Microsoft is bringing the Pro IntelliMouse to the U.S. and other major markets after debuting the pointer in China in 2018. This mouse is similar to the IntelliMouse, but happens to be specifically designed with gamers in mind. There's even customizable RGB lighting to bring the pointer to life.
The company has worked on improving the classic and much-loved IntelliMouse with a new PixArt PAW3389PRO-MS sensor, braided cabling, and keys that are stated to be much better with enhanced actuation. The mouse will be available as either Dark Shadow or Light Shadow and should be a good match for various desktop setups.
Microsoft's own software suite will be on hand to allow for the configuring of macros, button mapping, among other mouse settings. The new Pro IntelliMouse will be available in the U.S. later this month for $59.99.
Microsoft's Pro IntelliMouse is a high-performance work and gaming-ready mouse with a solid balance of speed, responsiveness, precision, and durability.
