i would be way happier if we saw like a carbon fiber EC, DA, or Rival. Especially if the carbon fiber version was like 5g lighter than the original version.
To add to that, i was watching of all videos a tek syndicate video of a convention... i think it was corsair booth and they were showing off a new mouse and saying the DPI then defending cause apparently it was low compared so of the latest mouse. they said DPI isn't the whole story but, that stuff like polling rate and response time also have an impact on the mouse's feel and performance.
I run my MX518 at 800 dpi as any thing over makes it twitchy and squirrely. perhaps dpi isn't everything?
