Logitech's optical mice turn 10

Logitech marked the 10th anniversary of its trackball mouse on Tuesday with the addition of four new models that feature optical-based tracking technology.

The PC peripheral maker took the wraps of its Logitech V400 Laser Cordless Mouse, the Logitech MX610 Laser Cordless Mouse, the Logitech LX7 Cordless Optical Mouse, and the Logitech V270 Cordless Optical Notebook Mouse for Bluetooth. Prices range between $59.99 and $39.99 and delivery starts this month.

The latest generation includes a design that can tell people when their mouse battery is low or notify them when they .

Logitech also announced a new ambidextrous cordless mouse for the leftie in all of us.
