Just one short week ago, rumors were indicating that Microsoft could be releasing a modern take on the IntelliMouse. Turns out those rumors were true, as a modern version of the Microsoft Classic IntelliMouse is now available at the Microsoft Store online for $40.

The mouse keeps the same classic look and feel, but adds in modern improvements such as more precise tracking and reliable button action. It’s a wired mouse, meaning you can quickly and easily connect the mouse to your PC via USB to get into all the clicking action. Other features on the mouse can be seen below:

  • Click with ease: Quickly and efficiently complete your most common tasks with two customizable thumb buttons and a middle click.
  • Exceptional fit: The ergonomic design fits your hand comfortably for hours of pain-free navigation and easy maneuvering.
  • Trusted connection: Plug in the fast, wired-USB connector without waiting for Bluetooth to pair or searching for a dongle.

Please be aware the the customization of buttons is only available on Windows 10 Pro, Windows 10 Home, Windows 8.1, and Windows 8. Customization is not available on Windows 10 S because a software download is required for customization. The Microsoft Classic IntelliMouse will join the Surface Precision Mouse on store shelves this holiday season, which also offers up similar functionality but with the added bonus of working via Bluetooth.
