The IntelliMouse Explorer is a great addition to the Microsoft hardware family. Microsoft engineered a brand new design that feels great with a sleek new look, and implemented the new innovative IntelliEye Technology. If that wasn't enough, the new programmable buttons make surfing the 'Net and completing redundant tasks much easier. Overall, this mouse is a great buy.
