| | Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000
The Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 follows the elegant lines of its non-rechargeable counterpart, the 6000. That means that's it's really only suitable for right-handed users, but for them it's an excellent design. The curves mean that it sits comfortably in the hand, and should help to reduce strain ? particularly important for heavy-duty mouse users.
It comes with a small charging plate that plugs into the mains and refills the mouse's batteries. There's also a tiny receiver that goes into the PC's USB port. The software, which is optional because the mouse works without it, can be used to customise the mouse's function buttons and make other changes to its settings.
There's a scroll wheel, which is standard on modern mice (and allows motion in four directions), as well as a special button to access Windows Vista's flip-3D function (which shows running programs graphically). This mouse costs more than most but the design and the custom buttons make it worth the price if you use a mouse for long periods each day.
The only problem is that left-handers need not apply.
