A computer mouse is a  pointing  device whose movement controls the computer's graphical user interface. Information on the position of the mouse on a solid pad is processed by the computer and converted into digital form - the cursor on the display. To determine the exact position, several different options are used, according to which we divide the mice into ball, optical and laser. Ball mice are nowadays archaic solutions. A ball located at the bottom of the device was used to determine the position. As the ball rotated, the computer recorded her movement. However, the ball was often clogged with dirt and poorly responded to rapid movements. Optical mice are equipped with an LED to record the position, they are fully sufficient for the average user. Laser mice are among the market leaders. Instead of LEDs they have a laser and are very accurate for precise computing.
