Do you still have one, and dare you show us?
Um.... I use a laptop so I don't have one. Just the inbuilt little pad area.
I have a laptop now, too. But the built in little pad just bugs me. So I still use a mouse.
My mum does the same with her laptop. A mouse bugs me because it's been so long since I have used one.
The library of congress. But it was a gift. Otherwise it probably would have been Jamie Bamber.
happy 20th birthday, mousepad!
The mouse is mouse #3
Laptop here as well. Poor stationaries are as popular today as CRT-TVs.
But laptops don't have very big screens.
I've always used a mouse with my MacBook, but have recently taken to using just the trackpad (which I'm convinced is going to contribute majorly to RSI, despite differing opinions out there).
When I do use a mouse mat, it's one of these, along with an ergonomic (vertical) mouse...
Many people connect the laptop to a bigger screen.
As well as cordless mouse & keyboard. All parts except the poor stationary.
But the laptop becomes the stationary. Plus you have to manually connect all this stuff, which is also very old-fashioned. It looks kinda messy.
And I also don't like to type on a laptop keyboard. It doesn't feel like a typewriter.
Furthermore, some laptops don't even have the inbuilt CD/DVD player anymore, so you need to connect another seperate item - that's not slick and modern, that's messy.
I can not remember the last time I used one. I love my desktop and have been using this style of mouse for as long as I know
my mousemat! had to be
How does a laptop become a stationary?
You only plug it in when you want a bigger screen. Lots of people at my work just stick the laptop on the charger and connect the laptop with the screen. Then hurry off with the laptop to the next class.
Not that I really understand the need for a bigger screen. I think the laptop screen is big enough. If I want a big screen to watch streaming videos, I just connect it to the TV or use chromecast.
I still have the original mouse pad adverting the shop I bought my first PC from - although the PC itself has since been replaced.
If there was a shocked rating, I would have wanted to use 3 of them!
so do I - I have still got my "Tiny" mousemat from Tiny shop which sold Tiny computers and a mousemat with Australia flag on it from early 2000s
Oh my my my!!!!
I still use a mouse but not a pad. Miss Piggy says that is a very common thing unless it´s designed by Prada...and she is the boss at home...
"Hellooooo!! Yes I aaaaaam...!"
Laptop-only-user here as well (i threw my latest desktop PC away in 2008) and using a wireless mouse on this boring black pad:
