My review sample mouse is blue but if that's not the look you're after, there are a wide variety of colors and patterns are available. Some careful shopping online can get you this mouse for a reasonable $25 US.
The packaging is compact and styled with feminine accents throughout. The product inside is visible, which is good for potential buyers. I know I like to see what I get before I buy it.
Out of the box we have the optical mouse, receiver, AAA batteries, instruction manual, and a travel pouch. I like the inclusion of the travel pouch since this mouse is designed for use with laptops which frequently accompany us to work, school, on vacation, or any combination of the three.
