Here's a big question, "What came first the mouse or the pad?".  Well, the mouse was invented in 1968 by Douglas Engelbart, and the best that I can tell it was Jack Kelley who invented the mouse pad in 1969. Since then, the mouse has come a long way in the materials that they were made of. There are several types of materials that are used to make a mouse now-a-days to make a mouse, such as:  plastic, all types of recycled rubber silicone and neoprene. But, the most common is the hard shell plastic type. The earlier models just used the desk top or table top mouse, and that created a lot of problems such as collecting too much dust inside of the mouse and  scratching the surface. The earlier models of the mouse contained a metal ball, that would scratch the surface of whatever it was moving along. Now there is laser and wireless.

The benefits of using a laser or USB cord, would allow the PC user more of an accurate movement, more of a pin point stopping power, and a higher reaction speed, in the way that the curser would react to the movement of your hand. Along with the comfort that the mouse offered in the way that it sits in your hand, this mouse allows less dust and debris from collecting inside of the mouse. Now-a-days, you have track balls and laser mice that are a lot more accurate and are made to protect the surface of your desk. To help fix some scratching problems, they have coated the steel ball inside of the mouse with a rubber coating and made all different thicknesses types of pads to choose from or they make them with a laser. This mouse from the Targus company is made from an all plastic and uses a USB cord to attach to your lap top or net book. This is made in China and only costs $8.99 and you can get this at Best Buy, unless you get lucky enough to get one of these for free with the purchase of one of the carry cases.
