No little gray mousies here

My computer is a laptop, but as often as possible I work at my desktop setup where I have a separate monitor, keyboard, and mouse. This is because I’m old and prone to carpal tunnel, and I’m very sensitive about my mice. Like, I will try mouse after mouse at the store, and reject the ones that don’t feel right because my wrists (if not the rest of me) are lovely and delicate. Ahem.

That said, until recently my mouse was a boring gray thing that felt great, but looked incredibly boring.

Now, however, I have a mouse that not only works great and keeps my wrist happy, it’s pretty, too! The nice folks at Logitech sent me a Logitech M310 wireless mouse in “red tendrils,” and now my desktop looks a lot fancier. This is one of the offerings in their new Logitech Fantasy Collection, which is a more dignified way of say “Oooooh, pretty!” It’s the Logitech dependability you love, with pretty new exteriors to boost your computer’s self esteem. (I may be reaching just a little, but only a little.)

Lucky for you, it turns out that Logitech sent one mouse for me, and one mouse for you! Want to win it? First go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Thursday, July 1st, 2010 to be entered. Winner to be determined by random number generation and fanciness. (Oh, you’re fancy. I can tell.)

Ready? Go!

    jessica (formerly jess of takeflightwithinconsideratewings)

  126. I may not be fancy yet, but this mouse would help get me there.

  181. Squeek!

  182. Much prettier than a boring gray mouse!

  183. omg! I have a laptop (at work) and use the touch pad – because I hate having to switch between keyboard and mouse. Plus – it’s always cramping my writing space. But my delicate wrists are indicating maybe I need a mouse.

    I was searching for one today – and decided anything beyond $20 – was past my price point.

    However FREE is EXACTLY right! Dear RNG – choose ME!

  184. Here mousie, mousie, mousie! 🙂

  190. I’ve had my current Logitech mouse for something like 10 years now and I still love it. However, it may be time for an upgrade…and if it was a free upgrade so much the better.

  191. Well, uh, yes! please!

  192. I use a mouse with my laptop for the same reason. It’s just better.
