I picked up a padded mouse pad that caught my attention in the clearance area of a local store. I figured I would give it a try, wasn't out much if I didn't like it for only a $1. I actually found I liked the thing. It's a Gel based pad and over time it appears the gel has compressed and does not offer the padding it did when new. So I was looking around to replace it was amazed at how many different choices there are. There are Gel and Memory foam versions and about a hundred different manufacturers.
So, any one have a recommendation on a padded mouse/keyboard pad that is comfortable and will last a while.
