Default Laser mouse

Ok so I really need a new mouse and with the help of beedub reminding me...I am thinking about a laser mouse. Not optical but laser.

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/pr...CONTENTID=9043

here is the link

OK so I am wondering what this gives me over optical and corded mice..(or both).

Can anyone answer this?

Hah! You'd be suprised where you'd need the accuracy and sensitivity. I could really use it when I'm trying to cut images out! That mouse looks really cool! It's got a ton of features! I'd go for it.

gameguru... if you do alot of image editing, etc. then a laser mouse would be worth it... but for gaming... 4 to 5 mp is more than enough.
