    Think it's time to give our mouse a mention. It's what we reach for and use most often. I think I've been through 10 of them until I found one that felt right. For the longest time, I would insist on wired as you got zero lag no matter what. I always wanted a light mouse, A mouse with batteries always felt like moving a rock on a mousepad.

    But this year I picked up a Microsoft 10 wireless mouse and absolutely love it. So what are YOU guys using?

    Ha! I use the same mouse. Shame it's discontinued but you can find it on eBay. The weight is excellent and good feedback. I also use a Kensington.

    Kensington Expert Trackball

    With all the clicking and dragging, this is a secondary mouse that I use. A trackball stays in the same place and saves my hand from cramping.

    If you use Pro Tools, get a trackball.

    The mouse is personal preference thing.

    It's the first wireless mouse that acts like a wired one.

    Although on a mac, iv become accustom to the magic mouse but still prefer a thumb trackball

    @an0nym0u5beats Don't you accidentally trip the trackball?

    @Tristan not really sure what you mean by tripping the trackball? But a cool trick i use is flicking. I have a widescreen monitor and a tv mounted acting as the 2nd monitor, i "flick" the track ball, launching the mouse from screen to screen very quickly. I also do this sometimes when in just 1 monitor. Its like playing pong with yourself really fast lol.

    The only downside to the trackball is forgetting to clean out the gunk that builds up inside 0_o
