The essential PC mice
The PC mouse is an essential accessory for navigating the graphical interface, like Mac and Windows. The motion of the mouse is related to the motion of the cursor on the PC or laptop. It comes with a scroll wheel and buttons with which the user can easily perform easy to complex functions like copy, paste, delete, and editing images. The mouse helps in manoeuvring on the PC monitor and comes as either the manual separate mouse or built in mouse. PC mouse needs to be cleaned on a regular basis for swift functioning, else it gets clogged with dust and lint.
What are the various types of mouse available?
There are three types of computer mice available. The mechanical is the most common PC mouse, which has a ball located under its base. The function of the ball is that when it rotates, the sensors in the mouse detects the motion and direction and accordingly moves the cursor on the screen. This mouse requires a smooth mouse pad to function effectively. The second type of mouse is the optical mechanical mouse and the only difference in this mouse and the mechanical mouse is that the mouse movement is identified optically that provides better accuracy. The third type is the laser mouse, and considered a new generation mouse. This mouse comes with two essential features, light detector and light emitter. With the laser light, the mouse detects the movement and accordingly moves the cursor on the PC. The fourth type is a new mouse in the market from Microsoft, called as the Blue Track Mouse. It is based on the blue track technology, which works on any surface and does not require a mouse pad. This comes with a laser beam that is four times larger than the average beam.
Wireless mouse, for a better comfort
While buying a PC mouse, one should check out the ergonomics. It should easily fit in the hand and must be able to move smoothly on the surface. While buying one, ensure it provides perfect claw, fingertip and palm grip. Another feature to consider buying one is the wired mouse or the wireless mouse. Wireless PC mouse is more convenient than the wired mouse. This mouse however may interfere in your other wireless devices at home like G router or cordless phone. It also requires battery, which drains out in approximately 60 days.
