Hey guys

I've been looking for a portable mouse for some time now but I can't seem to find a good one, by looking at some of the review at the apple store, the ones offered there don't seem to be that great.

I need it to be stable, be able to operate on a smooth surface (so no jerking), since I'll be working on a laptop all over the place in the adobe apps etc.

A reasonable price would be great... don't need a gaming capable mouse or anything super sensitive.

So the question is...

What's the best portable mouse out there?

Thanks

I really like my Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000, but haven't used anything else but a cheap one to compare.

Cheers!

What does "portable" mean to you? Regular size or smaller? Wired or wireless?
