Notebook mice are probably one of the most preferred accessories in the notebook peripheral category, and over the last few years these little mice have gotten more technologically advanced and user friendly. I personally prefer a notebook mouse not only because of the ease of use it provides, also because it helps one get things done at a faster pace than using the built in touch-pad utility.
Notebook mice have emerged over time, compared to it's desktop counterparts they are still a little behind in technology, but they pack numerous features inside a small and sleek design. Microsoft has implemented High Definition laser technology and bluetooth connectivity in Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000, which is great to have specially in a notebook mouse.

Along with an easy setup and comfortable ambidextrous design, it also includes a battery notification light that lets users know when the battery is low, four buttons to easily navigate the computer, and a carrying case to transport and protect the mouse while on the go.
