8Balls Hardware take a look at something that many take for granted...your mousing surface. Check out their latest review of the Everglide Mousing Surface to see if this is for you. here's a snip:
"Pricing is around RM 75, equivalent to USD 19 or so.Thats quite expensive, considering the Ratpadz goes for around RM 10 (USD 2.60) less, depending on where you shop for it, in Malaysia of course. Mucho moolah for something so small. For that money, I could go get something else. Heck, add on a few bucks and maybe get a fUnc pad. Then again, there are those few who prefer a small mousing surface. The Everglide pad works fine on ball mice, but not all optical mice. Maybe if it was a colored pad, it would be a different story."
