The mouse itself is a thing of beauty. It's available with it's body in a range of different colours, but this is the standard Platinum model (if you want to check out the other available colours, go take a looksie Here
). You can immediately discern the extremely curved shape of the mouse, and its right-hand slant. I will come out and say it - this is hands down the most comfy mouse I have ever used. The shape of the mouse body moulds perfectly to your palm and the finger grooves accomodate your digits perfectly. I never really got on with the shape of the MX700 - the buttons didn't feel right, and the mouse just felt 'wrong', somehow. This, however, I could hold all day.
The receiver looks exactly the same as previous iterations.
You can see it here, next to the undisputed King of The Tailed Mice - the Intellimouse Explorer v3.
