After 3 years of the microsoft infared wireless mouse i have, it has given up. It takes 9 clicks to click anything, the roller dont work, and its hard to even move the cursor. So i was looking at this:

ALSO looked at this:

http://shop.steelseries.com/us/mice/steelseries-ikari-optical.html

or you could recommend a mouse for me between $50-$100. It will be used approx 7-10 hours a day. Also it has to be very sensitive, there is only room for about maybe an inch on each side of the mouse to move. I would prefer not to even have to move it at all just slightly move it and the cursor fly's across the screen :).

let me know ty!

You can tweak the sensitivity in your system settings.

Unfortunately, I'm not the guy to ask for mouse recommendations. I get standard Logitech and Microsoft PS/2 optical mouses/mice from my supplier in bulk. When one starts to wear down, I replace it. Good luck though B)

Do you need fancy features? I notice you picked a Gaming Mouse. For my own use I use a Logitech Wireless. I get a month+ on a pair of AA batteries and I didn't bother to load their software. It is just a Mouse two buttons and wheel. I find it fits my hand OK. If you liked the Microsoft mouse why not get another one? The feel and fit is very important for keyboards and Mice.

I suggest because of that going to a retail store where you can try them for feel.

Good Luck
