Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from Kensington Technology Group

    SAN MATEO, Calif., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- It has arrived:  a track ball
 that re-defines the standard of high-end Mac input devices. Fully loaded with
 easy to use features and compatible with the new Mac OS X. It was designed by
 Kensington(R) Technology Group specifically for Mac power users who desire
 nothing less than maximum performance. With the Turbo Mouse(R) Pro trackball,
 Kensington raises the bar on Mac input devices.

     With powerful new customization features, Turbo Mouse Pro allows users to
 dramatically enhance the performance of their Macs. Six Direct Launch(TM)
 buttons can be pre-set to instantly access favorite web sites or launch
 important applications. Four large programmable mouse buttons streamline
 repetitive tasks with single-click productivity and an integrated scroll wheel
 lets users move quickly through long documents or web pages.
     Turbo Mouse(R) Pro's superior design provides maximum power with minimal
 effort in a stylish device. A large trackball allows for easier fingertip
 control and steel bearings provide remarkable precision. Oversized buttons are
 easy to reach and equally accessible for both left- and right-hand users and
 the color scheme complements the popular iMac line. Easy connectivity with USB
 and award-winning MouseWorks(R) software allow users to plug in, customize
 their own features and get started.
     "This trackball is an excellent example of Kensington's commitment to the
 Mac user," says Ian Lombard, Senior Product Manager, Kensington Technology
 Group. "It's probably the most versatile trackball on the market today for Mac
 users. I don't know of any other input device that comes close in
 functionality, performance and quality."
     For over seventeen years Kensington has been the leading manufacturer of
 peripheral products for Mac users. Turbo Mouse Pro continues this commitment
 and is bundled with the latest version of MouseWorks(R) software, making it
 compatible with Mac OS X.
     "The Macintosh platform offers users incredible power and ease of use even
 for the most demanding tasks," said Linda McNulty, Apple's director of Desktop
 Product Marketing. "Kensington's new input device lets users expand and
 customize the power of the Mac desktop while keeping it simple."
     The flagship Turbo Mouse Pro builds on the success of the Turbo Mouse(R)
 Trackball line of Mac input devices. Kensington has received over 25 awards
 for its input devices, which include the highly acclaimed Expert Mouse(R) and
 Expert Mouse(R) Pro, the TurboRing(TM), TurboBall(TM), and Orbit(R)
 Trackballs.
     Turbo Mouse Pro can be purchased at major computer retailers and office
 supply stores, through computer mail order or direct from Kensington at
 www.kensington.com. The Turbo Mouse Pro's estimated retail price is listed at
 $109.99. It is backed by a Kensington satisfaction guarantee, which features a
