Back on the topic of mice, wireless is good, just make sure you have some sort of line of sight, as I found that the mouse lag gets bad when the signal has to go through desks and the like. Also if you can, go optical. The difference is incredibly noticeable if you play any sort of game, plus you never have to clean it.

Default Once you go rollerball...

I have got a wired rollerball mouse that I absolutely love. The ones I have used are the logitech models with the huge rollerball. My hand fits just right on the thing and it doesn't have to be wireless because it is stationary on my desk. For gaming I prefer the roller ball in a game like Unreal for the shear mobility of a stationary ball over a mouse.

So for me it's the rollerball all the way...
