Microsoft is bringing back the IntelliMouse

Today is a big day for Microsoft, with the company releasing the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, Mixed Reality headsets shipping, the announcement of the Surface Book 2, and a new accessory called the Surface Precision Mouse. But seeing that it didn't formally announce it, another change may have flown under your radar.

Microsoft is reviving the IntelliMouse, calling it the Microsoft Classic IntelliMouse. Based on the IntelliMouse 3.0, not much else is known about it, other than its coming soon. The description showed up on the Surface accessories page, and it doesn't even link to a listing.

Here's the full description:

Inspired by the Microsoft Intellimouse 3.0, the new Microsoft Classic IntelliMouse has exceptional tracking and the firm scroll wheel that fans loved about the original. Tracking is now even more precise with a DPI range up to 3200.

The IntelliMouse has been something of a fan favorite over the years, although it was discontinued over five years ago. Fans should be excited to hear that this one is promising to be even better than the last.

Of course, there's no word on when it's coming, or how much it will cost, but we'll keep you updated when there's more information.
