Apple has launched a wireless version of its top of the range mouse, the Mighty Mouse.

The new wireless Bluetooth 2.0 Mighty Mouse promises a new laser tracking engine that is 20 times more sensitive than standard optical mice for better tracking on even more surfaces.

As before, Apple’s wireless Mighty Mouse includes up to four independently programmable buttons and a Scroll Ball that lets users scroll in any direction.

“We cut the cord on our popular Mighty Mouse to give consumers even more flexibility when using a Mac”, said David Moody, Apple’s vice president of worldwide Mac product marketing.

The new mouse will cost £49.
