I've been alternating between an ancient Logitech M-RM67A and a $5 Gigaware laser travel mouse on my desktop, and I think it's finally time to bite the bullet and shell out for a new mouse. I game pretty frequently, but I'm not necessarily looking for a game-oriented mouse. I just want something comfortable and of decent quality.
My Logitech works fine mostly, but eats through batteries like nothing, and most likely has a low DPI spec. My Gigware (http://rsk.imageg.net/graphics/uc/rsk/Support/ProductMa...) says it's 1600 dpi, and might be, but it feels extremely jittery and inaccurate. I don't know enough about polling rates or whatever to explain that...
When I use my mouse, I sit my palm just below the mouse pad, and use a combination of wrist rotations and finger movements to get the cursor where it needs to be. I guess that qualifies as the "fingertip" grip.
I'd like something of similar size and weight to my Gigaware if possible (8 cm long, 5.5 cm wide, 3 cm tall, and 75 grams in weight), although I'd like something more ergonomically inclined. Anything that's the same length or larger than my Logitech (12 cm) need not apply.
