Logitech notebook mouse goes Clip-and-go

Ever left your external mouse behind after using your laptop out of the office or mislaid it while moving between rooms? The new Logitech V550 Nano cordless laser mouse for notebooks features a clip-and-go dock that offers a way around the issue.

Many people prefer a mouse to a touchpad but often leave the mouse behind when moving from room to room or venue to venue. Logitech claims it will change all that with the introduction of the Logitech V550 Nano cordless laser mouse for notebooks, featuring a Clip-and-Go dock. The unobtrusive dock lets you clip the V550 mouse to your laptop.

‚Logitech research revealed that the vast majority of people who use a notebook PC are mobile both within and outside the home,‚ said Romain du Gardier, sales and marketing manager for Logitech South Africa. ‚To meet the demands associated with increased mobility, the V550 mouse offers a complete set of features to make it easier to use a mouse with a notebook when moving from the kitchen to the living room or from one’s desk to a meeting. Now, you won’t have to choose between grabbing your mouse or a cup of coffee.‚

Always ready for use, the V550 Nano also features the Plug-and-Forget Nano-receiver ‚ it’s so small that, once it’s plugged into your computer, you can forget about it. The Nano-receiver stays nearly flush against the side of the computer (protruding just 8 mm), so it doesn’t have to be unplugged when you stow your laptop.

With increased mobility comes increased concern about battery life. You don’t want to be caught out and about with a mouse that’s run out of power. The new V550 mouse offers up to 18 months of battery life. It is the only Logitech cordless laser mouse currently offering this extended level of use. Plus, the V550 Nano saves additional power by automatically turning off when it’s docked or when the Nano-receiver is stored inside the mouse.

To enhance productivity, the V550 mouse’s scroll wheel can spin freely to let you move quickly through long documents and Web pages. Or, by pressing down on the wheel, you can switch to click-to-click scrolling mode and scroll precisely through lists, slides or photos. In addition, the button directly below the scroll wheel allows you to switch between applications (after installing software available at no additional charge from

Logitech’s advanced 2.4 GHz wireless technology provides a powerful signal that effectively eliminates delays and dropouts. Its signal exchanges data between the receiver and the mouse 300 times faster than conventional 27 MHz wireless technologies for cordless mice, indicating that it should dramatically reduce interference.

The V550 Nano is offered in two colours ‚ gray with silver accents and silver with cool-blue accents. And with the purchase of the new Logitech mouse, you’ll receive two Clip-and-Go docks ‚ one silver, one black. An included setup kit makes it easy to install the dock, and to remove it, if necessary.

The new Logitech mouse is compatible with both PC and Mac computers. For more information, visit
