I like the options of forward and back buttons. Ever since I had that on my Logitech G5, I find it very hard to use regular Microsoft mouses.

I tend to use OEM versions of these or logitechs, very very basic mice -- I'm the opposite of the OP and the same as CanadaRAM, I don't want forward and back buttons or anything aside from right click, left click and scroll wheel for the most part. You can typically get OEM (or more likely cheap knockoffs) of these from most any computer store for around $8-10 each.

Same here.
I had mice (or is it mouses) with extra buttons and never used them.

But in general, I think to buy any mouse you need to go to the store and see how it feels in your hand.
Hands are all different sizes, so are mice.
I know last time I went to staples where they had a long line up of them, there were only two or three that felt really comfortable.
I would never buy a mouse without having handled that particular model first.

I have small hands so anything big kind is really uncomfortable for me.

So - don't buy before you try.

Once you have a list of mice that feel comfortable to you, then post the list here to get some comments and do a google search as well.

I like a wired one because I tended to misplace the wireless ones and I also want one that oprates on any surface - but other than that - comfortable to use and two buttons plus scroll wheel is all I need.
"Laptop" mouses are smaller than regular ones - maybe something for you.

Trying before you buy is good advice for sure.

I've got a magic mouse and as long as you install Magic Prefs it's pretty sweet. Battery life isn't as good as the mighty mouse though.

Alright I'll do that once I get my laptop and have money to spend on a mouse.

My favorite Logitech mouse is the MX Revolution and its big brother the Performance MX. They're very solid, ergonomic and are long lasting.
