    Announcing the new Microsoft Pro Intellimouse


    The new, Microsoft Pro IntelliMouse builds on our history of innovation in mouse design and offers increased performance, modern gaming features and more customization for work and play.


    The Microsoft Pro IntelliMouse

    Microsoft launched the first IntelliMouse 23 years ago in 1996 (a year before “Twister” was the first DVD released in the United States). That first IntelliMouse was a game changer, and each subsequent update has brought additional performance. The last major update came in 2017 with the Classic IntelliMouse, a fantastic everyday desk mouse, which brought a faster tracking sensor, improvements to the feel of the buttons, and the return of the iconic tail light.

    There was still room to do more, however, and the upgrades to the Pro IntelliMouse make it not only great for work, but also a best-in-class, gaming-ready mouse. It has an upgraded tracking sensor to capture everything from the smallest flicks to the largest gestures with greater speed. In a nod to modern gaming, there are subtle design updates inspired by the shadow and gradients that are popular on Xbox accessories. It features improved key actuation, a textured finish and a braided cable to stand up to the most demanding users. Its buttons feel more responsive and are more reliable than ever and are easy to customize in the Windows Mouse and Keyboard Center. You can even customize the color of the taillight to match your mood, your surroundings, or your custom setup.






    The fundamentals of the IntelliMouse all remain. You’ll appreciate the ergonomic design that has been a vital part of every IntelliMouse. With its wired design, you’ll never wait for it to pair or need to search for a dongle before getting down to work or play. The Pro IntelliMouse is easy to maneuver, with carefully calculated weight, stability and control. The longevity and influence of this iconic mouse have outlived most of the products launched when the first version appeared, and we’re excited to bring these latest innovations to a proven design.

    The Microsoft Pro IntelliMouse will go on sale beginning in late May in Canada and the United States with additional markets to follow in Europe and Asia beginning in July. It will be available in Dark Shadow and Light Shadow.

    Sorry @Brink but this thread made me chuckle.
    Brand new mouse in 2019 and the pictures are of wired devices! Really?

    On a more serious note, I've had several MS mice over the years and one problem they all suffer from is that the ones with rubber coatings become "sticky" over time.

    I cannot tell for sure from the pictures whether this new mouse has the rubber coating - looking at the gallery in your link suggests that it does NOT. Anyway, this post SOLVED Sticky Microsoft Mouse Problem - YouTube shows the issue - I'm going to try this with one of my devices which is currently unusable.

    UPDATE - just done it and it works a treat - got a free spare mouse now..

    All my devices are wired, I prefer it to wireless, especially for gaming.

    Really? Sorry - I haven't used a wired mouse for so long except old ones when I run out of wireless ones when they have issues like the one I mentioned.
    Considering the fact that most have adjustable resolutions, may I ask why you don't like them for gaming? Is there a lag of some sort? I'm not a gamer btw, so this is a genuine question.

    This is marketed as a gaming mouse and a lot of gamers prefer a wired mouse I think due to response times.

    Certainly in the old days, wireless devices introduced lag which if you were in a match was less than desirable. On top of that the device might suddenly run out of juice mid match.

    Understood - thank you @swarfega - (and @z3r010) - not something I'd even considered - my bad - as i say, I'm not a gamer.
    Merely fyi and not a criticism, I find that my mouse batteries last for months (one can use rechargeables of course) and certainly for non-gaming use, there is no detectable lag but as they say "YMMV".

    I guess my comments about wired may have been inappropriate but hopefully the ones about the degrading rubber coating will still be useful.

    I know with some wireless devices you can dock them in a charger which is really helpful. Not sure about the latency these days though.

    If you're happy with your choice, who am I to interfere?
