hardware/superminimouse.jpgAbout the size of a tube of lipstick, this Super Mini Mouse is compact yet accurate. Just plug it into the USB port on your laptop and you’re ready to go. (A PS/2 version is also available.) This mini mouse measuring in at 1 inch by 2.5 inches is perfect for those who hate using the pointing stick or touch pad on their laptops. While I like the touch pad on my laptop, I also find that after using it for awhile, I get a bad cramp in my hand. With this Atek mouse, I can rest the mouse on the laptop, on my lap, or anywhere that is convenient. It has eliminated my “touch pad” cramp.

No matter the size of your hand, your index and middle fingers rest comfortably on this mouse. Because it is an optical mouse, the Super Mini needs no mouse pad, and produces smooth, accurate cursor movements even when used in a tight environment like a cramped flight tray. It is a featherweight, tipping the scales at just 1.1 ounces. It comes with its own handy carrying pouch and takes up little room in a computer bag. It works for Windows 98 or better and can also be used with Macs. The included 3 foot cable is just long enough to be useful with tangling.

I love its sleek good looks as well as its functionality. So what’s not to like? It’s hard for me to live without a mouse wheel, so I hope the people at Atek will develop a mini mouse with a wheel, even if it needs to be a bit larger.

Whether traveling from home to the office or from airport to airport, the Super Mini Mouse is a great companion for any laptop user.
