    Mice - long cable, PS2 extender, or just left handed

    Hoping someone else has had to deal with this one..

    We've realised that some of our kids are having problems with mice because they're a) left handed and/of b) the cables are just a shade too short for comfortable use (ie: going taut in middle of a drawing, etc...)..

    So, I have a mission of sorts... to find about half a dozen mice with some longer cables so they can be swapped to either side of the keyboard or possibly some PS2 extender cables...

    Thinking about it, the obvious solution is to get some USB mice and just get a couple of USB extenders but I'd be curious if I can get an all in one solution.


    Also while we're at it... has anyone come up with any left handed mice and got any experience of them?

    I have never hit that before, i've tended to be ok with Microsoft Mice or Logitech mice. I would get some cheap PS2 extension leads: http://www.cclonline.com/product-inf...d=0&tid=ex-102 - £3 to education.

    As for LH Mice, I just use normal mice, most mice now are not shaped with a right hand curve like the original Intelli mouse was. I use these http://www.cclonline.com/product-inf...id=953688-1600 as they are similar to what comes with HP PCs. again around £4 for education
