Hot or not: Logitech's new clip-on travel mouse

Logitech's new Nano V550 notebook mouse clips onto your laptop for short jaunts. Do you love it or hate it?

When it was announced last year, the Logitech VX Nano notebook mouse earned a CNET Editors' Choice award for its compact, comfortable shape and dual scrolling modes.

Now there's a new Nano in Logitech's lineup: the V550 Nano, announced on Wednesday, adds a unique "clip and go" dock that lets you attach the mouse to your laptop's lid.

According to the company, plenty of users carry their laptops among rooms in the house or from a desk to a conference room at work; the dock lets you carry the mouse and laptop in one hand. "Now, you won't have to choose between grabbing your mouse or a cup of coffee," a Logitech rep quips in the press release.

Otherwise, the V550 Nano incorporates all the features we loved about the VX Nano, including the dual-mode scroll wheel, tiny USB receiver, and 2.4GHz wireless technology. Even better, the $60 V550 Nano costs a bit less than its predecessor.

It's difficult to judge a product like the V550 Nano based just on pictures--mousing preferences are such a personal thing, as we've seen--but I do like the idea of being able to roam from room to room without juggling my laptop, cell phone, mouse, and beverage (one of which is almost always dropped in the process).

What do you think: is it hot or not?

With stunning lines and sharp handling, the F-type S Coupe is an excellent sports car, and as impractical as a true sports car should be.
