8 Reason Every Laptop User Needs An External Mouse

8 Reason Every Laptop User Needs An External Mouse

Every Laptop comes with a touchpad, I know that. But the laptop touchpad can be the worst option at times. When you think you can do without the external mouse that is when it becomes very very important.

This is like a Disadvantage of touchpad. I am not saying that the touchpad is less important, but it is less appreciated when an external mouse is handy. I listed out Reasons you would need an external mouse.


You feel much comfortable when you have a relaxed grasp on the mouse controller than having your fingers engaged on a touchpad.


You can actually get the mouse controller to any position that will suit your comfort. Unlike the in-built touchpad that is fixed, so you have to move your laptop before you can get a desirable position.

Easy Functionality

Between an External Mouse and A touchpad which one is best for click and drag? Definitely it is the external mouse. The smooth nature of the touch-pad makes it a more than once trial when you do a click and drag. For scrolling you can easily use a mouse ball for scrolling instead of moving you fingers repeatedly.

Easy Replacement

That awful moment in a middle of a game then your touchpad gets spoiled and you need a quick replacement but you can't find one, real annoying. But that is not the same story for the external mouse. Here is a story for the external mouse. In a middle of a game then your touchpad gets spoiled and you need a quick replacement, sure you can easily detach the bad mouse, thanks to the plug and play features.

More Suitable for Gaming

No doubts, games are preferably played with an external mouse. You get that rush of relaxed full control each time you make a move with the external mouse.


It is advised to get an external mouse if you do not want to get your touch-pad spoiled in months. But the same cannot be said for an external mouse. It works so long as it has no physical damage.
Unlike the touchpad that can get less sensitive and maybe gets spoiled during usage.


When you get a wireless external mouse you have the freedom to control your laptop at a short distance, so you don't have to stick to your laptop. But sorry that is obviously not allowed with the touchpad. Get an external mouse!


Like me when I get stressed and I'm on my laptop using the touchpad, my hands get so sweaty and it makes the touchpad an ugly thing. This is because of the finger suspension while using the touchpad. So I rush for my external mouse to get my finger relaxed on it's body and maybe get a little of calm body state.

So what do you guys think? Are you in agreement? Or do you prefer your Touchpad over an external mouse? Or are there any reasons you prefer your external mouse that I've omitted? Drop a comment below!

different strokes for different folks.....External mouse kills your battery, increases your ram use, have to be carried along all the time, easily gets damaged because it is not compact.
