haha, that's literally the only thing I've found that will work as a mousepad. Everything else just makes the cursor jump wildly around.

And whilst you're on the internet, it may be used for 'other' things.

Yeah, it's true. I quite often spill ketchup and such while eating behind the computer. :(

Ikea do a large desk mat (45cm x 65cm), makes a really good mouse mat.

PS you've got WoT on the wrong computer.

 

It also keeps ketchup off of the desk top.

Awesome thanks!

 

It's all one computer. I use the laptop screen for testing and the massive screen for the code. Plus the laptop isn't really powerful enough to run WOT in 4K

Can vouch for having the wrong mouse.

The one I got seems to work no matter the surface as long as it isn't dirt or something.

Then again, mine's an oldschool one with a ball. :P

Is it white or transparent ?

 

I always have doubts about having a gigantic screen to run wot in 4k versus a 24'' running wot in 1920x1080 at arm's lenght : you end with the same precision and less stress on the graphic card.
