    Hey,

    I was asked by a friend to find a mouse for his grandmother who wants to start using her PC. She has fairly small hands but also her index finger is smaller than normal because it has been cut up to 1cm back (accident when she was 5). So looking on ebuyer, I haven't really need able to choose one for her (there are hundreds!). Either they are really small or really big. I think a mouse around 8/9cm should be a good size.

    Would those mice with a big red ball - the ones you move with your finger - be better than a standard mouse?

    If you could give me some suggestions - around 15 pounds max - nothing fancy, just one that will be easy to use.

    Thanks

    Unfortunately I use a Razer mouse, which is somewhat out of that price range. However, if the user has small fingers it may be worth looking at a compact laptop mouse, they're smaller.
