Kensington Technology Group, the leading provider of accessories that help make using computers more comfortable and productive - and maker of the award-winning line of Expert Mouse® and Turbo Mouse® trackballs - introduced today its 7th generation Expert Mouse trackball. With new features that provide unrivaled comfort, control and precision, the new Expert Mouse trackball is designed to be the ultimate trackball for both Mac® and PC users. Kensington unveiled Expert Mouse here at MacWorld Expo.
High-end features of the new Expert Mouse trackball include the latest execution of Kensington's award-winning Scroll Ring® feature, which circles the ball to provide precise scrolling functionality right at your fingertips. Unprecedented cursor accuracy and control come from Kensington® DiamondEyeTM Optical Technology and the large, high-density Expert Mouse ball, which allows a smooth, solid and effortless feel.
Subtle lines and curves designed from ergonomic principles, a smaller foot print, and a new, soft detachable wrist rest make the Expert Mouse trackball exceptionally comfortable for work, games or Internet surfing. The new metallic black and silver color scheme gives the Expert Mouse trackball a distinctive, stylish flare that matches well with contemporary computer hardware designs.
The Kensington Expert Mouse and the Turbo Mouse lines of trackballs have been favorites of knowledgeable computer users since 1984. Industry-leading features, including a larger ball that increases accuracy and speed while limiting hand and arm movements, and an intuitive button layout that can be assigned a limitless number of time saving functions, has resulted in hundreds of thousands of loyal Expert Mouse and Turbo Mouse trackball enthusiasts. The new Expert Mouse builds on this tradition of innovative technology and design.
"Simply put, Expert Mouse is the best trackball ever made," said Don Angel, Kensington Vice President of Product Management at Kensington Technology Group. "We've been setting the industry standard in trackballs for more than 15 years, and while we've enjoyed the loyalty and enthusiasm of so many Kensington trackball users during that time, we must continue to innovate. The Expert Mouse trackball is just the latest example of our commitment to making our great products even better."
Included with the Expert Mouse trackball is the award-winning Kensington MouseWorks® software, which lets Mac and PC users program the functions of the four Expert Mouse trackball buttons, saving clicks and keystrokes, shortening tasks, and executing repetitive commands. The Expert Mouse trackball is designed for both Mac- and Windows-based computers and connects to both USB and PS2 ports.
