1 2 and 3 are correct .
what in fact do you get for f).
60mm for me is important as having gone to a 1920px monitor resolution the downside was I had to perform extra wrist twist, I am at my careful cursor control limit at 60mm, used to have 40mm, drawing in Pshop starts to go ropey after that ! (tablet and pen...NO...cant use with gel wrist rest and no space anyway)
I am not just a Rhino user, using the actual program to sort out inaccuracies caused by mouse as you suggest, I dont have inaccuracies, I use Photoshop and can do all sorts of careful drawing moves with the mouse I have. In it I work to pixel precision. Its also a term I use to mean precise. Pshop units are pixels. I do loads of careful edge selections and the cursor accuracy is important. I also use Freehand vector prog (far less than I used to). I also do video editing and sound editing. Photoshop doesnt have programs to even out errors, but I dont make them with the mouse I have anyway.
I am not looking for a mouse having just invented a set of criteria, I already have a mouse that performs very accurate and enables me to work without having to lift and place a mouse whilst making a drawing move or dragging an object.
Others may like to try and lift a mouse whilst pushing down on the mouse button but I find that counter-action, push and pull at same time.
I have had comfortable mouse does screen in 40mm now 60mm of mat and also precise smooth cursor action since Win3.1 and just need another for win7.
Whaterver mouse you have, you would sooner or later be required to reposition it.
I am only on about not having to lift and place mouse DURING a move. Fully agree. I reposition it outside of that every so often, though probably no where near as many times as the mouse slappers who use default motion speed 5/10 and a standard mouse, Msoft word and the internet and thats all they use.
Logitech G100s seems a contender, anyone use one of those, shame the VX Nano laser is discontinued. Thumb area now has buttons on it. As long as the new thumb rest is reachable with gel rest without moving fingers backwards to allow so, all is still good.
