The CPI or DPI depends on how manufacturers make the mouse; the higher the CPI, the faster the cursor moves with mouse movement. However, software can adjust the mouse sensitivity, making the cursor move faster or slower than its CPI.

The higher the DPI increases sensitivity so I'm not clear with your statement. Can you please elaborate?

Laser RULES!

Especially DUV KrF excimer lasers... -- just an inside laser guru joke... Hope you appreciate my humor?

For mice, I have optical on one rig and laser on the other.

Laser is more sensitive (some might say accurate) and by far better on atypical surfaces.

Typical surface would be a softpad mousepad, which laser mice wont be able to perform at there optimal performance.

My mistake, sorry. You are right, with higher CPI the sensor has to be more sensitive. I disagree that greater sensitivity means it's more accurate though.

It's just technically right.

I can agree with you, as the cursor is all over the place at very high DPI; hard to be accurate.
