Currently you have two options when bying a Logitech mouse:
1) You can buy a decent mouse (e.g. MX revolution, MX1100) but then you will be stuck with a huge reciever
2) You can buy a mouse with a small reciever (e.g. VX Nano, V550) but the mouse will be crappy (not enough buttons) as well as small and uncomfortable (I could fit three VX Nano under my hand)
You might say that the first category is for normal PCs while the second category is geared for portable use with a notebook. But that doesn't even make sense. 60% of all new consumer computers sold are notebooks, which means that notebooks ARE the new normal PCs. Basically over half of the users would profit from the nano reciever and a lot of them would prefer a normal sized, feature rich mouse to go with it.
So why aren't you offering e.g. the MX1100 in a package with the nano reciever?
(An alternative would be to offer a nano reciever that is compatible with all recent Logitech mice. Hell, if the recievers were freely interchangeable between mice I would even by a MX1100 and a VX Nano just to be able to use the MX1100 with the Nano's reciever.)

Buying a notebook for gaming and advanced use it´s not usually the best idea, since you are paying more money for much less hardware. So the notebook sales doesn´t imply that there is a bigger market.
Also, if a had to buy a mouse for extensive use I would never buy a cordless one, but I think too that they should make a low energy mouse, with less functionality but bigger.
