Targus Wi-Fi Laser Mouse (AMW58US)


$49.99 Released September, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:A pair of regular batteries will last a whole year before you need to change them. Doesn't need Bluetooth, making it compatible with a wider range of devices. Very comfortable to rest your hand on, nice ergonomics.

The Cons:Response isn't quite fast enough for gaming purposes.
