    The HP 2710p TabletPC is my main tabletpc, The trackstick comes with 2710 is not very comfortable but I don’t want to have a wireless mouse with protruding receiver. This mouse will make life much more easier. I must confess that I love it right at the first glance!

    All I carry with my Latitude XT is the power adapter (the ultra-small 45W one – I love it!!!). When I go on a longer trip I sometimes take with me, in order of importance; my MX Revolution mouse (great but too big if you are to carry it with you all day long), the Latitude XT Media Bay and my diNovo Edge keyboard.

    I just carry a Kensington Lock and sometimes a cordless mouse while I study in the library of my university. All other things I need and could be carried around are already included in my X61 tablet.

    I have a Gateway notebook and I have never been able to comfortable use the touchpad, so I always use a mouse. My cordless mouse’s usb adaptor is over an inch long and constantly gets in the way.

    I carry my power cord and a full-size, wired mouse. I wish I had a small, wireless mouse, though!

    I use my Latitude XT along with the slice battery and power adapter (65 w). When not using it in tablet mode, I would appreciate the wireless mouse.

    I don’t really carry anything with me but my new thinkpad x61 tablet. I do need a mouse though, because no matter how much I love the trackpoint, it’s not quite enough when I’m drawing pixel art and navigating my favorite program by clickteam.

    We don’t have any snazzy accesories for the HP Paviliion dv7 notebook besides the standard power cord and a full size wired mouse. The Logitech V550 Cordless Mouse would be a perfect start! Thanks for the entry!

  20. Michael Anderson

    Used to carry my Might Mouse, but the Lenovo s10 has no BT, so I just carry a spare wired mouse and a USB drive.

    This would be great with my macbook air, the receiver is key.

    I use a X61 Tablet and the notebook accessories that I carry with me are:

    1) A small wired mouse

    3) An extra x61 stylus, and

    I have a Motion Computing M1400 that I have used intensely for years in my private practice, along with a Lenovo Thinkpad USB keyboard (after my Motion Computing bluetooth keyboard died… which of course they no longer make).

    Always have an older Logitech mouse. While the dongle does dock in the mouse for storage it would be nice to have one with a dongle small enough to just leave in the USB port. Also have a Logitech headset that usually gets added to the bag for high quality audio on Skpe calls.

    I have a usb key for rapid files transfer, but that’s about it.

    I take the ac adaptor with me and wireless mouse from a wireless desktop so the usb wireless receiver is very big (bulging and heavy notebook bag!).

    I would go so far as to say I hate using the touchpad but will use it when all other options are exhausted. I definately prefer using a mouse.

  36. Monica Butuc

    03/23/2009 at 2:44 pm

    I will include peripherals too. When I go out with my laptop I need the small optical mouse because I hate using the touchpad,especially if I’m in a bus. Then I need the USB Flash drive to borrow it to friends I meet, and soon I plan to get a backup battery because I can’t keep doing stuff on my laptop for more than 2 hours in the Performance power plan.

    I use a BenQ wireless mouse and a Think Outside Stowaway Bluetooth, folding keyboard with my Q1.

    I have a lot of accessories for my Fujitsu t2010, but the only ones that go with me everywhere are a Wacom grip pen which I prefer to what came with the computer, Sony noise canceling earphones, and my Lapworks Futura laptop stand.

    A cheap microsoft wireless mouse. I got it when they had a cashback offer.

    I’d only want to carry a power adapter or extra battery, and a mouse.

  42. Ben

    03/23/2009 at 7:15 pm

    I only take my power adapter. I love the trackpoint on my thinkpad.

  43. Heather

    03/23/2009 at 7:33 pm

    I am pretty boring, but for work, its just a number pad, a mouse, and an ethernet cable.

  44. Corinne

    03/23/2009 at 8:14 pm

    Unfortunately no accessories for me. I’m always having computer issues, so I never bother. But I do want a cordless mouse.

    In my laptop bag in permanence are:
    a compact 12V inverter powerful enough to feed my hungry desktop replacement laptop (an old Satellite P20 that eats 120W!),
    a logitech wireless mouse with usb transceiver stick and
    a mouse pad.
    When packing, I decide whether to bring a headset. I always bring my power supply because my battery pack now lasts less than 10 minutes :(

    When I know I’m going to work in the minivan, I bring a leftover piece of shelf that acts as my table top with room for the 17″ laptop, paper on the left side and mouse pad on the right side.

    I just bring the AC adapter for my laptop.
