You can find a computer mouse for just about any use. To figure out what kind of mouse would work best with your PC, you need to know your mouse options.
· Mechanical mouse
Houses a hard rubber ball that rolls as the mouse is moved. Sensors inside the mouse body detect the movement and translate it into information that the computer interprets.
· Optical mouse
Uses an LED sensor to detect tabletop movement and then sends off that information to the computer for merry munching.
· Infrared (IR) or radio frequency cordless mouse:
With both these types, the mouse relays a signal to a base station wired to the computer's mouse port. The cordless mouse requires power, which comes in the form of batteries.
· A mouse with many buttons:
The extra buttons can be programmed to do specific things, such as navigate the Web or turn pages when you’re reading a document. The typical button-ified mouse has about five buttons.
· Trackball mouse:
Like an upside-down mouse. Rather than roll the mouse around, you use your thumb or index finger to roll a ball on top of the mouse. The whole contraption stays stationary, so it doesn’t need a lot of room, and its cord never gets tangled.
· Stylus mouse:
Another mouse mutation enjoyed by the artistic type is the stylus mouse, which looks like a pen and draws on a special pad.
· Cordless 3-D mouse:
This kind of mouse can be pointed at the computer screen like a TV remote.
