If there’s one iconic mouse that’s always been around it’s the Microsoft IntelliMouse. I’ve had numerous versions of this mouse, and they’re actually still in use today. I loved the IntelliMouse because it never failed and had amazing tracking for what it was. The original IntelliMouse was wired, much like the relaunched unit from Microsoft. It features laser tracking, a DPI range of up to 3200, and those iconic back and forward buttons.

And it includes a Surface Pen, 8GB RAM, Core i5 processor and a pretty solid package.

Pre-orders are now live at Amazon, Best Buy, and Microsoft. It’ll cost you at least $1,499 to get a new Surface Book.
