Looking to add a little style to your home or work office environment? If so, you may find something that tickles your fancy from Microsoft's latest batch of limited edition Artist Series mice. Microsoft said it tapped some of the best artists from the around the world to use its Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 as a canvas to bring their designs to life, and they responded with seven custom pieces of art.

Featured artists this time around include Dana McClure, Deanne Cheuk, Kustaa Saksi, Matt Lyon, Joy Deangdeelert Cho, Si Scott, and Liu Qing, each of which brought a decidedly unique design to the desktop. Saksi, for example, went with a liquid landscape motif, while Lyon made use of various shapes and patterns.

"These Artist Series mice bring an array of choices and are perfect for those who want to add some color and flash to their mobile computing setup," Microsoft told Maximum PC in an email.

Whether you like the designs or not, Microsoft deserves kudos for leaving the MSRP intact. There's no pricing premium attached to the Artist Series SKUs; they run $30 each , same as a standard Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500.
