They have that for a little less and its a bigger number so maybe its better lol.
It is quite a bit bigger than the 3000, the 3000 seems like a mini version of this mouse. I would estimate this mouse to be 30%-50% larger. The 3000 is also pretty light in comparison to the 5000. I have never held the 6000 and do not know it's weight.
I haven't felt a whole lot of computer mouses, but the 5000 has defiantly been the heaviest. It weighs a little more than the older bulky Dell mouses that are commonly seen at public institutions.
As a side note the Razer Salmosa (full size, non-mini) is an extremely light mouse in comparison to the Microsoft 5000.
Defiantly follow Trotter's advice and go to a store and feel the computer mouses to get an idea of how your uncle might like them.
