My new mouse: Lenovo ScrollPoint mouse - game changer for my PC usage

Today I bought this mouse at the flea market for $1. I've heard of this mouse before and thought it was cool, but after trying it, I've realized that it's a game changer for me - scrolling is so effortless that regular scrollwheels feel a bit dumb now. It's also a laser mouse (I've been using a Microsoft/Dell ball intellimouse before), which also adds to the effortlessness).

I'm going to use this as my main mouse for the forseeable future! Very impressed, and you just can't beat it for $1('s equivlant)!! :)

Nice find! How does the scrollwheel thingy work? Do you just click the button and then moving the mouse around scrolls?

I've found a couple of WMOs in second hand shops but nothing like this.

Thanks! You just out your finger on the scrollpoint, put a bit of force on it and scroll it up or down. Takes some getting used to, but it's more effortless.
