The old saying goes that heavy PC users should always spend their money on the parts of the computer with which they interact, i.e. the monitor, keyboard and mouse. This is where they will really feel the benefit of their investment. As far as the mouse goes, even cheap mice usually have a reasonable air of quality about them, but what about the surface they're used on?
Modern optical mice sensors allow them to be reliably used on almost any surface, so the temptation is to do exactly that! Most mice work fine on a table or desk, but the slight extra drag can become subliminally tiresome after a short while. And that's before you even consider the wear and tear which will soon show on the desk surface!
Bring new life to your everyday computing experience with a mouse mat that was designed for the job. It may seem crazy to spend more on a mouse mat than on a mouse, but think about it for a second - every time you move that mouse, you'll enjoy the experience. A washable mouse mat will outlive several generations of mice. For years to come. Once you've tried a mouse mat from Japanese specialist Artisan, you'll never want to be without one!
