If you've had your eye on Microsoft's newly redesigned IntelliMouse, now may be the time to pull the trigger on picking one up. Amazon currently has the Microsoft Classic IntelliMouse priced at $21.99, which puts it firmly in impulse-buy territory.
The Classic IntelliMouse, which normally fetches $40, takes the design DNA of its namesake and updates it for the modern age. Based on the IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0, the Classic IntelliMouse features the same iconic tail light and a familiar feel for anyone who used the original. However, Microsoft has made some improvement to make the buttons feel snappier while adding new switches for both the middle wheel and side buttons. Tracking and build quality have also been improved on the latest version.
In his recent review of the Classic IntelliMouse, Windows Central's Jez Corden came away pretty impressed, stating:
Microsoft has reinvigorated a classic with its new IntelliMouse, enhancing what made the old line so great, while throwing in some modern features and configurability. I hate the choice of materials Microsoft went for when settling for its cabling, but almost every other aspect of the product feels polished and classy. At $39.99, you could do far worse.
The Microsoft Classic IntelliMouse is available now at Amazon for $21.99.
