Logitech Unveils Clip-and-Go V550 Nano Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks

Many people prefer a mouse to a touchpad but often leave the mouse behind when moving from room to room. Logitech is about to change all that with the introduction of the Logitech V550 Nano cordless laser mouse for notebooks, featuring the Clip-and-Go dock. The unobtrusive dock lets you conveniently clip the V550 mouse to your laptop – and go.


“Logitech research revealed that the vast majority of people who use a notebook PC are mobile both within and outside the home,” said Rory Dooley, Logitech senior vice president and general manager of the Control Devices business unit. “To meet the demands associated with increased mobility, the V550 mouse offers a complete set of features to make it easier to use a mouse with a notebook when moving from the kitchen to the living room or from one’s desk to a meeting. Now, you won’t have to choose between grabbing your mouse or a cup of coffee.”

Always ready for use, the V550 Nano also features the Plug-and-Forget Nano-receiver – it’s so small that once it’s plugged into your computer, you can forget about it. The Nano-receiver stays nearly flush against the side of the computer (protruding just 8 mm), so it doesn’t have to be unplugged when you stow your laptop.

With increased mobility comes increased concern about battery life. You don’t want to be caught out and about with a mouse that’s run out of power. The new V550 mouse offers up to 18 months of battery life and is the only Logitech cordless laser mouse currently offering this extended level of use. Plus, the V550 Nano saves additional power by automatically turning off when it’s docked or when the Nano-receiver is stored inside the mouse.

To enhance your productivity, the V550 mouse’s scroll wheel can spin freely to let you move quickly through long documents and Web pages. Or, by pressing down on the wheel, you can switch to click-to-click scrolling mode and scroll precisely through lists, slides or photos. In addition, the button directly below the scroll wheel allows you to switch between applications (after installing software available at no additional charge from www.logitech.com/downloads).

Because you often use your notebook in busy wireless environments, Logitech’s advanced 2.4 GHz wireless technology provides a powerful, reliable signal that effectively eliminates delays and dropouts. With its exceptionally robust signal, which exchanges data between the receiver and the mouse 300 times faster than conventional 27 MHz wireless technologies for cordless mice, Logitech’s advanced 2.4 GHz wireless technology dramatically reduces interference.

The V550 Nano is offered in two colors – gray with silver accents and silver with cool-blue accents. And with the purchase of the new Logitech mouse, you’ll receive two Clip-and-Go docks – one silver, one black. An included setup kit makes it easy to install the dock, and to remove it, if necessary.

The new Logitech mouse is compatible with both PC and Mac computers, and the Clip-and-Go dock is compatible with all notebook styles. For more information, visit www.logitech.com.

Pricing and Availability
The Logitech V550 Nano cordless laser mouse for notebooks is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in late August. The suggested retail price in the U.S. is $59.99.Source: Logitech

You know what I love? The size of that USB receiver. That's what I've been waiting for in a wireless mouse for a long time -- I can't stand big ridiculous receivers hanging off of a laptop, waiting to be snapped off when you move it. :shadedshu

"Logitech research revealed that the vast majority of people who use a notebook PC are mobile both within and outside the home,"
^ That is like saying "Stalkertech research revealed that the vast majority of people actually shit in a toilet, both within & outside the home"

- then releasing a 'remote' that is compatible with Any toilet or portaloo which has just 1 button on it that says 'FLUSH'

no more reaching behind you to yank the crank to send your shit the way of elvis.....


what a useless feature - grab the mouse - stick it in your pocket = absolutely FREE.

& before u start moaning about the size of the mouse - both M$ & Logitech make compact mouses for laptops.


your pocket aint gonna charge you rent for sticking your mouse in there for a min while u powerslide down the stairs on your laptop.



there comes a point in almost every companies life that has done well where they will have plenty of money & nothing to do....

Second that on the G5

As long as the clip stays on the laptop it should probably be fine. Wonder if they are using a magnet to help keep it secure. The clip is metal.
18 months . . . now my 20 day MX1000 seems sooo obsolete, lol.
