We recently found out that Microsoft began selling a new black version of its Microsoft Surface Precision Mouse (review) – except it drops the Surface branding as the new color scheme is more PC-neutral for any setup.
The original Precision Mouse was announced with the Surface Book 2 and is on the same level as Logitech's popular MX Master 2S (review) – in fact, we later compared the two and found it came down mostly to personal preference and brand loyalty.

The new, non-Surface Precision Mouse is the same as the original (which is still available, so there's no need to re-review it, but it does warrant a few real, non-rendered photos. We've seen a lot of interest from users in this mouse and for a good reason – it not only can do some nifty things (like run on three PCs at once), but it looks the part too.
The only downside to the black version is the heightened ability to attract visible dust, especially on the rubbery sides. But if you have plenty of all-black PC accessories you're familiar with this effect.
Overall, if you're looking for a great desktop mouse that is comfortable to use and is built for Windows 10 users, then the Microsoft Precision Mouse is a good bet. It's typically $99, but you can grab one on Amazon for $94 with Prime shipping.
If you find the original grey Surface Precision Mouse just as desirable you can have it now for just $79 on Amazon.
