- Recommend me a decent computer mouse that lasts longer than 5 minutes…
The number of computer mice I get through is annoying. I do have a tendency to slam them down on the desk when annoyed, which doesn't do them any good. Most I've tried just seem too flimsy and lightweight. I was wondering if there's any sturdier and more 'industrial' options out there? 2 buttons and scroll wheel. Apple mice are nice and tough, but too fiddly and don't have a decent 2 button option really. I can't get on with them.
Anything in Titanium and carbon? Come on, there's got to be something a bit tougher.Posted 9 years ago
Got a Logitech at the moment, but it's got bits falling off it and will need replacing. Microsoft ones last about a week.
Molgrips; I tend to bash them down on my desk, as I explained above. I agree this is not reasonable use, but that's how it is. I've ripped them out and thrown them at the wall in the past. I have a mouse-shaped dent in the wall from one launch. One went out of a window and frightened a passer by.
The Apple Pro mice were extremely tough, made of lexan rather than flimsy plastic, but as I explained, less than ideal. I'd like something that tough, with 2 buttons and a scroll wheel. Possible?Posted 9 years agorootes1Subscriber

Dum dum dum, another one bites the dust…
Logitech mouse just failed; the scroll wheel has just fallen out.
PeterPoddy; the mouse will probably outlast the laptop, so you can give it to me when you throw the laptop away.
The new Apple mouse looks interesting, as it has no moving parts. And I see they have a new trackpad thingy, but that looks quite similar in function to my little Wacom tablet really. Not **** cheap either, are they?
If you're in an Apple shop in the near future, and you see a bloke bashing a mouse around and swearing, it'll be me 'product testing'.Posted 9 years agorootes1Subscriber
Rootes1; I may pop into an Apple shop and have a bash at the new Magic Mouse. See if it withstands 5 minutes of bashing it about.
just a suggestion.. 😉 sure one of their genius's will help you bash it 😉
how about these Industrial Mice:

Ohh, I can't afford that Apple stuff. Too 'spensive. I just look after my kit.
