It may be hard to determine that, even ACER doesn't list in on their site or in their Search. The few sites I looked at that mentioned it did not give that information. The UK version of Amazon showed the mouse as unavailable.

Well dang.. considering i got this mouse that came with my computer from walmart. (Was already in the box that the computer came in) nothing tells me the DPI of this mouse. it's really irritating me that i dont know the DPI of my mouse so i can't figure out what mouse setting in control panel will give me perfect 1 to 1 pixel-pixel accuracy.

I use a Microsoft Optical Blue Mouse and there's no settings in Control Panel, Mouse for DPI. But then it is an older mouse. It might be the Acceleration or pointer speed setting that is involved.

Part of a review from Microsoft Optical Mouse Blue Review, may apply to other mice:
Quote:
What is acceleration? Originally this concept referred to the mouse pointer: it could have a different speed relative to the mouse's one. For example, if you slowly move a mouse by 1 cm, the mouse pointer runs one cm, if you do it quickly, it runs 5 cm. The first scrolling mice had the constant scrolling speed. It said that one step scrolled three lines. Ten steps moved the pointer by 30 lines, irrespective of how fast you turned the wheel. Now the faster you turn it, the speedier the pointer moves. In the box you can set the acceleration degree. Is acceleration needed at all? On one hand, PgUp/PgDn are still there But why to jump constantly from a mouse to a keyboard and back? You can ignore this function if you don't need it. At least, it doesn't make worse.

I have never heard of mouse DPI settings as requested by realflo100. It is actually the sensitivity of the mouse pointer & it is usually adjustable either in Control Panel under Mouse or with your actual mouse software if installed.
This MS website might help.
