MS Laser 6000 and 7000

Microsoft this morning reworked its Wireless Laser mouse options for desktop and notebook owners with a pair of mice focused on simplicity rather than sheer control. Both the Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 (pictured) for the desktop and the notebook-minded Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 connect over RF frequencies and roll with new ergonomic designs, an improved scroll wheel grip, and fewer buttons to reduce clutter. The 7000 supplies a button that can be used for Flip 3D on Windows Vista systems or assigned elsewhere on other operating systems, while the 6000 serves as a full-size mouse but includes a miniature USB transmitter that stows away inside the mouse for travel.

The updated mice should both ship in March and will sell at prices of $50 for the 7000 model and $70 for the more complex Wireless Laser Mouse 6000.

    no bluetooth

    Don't make them with bluetooth or anything. Everybody needs a bunch of extra dongles to hang off their computers.

    Only MS...

    could make a pair of mice, call one the 6000 and one the 7000, and make the 7000 the less complex one.
