  • I think it's just to make it roll better. Sometimes they don't work so well on different surfaces.

  • The local university computer lab doesn't use pads and I'm sure if it hurt the mouse they'd have them

  • Nope but it will make the ones with a ball roll better.

  • i think with the roller ball one's its supposed to help keep dust out of them. with the laser one's you don't have to, but if your comp area is a lighter material then it might work better with a darker surface.
