Wireless Intellimouse Explorer

Anyone have this model?I saw the Wireless Intellimouse Explorer with Tilt Wheel Black Leather and it feels great but I have not bought it yet.I am still using the wired Intellimouse Explorer and thought of getting wireless for my laptop.
Wanted to know if this thing works as good as it is priced.And what the difference between this model and the Bluetooth version

The Bluetooth version doesn't have the tilt wheel nor does it have a smooth scrolling wheel; it clicks. I don't know why.... You'd think Microsoft's flagship mouse would sport Bluetooth, not old school RF.

I have the Bluetooth desktop, and this really irks me. It's still the best desktop out there though.

What exactly is the tilt wheel? Is it different than the scroll wheel? If so, how?

1) The biggest feature is that is tilts from side-to-side in addition to scrolling up and down. It allows you to scroll left and right as well as up and down. With the traditional wheel, you have to click the wheel and use the mouse to pan.

2) No more clicking. The scrolling is completely smooth.

The smooth scroll wheel is a surprisingly pleasant experience.

At first I thought the tilt wheel would be completely worthless - really, how much horizontal scrolling do you ever do? But in fact, I probably use it about once a day - scrolling an over-wide text file in Notepad, or an Excel spreadsheet, or some Visual Studio code... it's nice having it there, to be sure.

Product page for Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer for Bluetooth from Microsoft

Amazon is taking pre-orders for it at their site for about $68.
