Gyration Air Mouse Elite review

 

The Gyration Air Mouse Elite will undoubtedly make delivering presentations easier, and it will work equally well as a tool for navigating media on your PC. Its price means we wouldn't recommend this device to everyone, but, if you can think of a use...

How ever big the area surrounding the keyboard there are always times when it is just not large enough. I often find the 30x20cm area set aside for my mouse to move around in taken by notes, cups or even a plate.

Works well with macbook pro

 

This mouse is ideal for media center setups where you can sit on the couch and use the mouse without having to reach for a flat surface. My only complaint is the positioning of the buttons, which make it sometimes awkward to click with your thumb.
