My New Toy - A Microsoft Laser Mouse 5000

I splashed out today and got myself a new mouse. Having always purchased cheap mice I decided I wanted something that actually feels nice and spent some of my hard earned cash at Harvey Norman who where nice and gave me a 10% discount off the $99 pricetag (only after I asked though for it despite the big sign saying keyboards & mice were all less 10%, their hopeless checkout system didn't automatically give the discount).

After a few hours of use all I can say is that it's well worth the money. Considering how much use my mouse gets I certainly almost wish I'd upgraded earlier!
