The factors that are assessed are size, shape, weight and function that contribute to perfonnance and comfort. The study also aims to look for the best type of computer mouse from the four selected. The sample study comprises of 20 randomly chosen students from Universiti Malaysia Sarawak. A questionnaire is distributed for the purpose of data collection for this study. The questi~naire is self-developed and it functions to measure the respondent's background and the computer mouse characteristics that are to be evaluated. A descriptive statistical method comprising of percentage and frequency is used to provide a summary for the overall set of data and the effects of each characteristics on the perfonnance and comfort level for each type of computer mouse. An average mean score analysis is used to determine whether there exist~y significant (strong/weak) relationship between each factor with the perfonnance and comfort level. The researched findings revealed that size, shape, weight and functions do ha~. a strong relationship with perfonnance with the exception of weight for the relation with'Corrt"ort level. From the findings ~ well it was revealed that the best type of mouse is the-ergonomic optical mouse.
