Snap to Pack

Logitech releases a new mouse designed to appeal to portable PC users.

Logitech has announced the Logitech Notebook Optical Mouse Plus, a traveling USB mouse that is designed to be a snap to pack.

The mouse features an innovative cord wrap. When it's time to move, the thin cord winds into a track built in the base of the mouse. Once the cord is wrapped up completely, a snap fastens the USB connector to the bottom of the mouse, protecting the optical sensor. This packs the product into a small easy to move package.

Market-research firm IDC estimates that the installed base of worldwide portable PCs and notebooks will grow from 117 million at the end of 2003, to nearly 204 million in 2007. With this 74% increase it is clear that the demand for notebook specific mice will grow.

"Some notebook users prefer an external mouse to an integrated pointing device," said Roger Kay, vice president of client computing at IDC. "These people, particularly travelers, value a mouse's portability and want something they can carry easily."
