I’ve ever spent on was around Php3,500 for a Logitech MX1000 (which was damaged after a single charge due to voltage problems).
How about the rest? How much do you spend for a mouse and which type do you prefer to use?
