If you use a laptop computer, the touchpad may be awkward to use if you are accustom to using a mouse. Some computers have a touch screen, but using a mouse can offer some additional precision control.
Wired mice and some wireless mice rely on using a USB port for connection. Some wireless mice use a small transceiver that plugs into an available USB port. While desktop computers may have 6 or more USB ports, laptops may have only 2 or 3.
A Bluetooth wireless mouse allows a connection to your compute without requiring a USB transceiver. Instead, the mouse communicates directly with the Bluetooth transceiver in the laptop computer.
The latest standards for Bluetooth provide better range, longer battery life, and more data throughput. [Learn More]
