Yeah, just saw that myself. There is an external cable that acts as an extension cord; maybe that's where the confusion was. No bother either way as it was good to be reminded of it. It's a definite contender.

Do not use a laser mouse again. your mind will be better getting used to a no acceleration mouse.
I'm definitely getting optical. It's just a matter of finding one that fits what I want. The Avior and G602 are at the top of the list. I definitely prefer the looks of the Avior, and I love supporting small companies that produce killer ****. Nothing against Logitech; their mouse has given me many years of gaming and computing, and their gaming section seems pretty cool and down to earth. I just love finding new companies and giving them my support. It's always nice to see the 'little guy', so to speak, succeed against the big guys. But the G602 might have the edge as far as features.
To be honest, I still haven't found a scientific reason to favour lazer over optical. I know most would say it translates to better in practise, but theoretically... why? I'm just curious to see if any of you know anything about the technology or have bookmarked any articles that detail the differences?
I'll have a look at the Kone Military. I really liked the Roccat Kone XTD. Apart from the lazer sensor and the EasyShift button that couldn't function as a back button, it was great.
