Theoretical Improvements Over the MX Revolution
1. Charging Method - No More Cradle! - You never have to stop using your mouse if the batteries run low, because you can plug in the charging cable (to the normal corded mouse place) and keep on going.
2. Receiver - The MX Revolution just missed the tiny receiver boat, so the new tiny size is a big plus, but also their new "Unifying" tech will let you use one receiver for multiple components - in theory then we can have receivers in all our computers and move our accessories around. It sounds great, and hopefully it will work with zero hassle.
3. No More Side "Wheel" - the MX Revolution side "wheel" was deceiving because it looked exactly like the scroll wheel but didn't spin... and personally the side "wheel" was never in reach of my thumb when I had a comfortable grip - So I'm a fan of the new buttons.
What else are people excited about?
I wanted to get an MX Revolution, but since it needed the cradle, it wouldn't really work so well with a laptop.
The fact that it charges via a built in usb port makes it possible for laptop usage.
Also, the whole Darkfield tech is really nice, that way it doesn't matter what surface, it'll just work.
If anything, the Logitech control center better be revamped and I want full control over the four buttons near the thumb, just because I could find better use for the zoom and document switcher buttons than their default purpose.
Any thoughts, or specific questions about features?
I got used to the ergonomic shape though, and the features on this guy seem to be fairly unmatched for what I want, so I might pick it up anyway. I don't game much anymore on my PC, so whatev.
