    DPI = Dots Per Inch

    How it relates to mice: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mouse_(computing)#Mouse_speed

    Your link also references it:
    Basically the higher the value the more sensitive or precise the movement is, or at least should be.

    You'd have to look up the model on the internet.
