The M Advanced (as it's known to friends) maintains most of its predecessor's styling but packs a new set of innards. The star of the show is the Avago 9800 laser sensor, which Thermaltake says can go as high as 16,000 DPI in "overdrive mode." The buttons have Omron switches underneath them, rated for 50 million clicks. Thermaltake says the M Advanced's ergonomics should be an improvement from the previous model, courtesy of redesigned left and right finger rests.
In a further nod to comfort, the M Advanced's sides and palm section are vented, possibly helping hands stay cool during hours-long gaming sessions. The angle of the mouse's top section is configurable, too. As is expected of any gaming peripheral these days, the M Advanced packs RGB LED lighting, configurable across three zones. Last but not least, the M Advanced's onboard memory has enough capacity for five configuration profiles. You can get your hands on this rodent at Thermaltake's online store for $70.
