I just wrote my preference for the hard top mousepads; however, I use a
gel-filled one with my laptop (I use a wireless mouse for it rather than
the built-in whatever it is within the laptop keyboard). I like it a lot,
especially since I use my laptop in all sorts of places, so that mouse has
a built-in gel wrist pad that I like. I have pain in my right arm and hand

At my desk, though, I have a good ergonomic arrangement and prefer the hard
top mousepad for typical daily use.

If we're buying a bulk amount, I'm guessing here that we wouldn't sell as
many of the gel-filled type (even though I like mine with my laptop!).

I'm glad you've posed this question, though, so we'll find out this stuff. :-)

Don't like the cloth variety, as they haven't held up as well and I have to
clean the mouse more often with a cloth mousepad.
