|What is the best mouse for a laptop, wired or wireless and which model is preferred?
Well... you have to say more what you want.
Wireless (NOT Bluetooth): A cord comes from your usb port that has a receiving thingy on it. You can toss this wherever to get it out of the way. And these have batteries, so they are slightly heavier! (This is preference, I like lighter mice but I didn't have a choice for my mouse
Wireless (Bluetooth): Same as above but no little thingy coming out of the port. Not as many mice, but 20+ which I feel is fine. I think they have a faster response rate too... Batteries and heavy. Need bluetooth enables lappy.
Non-wireless: Traditional... cord connected to mouse. Kinda annoying I feel. But no batteries usually.
Optical vs Ball: Well, optical cannot be used on glass or something with a uniform surface. Ball is cheaper and I don't think need batteries...
Hope that helps
