Default Here, mousy, mousy!

I am looking at geting a mouse for my netbook. There are times when I just wish I had a wheel.

I am looking at the following:
  • RF wireless
  • both hands orientation (I'm left handed)
  • small USB connector (not the large bulky ones)

I always liked Logitech, but their only small USB connector is $47

I have also used Microsoft wired mice before, but they are just "basic" mice.

Is there any other brands you would recommend?

Thanks in advance y'all!

Hahah the two you already mentioned. Bought a small microsoft mouse (not for me) for a notebook pretty recently actually. Since it isn't mine, I haven't used it but it looked to be OK.

Wow, kmote. Didn't expect that

I don't need anything too expensive. All the stuff in stores are rather expensive, even after online shipping. I'll sniff around, see what I can find.

Edit: Sweet! Best Buy has a Logitech M305 Wireless mouse, only $39.99 (USD) They have crappy no-name mice or unknown brands elsewhere. The known brands are expensive. I might pick that up this weekend. I'm not the fondest of Best Buy, but the price is the same as Logitech's price, cant go wrong there. Save on shipping

Just pick up one of those wireless no brand mice and you are set.

You didn't read the above, did you? I don't like those bulky USB receptors.
