Gaming mice of all shapes and sizes are proliferating so much lately, they almost seem to be outnumbering regular premium mice. Razer has contributed to the trend with the Imperator, a new right-handed mouse with adjustable buttons for "palm and fingertip gamers."
The Imperator has a sleek, black design with a glowing wheel and Razer logo. Gamers will find "contours and grooves specifically crafted to enhance aggressive mousing movements," not to mention a pair of buttons on the left side whose horizontal position can be adjusted to suit your grip.
Other perks include a 5,600-DPI laser sensor, a 1,000Hz polling rate, on-the-fly sensitivity adjustments, and Teflon feet. The Imperator should be able to handle 50g of acceleration without skipping, and its seven buttons should also please gamers without turning the device into an object of ridicule.
Razer says you can order the Imperator today from the Razerzone.com website for $79.99. Retail availability will follow next month in the U.S., Asia, and Europe, where the mouse will cost €69.99. You can place your order here—the mouse looks to be in stock already.
