A Mouse for the Lefties Among Us!

My wife is a leftie. Until now, finding a mouse that been designed just for her left-leaning tendencies has been difficult. People like her have had to either adapt to mice made for normal right-handed folks, or use an ecumenical, somewhat shapeless mouse that fits either hand poorly. Well I've got some good news. If you are a leftie, or know one, you can check out the Logitech MX610 Left-Hand Laser Cordless Mouse. CNet has a very favorable review:
With a black-and-silver color scheme that fits in with most modern computers, the MX610 left-handed laser mouse is shaped so that your hand rests in an upright, neutral position for better ergonomics. Two volume buttons, a mute button, and the e-mail and IM buttons are lined up on top of the mouse, along the right edge; two programmable buttons are placed further down on the side for easy thumb access. The rubbery scrollwheel moves smoothly, providing tactile clicks but no noise. The wheel also tilts left and right, letting you scroll horizontally. There's a small on/off button on the bottom, and the mouse shuts off automatically when the computer shuts down or sleeps. A battery-indicator light on top of the mouse lets you know when you're running low on power.
