    Need a new mouse/touchpad for the htpc

    I'm looking to replace the mouse on my htpc as the cord has developed a short. I am currently looking at Logitech's T620 and T650 but other devices that support windows 8 gestures would be welcome. I will be using this mainly to watch movies/tv and play some Win8 metro/modern games.

    80$ is my upper limit but 30-60$ USD would be preferred. I also have a few requirements of whatever device ends up being purchased:

    1. Must work well enough on a non standard surface such as a couch, beanbag chair, or pants leg
    2. If wireless Must have a user replaceable battery
    3. Amazon is preferred as I have a prime membership

    I'm guessing the T650 don't meet requirements 1&2 but if someone could confirm that it would be appreciated.
    Current Computers: Gaming Rig, HTPC
    Future Builds: Pfsense Firewall
