The Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 also offers high-end design elements, a mini transceiver and an ergonomic shape for hours of comfortable use.



The benefits of using 2.4 GHz

  • Confident connection with virtually no interference. Intelligent technology “hops” frequency when it encounters interference, making it ideal for crowded wireless environments with multiple computers.
  • Wireless freedom. Users can sit back and click up to 30 feet away from the transceiver, even if it is out of sight
  • Easy setup and use. Users can just plug in the transceiver and start working

High Definition Laser Technology and smart software

Both mice feature Microsoft’s High Definition Laser Technology, which delivers advantages such as greater precision, smoother tracking and improved responsiveness. The new Microsoft mice also offer these dynamic prductivity features:

  • Smart software connection. One click of the wheel provides instant access to the Windows Vista Flip 3D features, letting users flip through open windows and quickly switch between applications for added productivity
  • Magnifier tool and Tilt Wheel. Users can perform popular commands with a single touch

Pricing and availability

The Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 v2 and Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 will be widely available in April 2008 for an estimated retail price of $79.95 and $99.95 respectively.
