|Logitech Wireless Optical Mouse - Silver|
No one minds a 'mouse in the house' when it's a Computer Mouse, a necessary accessory to operating your desktop or laptop computer.
I've gone through a few 'computer mice' over the years, but they were always the ones with a cord that plugged into the computer. When my most current 'mouse' wore out (stopped scrolling, which was an annoyance), I needed to purchase a new one. I fully expected to acquire another mouse with a cord, until I got to the store and realized that almost ALL of the ones available today were 'cordless'. Oh no, the mouse lost his tail.
I'm one of those consumers who is slow to move on to 'the latest and greatest' when it comes to technology, mainly because each 'step up' seems to involve a learning curve. At 'grandparent age', the learning curve for me is much longer and slower than it is for todays' younger people who are growing up in a technical world and know no other. My world began before computers and, admittedly even before television!
Shopping for a New Computer Mouse
After looking at all of the computer mice available at the store, and talking to a knowledgeable store employee, I realized that the ones with a cord had a very limited selection (ONE model; black only) and were actually MORE expensive than the wireless mouse that was on sale that day.

It operates on one AA battery (included and pre-installed) which provides two years of cordless life.
You can even turn off the 'mouse' with a little button on the bottom when not in use, extending the life of the battery. The Logitech M320 wireless optical mouse is also backed by a 1-year warranty.
Happiness is a New (Working) Computer Mouse
I LOVE my new computer mouse. It works perfectly through the reliable wireless connectivity with plug-and-forget Nano receiver and there is no cord to get hung up or in the way! And the ergonomic design fits my hand perfectly and comfortably.

I chose the silver mouse with a pebbly design shown here, as my computer keyboard is black and my desktop is gray. But wireless mice also come in a variety of colors and styles to suit any decor or mood.
- This Logitech M320 wireless mouse is currently on sale at Staples, where I bought mine.
- Logitech and other brands of wireless mice are also available in many colors and styles on Amazon.
