What dumbo wrote the article? Were they even born before IE3.0 launched?
Microsoft is promising even more precise tracking with a DPI range of up to 3200 for the new Classic IntelliMouse. Fans loved the DPI range of the IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0, and the symmetrical design, so it’s understandable that Microsoft would bring this particular mouse back to life again.
It’s not clear when the new IntelliMouse will be available, or whether Microsoft has gone truly retro with a PS/2 connector, but we’ve reached out to the company for more information.
The CPI range of IE3.0 was one of it's drawbacks, 440 CPI only and nothing else. The mouse isn't symmetrical = ambidextrous, it's right handed only = asymmetrical. It came with USB only there never was PS/2 version as far as I know, it may have come with a USB to PS/2 adapter a green one I think.
