Summary: Long story short, I emailed tech support (it exists, webkennection) and I was set up with the "MS Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 V2," my TS Agent Mahesh noting that the WLM 5000 is discontinued.
Pros: Pretty much everything you could expect from a mouse. It felt good in your hand. The tracking was smooth and precise. It hadeprogrammable buttons, and a good Windows 7 Device Stage page. Overall a good mouse.

Cons: The wheel button sometimes gets stuck and you can find yourself getting out of of your mousepad. The left and right side button can be a bit annoying when trying to click them.
