Yeah, I'm kind of thinking that I might like that rubber-coated one too. The Intellimouse Optical is the only mouse I've used ever since it was new and it's still the only mouse I'm willing to use. To me, it's the only mouse worth using in the entire world, so it might be kind of fun to have a rubber-coated version. I don't know if I'd like it, but if I ever have any extra money then I might consider ordering one.
Or perhaps one of those others that look kind of fancy. Right now, I have a total of 4 plain Intellimouse Opticals that are my backups so that I am pretty much guaranteed to always have one if something should happen to the one I'm using and then again and again and again if something should happen to my backups. lol
