I'm confident in saying at one stage or another, we all owned a Microsoft Intellimouse growing up. The Microsoft Intellimouse was symbolic for innovation since it was introduced in 1996 and eventually made extinct in 2012. Microsoft have announced that after 5 years, the Microsoft Intellimouse series will resurface with the Microsoft Classic Intellimouse.

"Inspired by the Microsoft Intellimouse 3.0, the new Microsoft Classic Intellimouse has made modern improvements to a fan favorite. The features that fans loved about the original are still here - customizable buttons, the classic ergonomic look and feel, and the wired USB connection" Microsoft says.

The Microsoft Intellimouse was a pioneer for the PC mouse, with introducing the world to everyday features we take for granted such as a scroll wheel, optical sensor and auxiliary buttons- All this began with the Intellimouse. The Classic Intellimouse will feature a respectable 3,200 DPI sensor, three customizable buttons, Microsoft BlueTrack technology and that elegant, stylish yet simple design associated with a classic Microsoft mouse.

At $39.99, the Microsoft Classic Intellimouse is a great price, for a great mouse. Microsoft have yet to announce a release date, or pre-ordering options for the Classic Intellimouse. However, you can view all the available information here.
