Computer America and CompUSA have teamed up to provide two people with some of the hottest mice on the planet!
Craig Crossman announced on May 1st that two lucky people will win a Gold and Diamond encrusted X54 Mogo Media Mouse. This is the awesome new mouse that conveniently stores inside your Express Card slot on your notebook and is always ready for use by just flipping down it’s “kick stand.”

For reference, a 320GB hard drive can hold over half a million high resolution pictures.” [quotes from Associated Content]
