Microsoft have made way for two more desktop computer mice to enter their lineup today, these being the Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 and Wireless Laser Mouse 6000.

The 6000 model is slightly smaller than the 7000 and features a snap-in transceiver which would make it more suitable for notebook users who like to use a full-size mouse. It sports 1,000 dpi and uses 2.4GHz wireless technology. LEDs on the body of the mouse indicate the charge level, and the mouse also has one touch access to Flip 3D, tilt wheel and magnifier.

Looking at the 7000, this mouse is rechargeable via a horizontal docking station. It needs just one rechargeable AAA battery and will apparently last for a good three weeks after a single full charge. As with the 6000, the 7000 also uses 2.4GHz wireless connectivity and sensitivity at 1,000 dpi.

Both mice will become available in March with the 6000 coming in at $49.95 and the 7000 at $69.95. For more details you can find Microsoft's official announcement here.
