Let me start off by saying I'm a huge fan of Logitech mice. The first really good one that got me hooked was the MX Revolution (click here for the latest MX). It's not a notebook, go anywhere mouse, but it's rechargeable and it has a nice heavy weight to it that helps it glide along your mousepad. A year after getting the MX Revolution I decided to get the notebook version since I wanted to be able to use the same mouse at work and at home. I bought the VX Revolution and have been using it for nearly three years. It's hands down the best mouse I have ever owned. It's impeccably comfortable, well built, and has the hyper-scrolling feature that's made Logitech mice so successful.
Enter the Anywhere Mouse MX, a mouse designed to replace the VX Revolution and become the "go to" mouse of notebook warriors everywhere. The most marketable features of the Anywhere are its Darkfield laser and Unifying receiver. I don't know how this new laser works, but it works everywhere! Whether you're mousing on your Timbuk2 bag or even a glass table. Yes, you can use the Anywhere mouse on a glass table as long as the table is at least 4mm thick. The Unifying receiver is Logitech's brand new USB dongle that's about the size of a US penny. It's designed to go in your notebook and be left there as you travel about and work. It's called "unifying" because it works with any Logitech device that supports the new tech. You can have a unifying mouse - such as the Anywhere mouse - and a unifying keyboard all communicate with your laptop over one single USB dongle. That's pretty darn slick. Here are some pics comparing the Anywhere MX with the VX Revolution. You can click any pic to see a larger version.
