Back in December we reviewed the Microsoft Surface Precision Mouse, which co-launched with the Surface Book 2. The mouse not only has neat features like running simultaneously across three computers (Smart Switch), but it is quite comfortable to use too.
Previously only available in grey to match the Surface Book, Surface Laptop, and Surface Pro it looks like Microsoft quietly has added a new, all-black version with silver accents. The name has also shifted from Surface Precision Mouse to just Precision Mouse as well (the Surface Precision Mouse is still available, as expected).
We were tipped off to the new color variant by Thomas M who noticed online and we're not sure when it came out, but it's new to us. Selling for the same $99.99 ($89.99 with education or military discount) the all-black Precision Mouse is the same as the grey one besides the apparent shift in color.
We don't want to reach an early conclusion here, but the matte black with silver accents looks darn good. It should also make non-Surface owners quite happy who have more traditional PC box setups at their home or office.
