A tiny portable laptop mouse, but is it too small?

Trackpads on laptops are all well and good for day-to-day computing, but they can be awkward and uncomfortable to use for some tasks.

The HP 2.4GHz Wireless Laser Mobile Mouse is a small mouse that has been designed to be as easy to use as a normal desktop mouse, while being small enough to be carried around with a laptop.

Making small mice comes with pitfalls, as the size of the mouse can make it uncomfortable to use for long periods of time, or result in a lack of buttons and functionality - something the Genius Micro Traveler 900BT suffered from.

The HP 2.4GHz Wireless Laser Mobile Mouse is a little better, with two extra buttons on each side - something often seen on bigger mice. The rubber sides are quite comfortable to use, and give you a good grip, although the top of the mouse feels a bit lightweight and cheap.

The laser that tracks the motion of the mouse is nice and responsive, and works well on a variety of surfaces.


The HP 2.4GHz Wireless Laser Mobile Mouse isn't the most comfortable of mice to use, and the Logitech Anywhere Mouse MX remains the best small portable mouse.
