Microsoft has taken the wraps off the Surface Precision Mouse, a Bluetooth LE 4.2 and wired ergonomic model designed for folks who work on their PCs all day. With a wide flange for your thumb, it bears a slight resemblance to Logitech's MX Master 2S mouse, albeit with a less flamboyant, more business-like design. Microsoft says it's aimed at customers of the all-new Surface Book 2 and Surface Studio, who tend to be graphics pros, coders, engineers and others who need both accuracy and comfort.

The Surface Precision Mouse joins the Surface Mouse, Surface Arc Mouse and Surface Arc Touch Bluetooth Mouse in Microsoft's Surface stable. The new model comes with three customizable buttons that can be set to launch apps, execute macros and do other chores. It can be paired with up to three PCs at the same time, and works with macOS, Android, and Windows 7, 8.1, and 10. Interestingly, the customization options are not available on Microsoft's stripped-down Windows 10 S, even though that's the default OS on the Surface Laptop.

We had a chance to play with the Surface Precision Mouse and found it to be very easy on the hands, so it should make a fine companion for Microsoft's Surface Ergonomic Keyboard. It might leap to the top of wish lists of Surface, or any other PC buyers, for that matter. It arrives on November 16th, and the only thing that might give you pause is the $99 price tag, which makes it the most expensive mouse in the Surface lineup.
