So lets start by saying I love this old mouse... I bought it new, it fits my hand like a glove, matter of fact I liked it so much I bought 2 or 3 more just incase... So now years down the road the right button and bottom of it is trashed, I have some old wired ones but I want a replacement one again, so I looked on eBay and of course didn't see any other then some clown trying to sell it for 100 + used.. So for you computer hardware geeks that know mice, what is the closest match to the Microsoft Wireless Intellimouse Explorer 2.0 Model 1007

I dont care what brand it is, I want it around the same size and fit for a desktop windows machine

Thanks for any input

  Seems like a deal compared to the one for $300 http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Microsoft-Wireless-IntelliMouse-Expl...

My first desktop came with a wireless mouse (Logitech I think) and I hated it as it ate a set
of batterys every week. I replaced it with a wired wheel mouse and when I need to replace em
from time to time, I usually find what I need at the local goodwill (be they PS2 or USB and optical
or have a ball, I dont care) as long as it has the scroll wheel in it for about $.99 cents.
Good luck in your hunt

  Pull one of the 2-3 spares out of the closet?

Keep a bunch of these in a cage.  If you feed them, they'll make new mice automatically.  You'll never need to buy another mouse again.  In fact, you'll have plenty of extras to sell.

Start a show. This old mouse. And fix a mouse every week.

I like the small cheap Logitech ones. M325 and similar. Should be under $10

That's not really an issue anymore with wireless mice; some tout battery lives of up to 2 years.

"Same size" is going to be an issue, as from what I can find, at 5 inches long by 2 inches wide by 1 1/2 high, the Intellimouse Explorer 2.0 was a beast compared to current models. Really only gaming mice come that big nowadays, on those tend to be wired for better latency.

You'll want to look at "large" wireless mice. This one is 4 3/4" long and 2 1/2" wide:

This one is MASSIVE at 3.29 in x 5.05 in x 1.85 in, although I think some of the extra width is due to the thumb rest:

Mechanically or electrically?

Because mouse buttons are made of ABS, a common plastic (about every piece of electronics is housed in an ABS container) that can easily be glued with Testors #3502 glue to build up any worn plastic.

A common electrical problem with mouse buttons is that their solder joints become cracked because the button wasn't mounted completely flush with the circuit board before it was soldered.  Mouse buttons are fairly generic, so you should be able to use one from another mouse or maybe any electronics with click buttons.  However Logitech tends to use the quietest buttons.
