I use alcohol to clean the ball and internal rollers. But I'm afraid
laser based mice get also dirty (bottom surface has also to be cleaned
for fast sliding).

Once a year.  Maybe.

Me also... that's more or less the time it takes the ball to be plenty of
fluff and to be uncomfortable enough to use. One can live with some dust
on it... until you can't move it O:-P

                     But as I said on my previous post to Ron, I can
                     live
with them. What happens is that modern mice are a bit "ostentatious"
and full of buttons (or they're targeted to notebook users and are a
bit small).

Not the Microsoft Basic Optical Mouse.  It's just... a plain old, boring
standard sized mouse.

Logitech has also a bunch of plain mice corded and laser based but...
they don't look like my fatty balled mouse :-)

Look, do you see the difference? The old model is slightly curved on the top
while the modern one is straight:


I'm left-handed, so the straight one is best for me.
