Saitek Obsidian Mouse

Saitek's US divsion today unveiled its Obsidian designer mouse. In contrast to most of its more colorful mice, Saitek's newer pointer resembles the jet-black stone of its name and achieves the completely smooth effect by replacing the traditional scroll wheel with a touch-sensitive scroll pad and seam-free top buttons. Browser back and forward navigation buttons are hidden in the concentric patterns on the sides.

The Obsidian eliminates yet more clutter by operating wirelessly via RF and includes two lithium-ion batteries, ensuring that the mouse always has a fresh charge. Tracking is handled by a 1000 DPI optical sensor for an above-average level of precision. The Obsidian works with any Mac OS X or Windows 2000/Vista/XP system and should be available soon through Saitek and other online shops for $50.
