I chose ambidextrous, even though I'm primarily right-handed. I use the mouse exclusively left-handed, because all the keyboards have the number pad (and arrow keys)on the right side of the keyboard. By using the mouse left-handed, it frees up the right hand for speedy number entry. I learned this years ago, when I was still a mechanical design engineer and had to design in CAD all day. It turned out to be much more efficient once my left hand got the hang of the mouse thingy. Now, if I have to use the mouse right-handed, I struggle a little bit.

Though I still use a tablet right-handed.
