Default Short corded Mouse for Laptop?


I'm looking for a new mouse for me laptop.

I've decided to rule out wireless and bluetooth (although BT would be nice with my integrated) purely because I dont want to be messing with batteries and I'm not gonna be using it 10ft away or whatever... my mouse stays with me about 10cm away...

Which leads me into the question; I'm looking for a nice corded mouse that does have a huge cord. I have a plain Logitech corded mouse at the moment and I find the cord gets all tangled up and annoying.

So any nice 20-30cm corded opticals/lasers out there? Preferably Logitech/MS
