Microsoft’s IntelliMouse had many fans and they were disappointed when the company discontinued the IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0 over five years ago. However, it seems that the company might be bringing this mouse back. A new modern version of the mouse that’s based on the IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0 has now been spotted on the company’s website listed as “coming soon.”

The new version is actually called the Microsoft Classic IntelliMouse and it was spotted on Microsoft’s Surface accessories page. There’s a “coming soon” label attached to it so Microsoft might make it available in the near future.

The new mouse appears to be wired like the original one and will certainly be improved. The listing mentions that the tracking is even more precise now with a DPI range up to 3200. The firm scroll wheel that fans really loved is back as well, so this is really going to take them on a walk down memory lane.

This isn’t really that surprising. Fans liked the symmetrical design of the mouse and its DPI range so it makes sense for the company to bring back the IntelliMouse.

Microsoft hasn’t said anything about the pricing and availability of this new mouse so hopefully, it will come out with this information in the near future.
