I’m assuming I’m not the only one who is touchpad-inept when it comes to laptops. No matter how easy they make them to use, I have to have an actual mouse. But then I run into what I’m sure you have…mice made for laptops basically suck. Either they’re too small, or they fit in your hand funny, or something else is wonky about them. And then there’s the receiver. I’m sitting here right now annoyed by the receiver on mine, because my USB ports are on the side of my laptop and I constantly whack it, especially when I’ve got my laptop actually on my lap.

The Verbatim Easy Riser Bluetooth mouse just might be the solution to all those problems. It requires no external receiver since it uses Bluetooth to connect (which I suppose would be a problem if your laptop isn’t Bluetooth enabled, but aren’t most of them?). It works with PCs, Macs, and anything else that uses Bluetooth, like the Motorola Xoom tablet. It’s a laser mouse, and is streamlined to fit into small places. But this one has another feature that puts it a head above the rest: you can adjust its size.

Yup, that’s what I said. There is a switch on the bottom that allows you to change its height to best fit your hand. No more cramps from clutching a tiny little laptop mouse! It can be used right- or left-handed, and has software which will allow you to customize the scroll wheel functions to fit your particular needs. When not in use, it does have a sleep mode to save battery life. Speaking of batteries, it runs on two AAA (not included).

MSRP is $29.99 US, which is not that much more than other laptop mice. These are available now at various retailers and e-tailers.
