Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000
Released September, 2007
The Pros:Truly plug and play - no driver required. Well designed and comfortable - even for a small-sized mouse. Very responsive - uses laser as opposed to optical technology.
The Cons:Has a 'back' button only - no 'forward' button. Drops the wireless connection now and again - can be very annoying. Poor build quality - on/off button can become intermittent.

And it uses high-definition laser technology for more precise and smoother tracking. Since it does require batteries, a battery life LED indicator is included as well to keep users informed about when a battery is running low. Plus, the mouse can be turned off during non-use to further extend battery life. Additional features include an ergonomic design, 2 regular buttons (L/R), a scroll wheel, and a back button.
