The wireless is actually not bothering me at all, and I think I'll end up liking it better, it's just been so long since I primarily used a "mouse" mouse. The real problem is if the touch pad went, how long before the next problem crops up. We use the lap tops for our business, and I hate to buy a couple new ones when my business is up and down.That would suck Esox. Glad you finally got back to cruising THP! We actually use a wireless mouse with our laptop all the time because we don't like using the touchpad.
