GIGABYTE Officially Launches Aivia M8600 Wireless Macro Gaming Mouse

GIGABYTE, a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, is proud to extend its Aivia peripheral series with M8600 Wireless Macro Gaming Mouse. The first product from GIGABYTE’s highly anticipated Aivia series, Aivia K8100 Gaming Keyboard, has recently received prestigious red dot design award.

Aivia - Advanced, Intuitive, and Versatile Interface Archetype
Adding to the already popular gaming device, GIGABYTE first announced its brand new Aivia product line at 2010 Computex.

It joins the ranks of other hybrid mice like the Razer Mamba & my Microsoft Sidewinder X8.
LOL, it looks like a tyre tread on the mousewheel to direct sweat away and prevent aqua planing, LOL!

I can see it now... playing an online FPs and "... oh hang on guys gotta re-load my mouse. (5 sec later) K back."

looks like a pretty sweet mouse. would be perfect for those with both a gaming desktop and a gaming laptop... leave the cable for you desktop and use the batteries for on the go (leaving the rf module on the laptop)

this may be my next mouse
