*CLOSED* ErgoMotion Laser Mouse Review & Giveaway

I’m a laptop junkie.  I LOVE my laptop and it’s portability and able to stash it wherever I need to when company comes (even though I never do – love me, love my laptop).  The desktop lives downstairs in the finished basement – ie away from the kitchen and good TV (priorities, people!) so therefore I’m always using my laptop.

I just bought a new laptop and I love it, except for one thing – the touchpad.  My old laptop’s touch pad let you double-tap instead of left-clicking.  Not so with this new one.  And my husband hates this touchpad too (although I don’t think that’s too terrible since I’m trying to get him to use that old laptop and leave my baby alone).

So just in time to rescue me from my frustration is the Ergomotion Laser Mouse from Smartfish!

The Ergomotion Laser Mouse is a wireless mouse, which of course I love.  You simply plug in tiny USB plug and this mouse is ready to use.  You can even leave it plugged in – it juts out less than an inch so it’s really not at danger for getting knocked out.  Or, you can simply keep the plug stored on the bottom of the mouse in a convenient little niche that has been carved out.

But of course that is not the main attraction in this accessory.  When using a regular mouse, your hand stays in a fixed position while your shoulder and arm do the work.  However, the Ergomotion Laser Mouse pivots, rocks and swivels to follow your natural hand movements so you’re not at risk of Repetitive Stress Injury.

And of course, I love the scroll wheel.  While that is a fixture on any mouse, it’s something you don’t get in touchpads so is always something I love having when I get the chance.

My only problem with the Ergomotion Mouse is that I don’t really have space for a mouse pad as I’m not using my laptop on a desk.  Of course, that’s not the mouse’s fault but more my issue.  For now, I’ll steal one of the kids’ picture books and use that as a mouse pad on the couch next to me while I rest the laptop on my lap.

You can buy the Ergomotion Laser Mouse from Smartfish’s site or from various tech sites across the web.

    First off I’m sad that I found your giveaway only on the last day it was open!
    I need this mouse because I spend a lot of time using the laptop on the couch and the mouse I’m using was a cheap $15 one. It’d be awesome to have one that is much more ‘ wrist’ friendly!
