    time for a new mouse

    ok here's the deal. i've been using a $20 laser mouse for 2 years, and i've been happy with it. problem is, i apparently live with a bat/dolphin hybrid that can hear me blink my eyes....from 3 states away.

    so i needs me a new mouse, one that still has laser function, with a good tactile feedback, but without the "click" noise.

    any suggestions?

    So do I. They making gaming trackballs. Mine is a logitech laser style, 4 buttons, and the ball is in the center so you left click with your thumb and right click with your ring finger. Pointer and middle fling the ball. Its a very simple high performance set up. I'm not asking you to switch a mac or anything

    besides the obvious difference in control, i use a 5 button mouse, so switching to a trackball actually would offer less functionality.

    LMFAO... choosing a mouse base on its gaming abilities. It must be a guy thing or something.

    no...it's a gamer thing. non-gamers don't give a shit, and are usually happy with a touchpad.

    5-function laser mouse is what i need. i've tried optical mice & they all suck. i've tried using trackballs, and i have a harder time trying to get fine motor control from a trackball. besides, a 5 function mouse has 7 mappable keys--in addition to the look aspect. that's way more versatility than pretty much anything else.

    Like I said, a guy thing .

    Wouldn't it be cheaper if you just bought your room mate some ear plugs?

    i wish earplugs would work...but not, that's not going to solve this problem.

    p.s.
    april, i'm surprised at you. sweeping generalizations about gaming being a "guy thing" are so cliche.

    Come on now, we all know probably 90% or more of serious gamers are guys.
