Anyone who has in this a couple or two decades will know what it was like to play with a mouse without scroll wheel, or side buttons, or optical sensors (or RGB, for the love of God). Before we had two buttons and a ball that occasionally stopped rolling and had to be removed to remove the accumulated crap. In 1996 Microsoft added the scroll wheel to its IntelliMouse and continued collecting more features over the years, such as optical sensor and auxiliary buttons.
With the advent of the Internet and online gaming, mice throughout the life fell short very soon. PC users and gamers needed more versatile, faster and more precise to adapt to the increasingly complex tasks that we could perform on our computers. This story you have already lived, but the one that was missing was the Pro IntelliMouse that Microsoft has just presented.
The mouse has an improved sensor and buttons, just the same as the Classic IntelliMouse that Microsoft released last year. Regarding the color scheme, the company has chosen to approach the color gamut of Xbox, without losing the austerity of the original; that is: no RGB lights everywhere. In this case it has a very subtle customizable light, but nothing more.
Regarding the specifications, the Pro IntelliMouse is compatible with USB 2.0, you have cable and you have five buttons, which three are customizable (strangely, this function is not compatible with Windows 10 S). The sensor is a PixArt PAW3389PRO-MS, with a PPP range of between 200 and 16,000, a tracking speed of 10,160 mm per second and a record rate of 1,000 per second. It weighs 140 g and is available now in the official US Microsoft stores for $ 59.99. It will arrive in Europe in July, yes.
