Of those two, probably the "anywhere". Though, honestly, I'm more in the neither camp as well.
For me, simplest is best / most comfortable. Currently, using a Logitech M310. At first, wasn't a fan of its curved inward palm, but grew to like it.
My recommendation, when you find one you like, get at least one extra. You'll thank yourself when it eventually wears out.
First, you'll have a ready replacement (no waiting).
Second, both mice and keyboards seem to be a lot like fashion, form is secondary and they change every season. Until I finally took my own advice, I had to periodically hunt for functional mice/keyboards (a few times) amongst the ocean of crap they put out.
Both are really the same except the Master has more functions and a bit bigger. If your hand is bigger than average, the master would be good choice, otherwise the Anywhere works better. I have both and I preferred the Anywhere.
I use the master 2s.
day job is software development
wanted something with bigger hand area.
(work had defaul dell basic mouse 5 years, home Sidewinder x4 i think using for 4 years)
Quick scroll is great (anywhere looks to have it as well) - scan through files, or VS solution explorere, or document specs instead of
Just now found thumb scroll works in google docs as up/down scrolling. But not in normal web pages.
Thumb scroll helpful if have (questionable) wide code (omg over 80 characters on a line)
Not gotten round to configuring thumb buttons for coding. Used to old habits.
smooth (silent scroll) switch to click scroll (both have it looks)
battery life strong - weeks. and can usb wire, but dont know if connection running over that.
Multiple devices? quick button switching, assuming other devices have Bluetooth.
I Deal with many XP Computers which are not connected to the Internet at all. Does anyone know how to download Open Office to an installation CD or USB Memory pen for distribution to these computers?
Since Oracle (and even it passed it over to Apache), OpenOffice gone into a very slow development cycle (no version since December 2017)... You should go with LibreOffice (a fork actively maintained)...
You can download a msi installer and put in on USB to pass around...

I was talking to guy at work about this just a little while ago. This is likely the result of Amazon's automatic pricing. He has seen it do weird things to prices of the books he used to sell. He really likes this example. I once saw a calendar that I buy every year for less than $20 priced at $190.
Wow! that's the most expensive (cheap) item on amazon I've seen so far. I agree with some that this is either a money laundering scheme or an automation error. If it is in error, I would think that the seller would have it corrected in order to sell the item. What makes it suspicious on these items is that there is only one at that price.
