If you're one of the many laptop users that finds touchpads and pointing sticks frustrating to use, but don't have the space to carry an external mouse, then the MoGo Mouse (£50 inc. VAT) may answer your prayers.

Slipping into your laptop's PC Card slot for recharging as well as storage, this pocket-sized mouse carries the dimensions of a data card with the functionality of a full-size mouse.

Synchronised to your laptop in just a few seconds using Bluetooth, a flip- down kickstand raises the mouse into your palm for a firm grip, reducing the risk of RSI.

Responsive and comfortable to use, this is a great option for travellers with a need for control. Long-term use can become uncomfortable, but certainly less so than using a touchpad. The price may be steep, but it's a novel concept that has been executed with plenty of style and design forethought. What Laptop Staff
