As far as I know you can just buy any one.  We have 3 of the same make of mouse and are using on HP, Fujitsu and my desktop.

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.

I agree with BumbleB. I used the same one Id had on my HP computer when I changed to a Macbook. No problems. It wasn't very expensive, i got it from a supermarket.

Thanks groom and BumbleB; my local supermarket does not stock computer items so will search other ones.
Less then 10 is very appealing!
