What wireless mouse does Oppo recommend? UPDATED with purchase. I know you're really really curious what mouse some a-hole on the ultranets bought, right? ;)

Alright Oppo, I know a lot of you know tech stuff down to some crazy minutia levels, so help me out. My Amazon Basics wireless mouse just shat the bed. I want something with two buttons and a scroll wheel that fits nicely in my meat paws, and isn’t a pile of crap. The most complicated thing I will be doing, is drawing on AutoCAD. Everything on Amazon seemingly has 4.5 stars, until you actually read the reviews and see nothing but complaints. I hate using the track pad, so I want to buy something in the next couple of hours, so it can start it’s way here. Or I could go into Micro Center if I must.

Turbine for your time.

Update (for anybody who gives a turkey):

I went to Micro Center and bought the cheapest wireless mouse they had, an Inland im105, for $6.99. Frankly, for what I need it for, it’ll be fine. If it lasts a year, I’ll be really happy.

I appreciate everybody’s input. I learned a lot of stuff about mice, and one of these days I may take the plunge on one of the nice expensive ones several of you recommended. At this time, I’m buying something out of pocket to use for my school laptop, so I’m just not willing to spend that kind of coin. I probably should have mentioned that up front, but I’m glad I didn’t because I learned some stuff, and I like learning stuff.

Several of you recommended ones that were in the $20-30 range that I was comfortable spending right now, but the reviews are so hit or miss, there just doesn’t seem to be enough of a difference in durability to justify spending 3-4 times more than the crappy one I bought.

Anyways, thanks again Oppo. As usual, y’all are the best.
