Logitech V450 Nano mouse

Logitech has announced a new mouse for notebooks, the V450 Nano. The mouse uses a laser sensor to achieve greater precision than optical mice, and like other Nanos operates wirelessly, using a tiny 2.4GHz receiver that plugs into a notebook's USB 2.0 port. This receiver can also be stored inside the mouse, in order to prevent it from being knocked out of a notebook during travel. Controls include left and right buttons plus a scrollwheel.

As it is a notebook mouse the 450 is powered by AA batteries, which should last approximately a year on a single charge. The mouse costs $50, and runs on both Macs and PCs, with the former running on Mac OS X 10.3.9 or higher and the latter requiring Windows XP or Vista. It should ship to the US later this month.

    I can't believe it!

    I can't believe how small they have made the USB receiver for this mouse. I have the predecessor product, and it has been great -- but this looks like the receiver would hardly stick out the side of your laptop at all.

    Scroll horizontally

    Beautiful!
    Is horizontal scrolling worth the bother yet? Usually I only trigger it accidentally, and when I try to use it, it would take dozens of clicks to scroll the distance I want to move and I just end up using the scrollbar anyway.
