oh.. this is bad news. yes, this is the best mouse ever (well, in 99% of cases anyways - i also have the mx1000 and mx air). why would they discontinue it coz i cannot see anything else in their product line to replace it.

to the op: where are you located? have you found one yet?

I don't know why G7 is being discontinued. The G9 is one ugly mouse compared to the MX518, G5, G7 and even the G3.

I prefer the aesthetics of the G9 as opposed to the G5 /shrugs.
Perhaps the G7 line just wasn't selling as much anymore, or perhaps it's not as profitable.

Well, I'm pretty sure I saw a couple at Hardly Normal's the other day, so if you still want one Kommando, send me a PM.

(As I'll be unlikely to check this thread again)

Your just bias against wireless mice.

Those were honest reasons why it might have been pulled =P
Sure, I think it's crap, but wireless mice cost more to make than wired mice, and most people I know buy wired mice /shrugs

If they discontinued the z5500's it wouldn't be a major loss, they're pretty average speakers.

I'm pretty sure the JB in Canberra city has some..

I've used a bunch of mice in the last couple of years; MX1000, MX510, MS Bluetooth thing, old logitech wireless thing... none compare to my G9... it rules them all with it's "icky cord" and all :D

+1 to G7 fandom. Best $$ I ever spent on this PC.

Good luck with your hunt!

Maybe it's just like the rest of business in the world, you develop new products for customers...

They will bring out another wireless mouse to replace this one, and it will be better Im sure!

So Dave all Im saying is don't knock this mouse till you try it, it's not like other wireless mice.

oh man, altec lansing make absolutely awesome speakers.

i wonder how these compare to the z5500.. i was originally going to get the altec lansing speakers (older version of these from the look of it) but for my personal taste, they couldnt match the z5500

sorry to ruin your sarcasm sceptre but umart has been out of stock for sometime, i do not live near msy (not that i would ever buy from them) and all those other places are like dodgy brother ghetto shops

I meant like an reputable store.
