Aside from the Sharp Zaurus 5500 PDA, which I'm a bit mad at because I'm having problems with wireless networking ....

The Logitech MX700 wireless optical mouse. Oh man, is this sweet! Smooth, responsive, and absolutely no lag time whatsoever. The thing slides across my Allsop plastic mousing surface like an Atlanta driver on black ice. Highly recommended.

WOW
Nice purchase. I assume those were birthday presents to yourself.

The mouse looks for futuristic. I remember when I went from a lame ole' tan mouse to a black and silver comapq mouse. I thought that was futuristic, but that's nothing compared to that gem.

I assume that is a cradle it is stittin to charge it up?

It looks like an electric shaver, or a hand held muscle massager!

Cool beans too!

I've got one of them, too. I'm not too fond of it, or maybe I just have not gotten used to it yet. It is a little too large and the buttons seem odd to me. The wireless keyboard is incredible, though.

I have the Duo set also and have been VERY happy with it. I think the mouse is so much more comfortable than the classic MS mouse I am forced to use at work! Now they have the bluetooth MX, which acts as a bluetooth hub for your system.

New tower CPU will be my next acquisiton.

Today I had to settle for *just* gettting a new 17" flat panel monitor to replace the volkswagen sized 15" monitor I had from the 20th century. :)

Since my desk is a 42" x 63" antique it now looks even bigger!

Heres mine:



It doesnt have the docking station thing like yours does, but I have rechargable batteries. Its a good mouse, but its kinda finicky for playing games (Counter-Strike mainly) as it will sometimes not respond. Oh and by the way, if you have pets (or if you are going bald) you'll want to make sure you vacuum and dust xtra well around your computer. A small hair in the optical part will make you want to throw the mouse out the window, which is the only bad thing Ive encountered with using a wireless mouse...I tend to walk off with it or throw it at the dog.

(just kidding)

The MX is designed to allow gaming. It has very high resolution and frame rates, so there is no lag like other cordless products. I use mine in 1942 and UT2003 with no issues.
