Better be really close to your computer

 

This is my third one. They work fine on a a laptop, but on my desktop, 4 feet away, it does not track properly. Consider something stronger for your desktop.

Excellent Mouse

 

I especially like the battery indicator feature that lets you know when it is time to replace the battery (which is not very often)
