Mousepads are all about personal taste. You can buy one for status or cuteness or just because you like the picture on it, but the Accutrack Mousepad is all about performance.
It has a ridged surface so it works better with both rollerball and optical mice. Let me say that again: It helps your mouse work better. It has a rounded shape, which really increases the usable mousing area. It's a hardtop pad with a non-slip base, so it won't slide around your desk. And it's really thin, so it gives your desk a neater appearance.
