SteelSeries, a favorite brand among the PC Gaming world, has expanded upon their Pro Grade lineup with the addition of the Sensei Laser Mouse.

The Sensei features a 32bit ARM Processor as fast as the original Intel Pentium Processor (albeit at 75mhz, but let’s admit, it’s in a mouse!)

According to the specifications, the Sensei is capable of delivering up to 11,400 counts per inch (typically incorrectly called dots per inch).

SteelSeries is touting this as the most customizable mouse currently in production, though editorial note here, I’m noticing a peculiar lack of weight customization.  As noted in my Bro Cave article from Friday, I use a Logitech G500 and add all 6 of the 4.5g weights provided.  Personally I like a mouse with a lot of mass.

No word yet on pricing or availability, but you can request to be notified when it is available from the SteelSeries site.

UPDATE: I stand corrected, RoryGreen provided the information in our comments section – The mouse is set to be released in September 2011 at a price of $89.99/€89.99.

    >When I think of custimizable mice I think of the R.A.T series. I have a Rat 7 (http://cyborggaming.com/prod/rat7.htm) which as far as how it fits you hand seems to me to be a lot more customizable. Sure this mouse gives you the ability to change a lcd display and some colors but I wouldn't call it the most customizable.

    TBH I'll be surprised if anyone uses the mouse at the full 11,400 for gaming, I still don't use the full 5,800dpi that the R.A.T. 7 gives me though I'm working towards that. I'm in the high 4,000's now and the speed can still throw off my game at times.

    I do like the control of "path correction" that this mouse gives. I can see that being very useful.

    >Wow, the RAT 7 is pretty intense. How comfortable would you say that is held in hand?

    >The mouse is set to be released in September 2011 at a price of $89.99/€89.99. (It weighs 102g, just slightly heavier than the Xai, their previous top of the range mouse)

    >The R.A.T 7 is amazing. It fits my hand perfectly. I don't have overly large hands but I've always felt that most mice were too narrow or too short. I currently have the thumb rest fully extended so that my hand is spread out pretty far, the pinki section is all the way tight and I've adjusted the length of the mouse so that the three thumb buttons are perfectly proportioned.

    I would absolutely recommend it for anyone who's looking for a comfortable and customizable gaming mouse.

    Basically if you put your hand on your desk with only your finger tips touching, you can get the R.A.T. series to fit exactly into that space. Then you can customize how much it weighs. I absolutely love the mouse. And now I sound like a sales pitch so I'm going to stop now :P
