1:B (I'm guessing the 3 is inc a scroll-wheel)

2:C - MUST be adjustable easily on the fly (not on the bottom of the mouse)

3:A or b as long as it's accurate

4:C - Works with standard drivers but comes with customizable software

5:B

6:A

7:A - only if it helps with features such as DPI adjustment

I`m guessing they`re stuck on it being a traditional mouse idea and not a trackball-esq design ?
