The IntelliMouse Optical is a great addition to the Microsoft hardware family. As with the previous IntelliEye mice, this mouse has the same stylish look with a new ambidextrous design which allows greater comfort for a broader range of users. The IntelliEye addition lets you  toss your mousepads, while the new programmable buttons make life a tad bit easier. If you haven't bought an IntelliEye mouse yet - this latest product is even a greater reason to do so.
