    Recommend mice

    We need to order a bunch of new ones. Does anyone have any recommendations as to which? They need to be cheap, optical and usb. Also, we have a number of children who are partial to ripping the buttons upwards, so a model where it will be difficult to get the fingers underneath the buttons would be a godsend.

    Cheers all.

    Not sure what you class as cheap, but for something robust, Belkin make a Washable Mouse

    I've bought in some Logitech "U96" mice. They're full-size, OEM, 3 button, scroll, optical, usb mice in black. The leads are long (nearly 2m) which is something we sometimes struggle with on budget mice.

    You can pick them up for around the 4 mark IIRC (see the link for up-to-date prices).
