Catering to users who require a compact pointing device for total user convenience, ASUS has released the ASUS MS-71 Ultra-Mini Wireless Mouse.
The whole idea behind a portable wireless mouse is for it to be small so it can easily be carried around with a notebook, without adding weight to the notebook case and without crippling mobility. And, as notebooks’ sizes become smaller with each new model, mice need to keep up or soon we will have notebook mice that are smaller than the notebooks.
There are some small notebok mice out there, but the one ASUS just released kinda makes them look huge. Ideal for use together with small and portable notebooks like the ASUS Eee PC or MacBook Air, the MS-71′s compact size however, belies its interior, where several key innovations provide total user convenience.
With dimensions of only 65.8mm (L), 25.1mm (W) and 17.5mm (H), the ASUS MS-71 is often called the “1-finger mouse”, and provides users with a compact pointing solution that is perfect for use together with small notebook computers. Providing 800 dpi of resolution, it is able to provide sharp and responsive tracking for precise cursor movements; while the 2.4 GHz RF receiver provides users with wireless capabilities of more than 30m.
The MS-71 is also equipped with intelligent power management capabilities, and when left idle is able to automatically enter a power saving mode – providing up to 75% power savings. With just 3 minutes of quick charging time, users can enjoy up to 1 day’s worth of operating usage time. What’s more, with an embedded protective IC for extensive overcharging voltage protection, users can rest easy that the MS-71 will never run the risk of overcharging; while the detachable USB receiver dongle with quick-charging dock provides easy portability and charging on the go.
