Taking a page from Jeeps and other rugged equipment, Logitech created the solid V400 Laser Cordless Mouse for notebooks. The $50 mouse, targeted at mobile users who might be prone to accidentally dropping mice, has exterior rubber rails to ensure it can survive impact, says Logitech spokesperson Kate Brinks. The rubber exterior also enhances the mouse's sporty look, she says.

The V400 uses two lasers to measure frequency changes of reflected light as the mouse moves on a surface. That helps the mouse track the surface better than traditional laser mice, which take pictures of the surface, the company says. This dual-laser technology makes the mouse smaller, quicker, and more accurate than its competitors, Logitech officials say.

The V400's design also provides more flexibility than other notebook mice, Brinks says. "We felt that many people are taking laptops to unconventional spaces such as Wi-Fi hotspots. [The V400] can track from different surfaces," she says.

The ambidextrous mouse has a power indicator on top that blinks when the battery is running out, Brinks says. The 2.4-GHz receiver, which snaps into the middle of the mouse, allows it to work up to 30 feet from its base station. The V400 runs on one AA battery. Logitech officials didn't provide a ship date, saying only it would become available in the near future.
