Nothing makes your tiny netbook look ridiculous like plugging in a full sized accessories. So if you prefer a mouse to the touchpad on your netbook, you might want to think about investing in a travel mouse. They generally take up less space than their full sized counterparts and they look a whole lot less silly plugged into a laptop with a 9 or 10 inch screen. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a travel mouse smaller than the TEC Lingo. At least not a wireless one.
The Lingo comes in black or white, and measures just 27.5mm x 60mm x 19mm (1.1″ x 2.4″ x .75″) and weighs 23 grams, or about 8/10ths of an ounce. It has a range of about 30 feet and should get about 15 hours of battery life. It should be available in Japan next month for about $50.
