There are many types of computer mice to choose from. The most common upgrade is a gaming mouse, which is an excellent option even if you don’t game at all or you’re working in an office. A high quality mouse will feature a molded shell designed to fit your hand and an accurate sensor that is capable of tracking your movements perfectly. Gaming mice will feature very high DPI (dots per inch) sensitivity, a fast polling rate for maximum performance, and lots of extra buttons that you can customize to fit your needs. For more information, you can click here to read our blog article on how to choose the perfect gaming mouse.
As the name implies, a wireless mouse is simply one that has no cord connecting it to your computer. Instead, they use a USB dongle or Bluetooth to wirelessly connect to your computer. By removing the cord, the main advantage is that you are completely untethered and will never have a cord tugging on your mouse when you use it. Along with a wireless keyboard, a wireless mouse is an excellent way to clean up the clutter on your desk.
Wireless mice require a battery in order to operate. Most mice will either use disposable AA or AA batteries, or use rechargeable batteries that are replaceable. Battery life depends on the model you choose, but some mice can last for over a year on just 1 AA battery. Some higher end mice feature built in batteries that you can charge via a USB cable or a special dock for the mouse. The advantage of a charging cable is that you can continue using the mouse while it is plugged in and charging.
A mouse’s sensitivity is measured in DPI, or “dots per inch.” In simple terms, the DPI is a measurement of how sensitive the mouse is to small movements. A higher DPI means the mouse can more accurately track movements. Most people will probably not be able to tell the difference between different DPI sensitivities, but for enthusiast or pro gamers out there, even the smallest difference is noticeable.
Some mice and designed for presentations. They are usually smaller, wireless, and pair together with a laptop for running presentations. Most of these mice will natively work with powerpoint to allow you to progress through slideshows as well as start and stop any video that may be embedded. Finally, some presenter mice also include a built in laser pointer.
