Hogwash! Too heavy? How often do you carry your mouse around? I just
push mine. I have a Logitech wireless mouse and wireless keyboard (came
in a set) and I have had no problems. Lighter is not always better. If
the mouse is too light-weight I tend to "over-track" and have to spend
time backing up to zero in on my work. To each his own, I guess.
BTW I believe "optical" is how the mouse "reads / tracks" not how it
sends its signal, which is the question on the table - wired or unwired.

Yep, they work just fine. The bottom of my mouse says Logitech Cordless
Click! Plus Optical Mouse. My keyboard has some extra buttons on the
top for volume, skip, stop, play for music control, an e-mail key etc.
This particular mouse has the scroll wheel "lean" feature which pans
left or right. The downside of the wireless mouse is remembering to
hang it up at the end of the day so it is ready to roll when you are.
Also, since I mouse with my left hand and most others use their right,
it is easy to switch sides without messing with the wires.
No, I'm not left handed. I just use my right hand for keyboard commands
and the left to "draw". Trying to avoid carpal tunnel issues by not
over-using one hand.
i use that and have done for a while now, i tried quite a few different
wireless bundles b4 settling on this 1, the mouse is comfortable and because
its microsoft, if your on windows xp you dont need to install any drivers,
its also cheaper than most. 1 thing i will say is if you are going to get a
new setup dont get a mouse with 1 of those scroll wheels that goes sideways
as well, they are quite hard to push down and hold for paning (well, i
thought they were, I've had 2, both m$).
I use a Logitech cordless trackball. The trackball is used by your thumb
so there is no moving of the mouse. It takes a little getting used to,
but I would not back to a regular mouse. My wrist no longer hurts after a
day of drawing.
