It appears most wireless laser mice are "mobile" ones, which basically mean they're tiny.

 

I am looking for a full-size, wireless, laser mouse.

 

Any recommendations?

 

I don't fancy paying more than £30.

Want that with a USB dongle or bluetooth?? I've been looking for a bluetooth mouse for quite some time. I'm not a fan of Apples and the rest I've found of a similar size are more expensive.

My laptop has Bluetooth, so I'm open to both methods :)

I will, however, be online gaming.

Knowing what kind of grip you use helps alot. But I do love my Logitech G700.

Found them BNIB for $30 on eBay, so around $55 to my door with taxes and import fees, as Amazon.ca or any retailer don't carry them. Seems about on par with UK Amazons cost.  Hope they are more comfortable than this teensy Microsoft notebook mouse.

only downside about the g700/g700s as well as the performance mouse mx is battery life only lasts you at most a week (half a day to a whole day on g700/g700s under max mouse settings (1000mhz polling rate and max gaming performance settings))

In my case, my choice is the Logitech V220 Cordless Mouse for Notebooks.

 

Despite the "for Notebooks" in the labeling, it works a treat on desktops - and regardless of OS.

 

It works with either SetPoint (Logitech's pointing-device utility), IntelliPoint Pro (Microsoft's similar utility for Windows 7 and earlier) and the Keyboard and Mouse Center (Windows 8+/Server 2012+).

 

It's full-sized (same size as the original Microsoft Mouse), ambidextrous (using any of the utility software listed above, the right and left buttons can be swapped), and it's decently priced ($30USD before discounts and sales, even retail).

 

It has longer battery life than the G700, and you can use it without macros.
