So I am going back to school for Cad and Electrical Engineering. Mainly taking some classes that work wants me to take. I just purchased a new laptop and am still looking for a mouse and new router. I am also looking for a good mouse with programmable buttons. I have heard of guys programming buttons on the mouse with program specific shortcuts. Didn't know if anyone else uses AutoCAD regularly and has a mouse that works great for them. I am also in need of a new wifi router. Any suggestions? I don't want to break the bank on these items and would like to stay under about $250 for both. Thanks in advance. My last question is if I did okay on picking out the laptop? I got the ASUS G750JX-RB71. Here are some of the specs:

Get a space pilot if you want a programmable cad mouse. You don't really need one though. You can program all the shortcuts you want on your keyboard.

Ok, thanks. Is this laptop look good enough to run AutoCad for awhile?

I use a similar lap top and a 3 button mouse for Solidworks at work. ( presumably similar power required) Works fine and dandy.

3 button track ball worked fine too, but I prefer the mouse.

We have several seats of Solidworks here. They can choose what ever controller they want, Most of us use the 3 button mouse.
