Lauren recently bought a nice IBM laptop, and I raised my eyebrows when I found out she’d bundled in a mouse and some other accessories. I hadn’t thought of IBM as a leader in mouse technology, but I was wrong.

Mouse by IBM

It’s a honey, and I’ll probably buy one for my next mouse. The look may be pure Darth Vader, but it fits the hand like a dream. The little glowing blue doohickey is your scroll-wheel, only it’s way easier on the finger joints; plus, it’ll scroll left-right as well as up-down. There’s another button conveniently located under your thumb, which I’m sure would be useful to the gamer. Highly recommended.
