You can't game with laptops...plus the screens are too small.

Who is "everybody"? I don't remember these days and for the record...I am not young.
I don't want a branded WALGREENS mouse pad.

And yes, you can certainly game on a laptop. I did for years. Screens can get pretty big today.

Agreed. I haven't used a mouse pad in years. Just the desk top. I guess that doesn't work well if you have a glass top on your desk, however.

If you're responding to my post about wishing I could still give photo mousepads as gifts -- yes, I know I could still do that, but so few people use desktop computers nowadays that a photo mousepad would not be a practical gift.

I got a "free" mousepad once for the winning recipe of the month from the California Avocado Commission. Too bad I lost it in a move!

Yes, you. I don't know. I know a lot of people. I know like 3 that have no computer. And others who use their laptop at a desk so could use a mouse pad.
