I have a laptop, but I would like to buy a mouse for it, so I dont have to use the little pad thingy on the laptop. So, would any regular PC mouse work? Or do I have to get a certain kind?

I bought a cheap little USB mouse for mine at Walmart for about $20. It works great, I don't like the touch pad thing... :thumbsup:

awesome. do you happen to know the name, or even the maker of it. Sounds like a great deal. I am not a big fan of the touch pad mouse.

I don't have it here, but it looks a lot like the $12 HERE. I just wandered into the department and found it.... :thumbsup:

Just make sure it has the USB connection

I got this Logitech LX5 Cordless Optical Mouse for $15 on sale, it's easy to install and works great.
