This week our freelancers networking meet up was in the Battle of Trafalgar pub, Brighton. I couldn’t make it and Laura kindly held the fort and took some notes for us:

If you’re looking for a vertical mouse, Evoluent do excellent models but their prices are rather steep. If you haven’t tried one before, I suggest the Perixx PERIMICE-518 models, they come in left and right handed and wired and wireless. They are 95% as good as the Evoluent for substantially less money. Using a vertical mouse puts less strain on your arm than normal mice or trackpads, and I thoroughly recommend trying one and am happy to chat about the four I’ve had over the last ten years, so get in touch if you’re not sure about them.
