Review: Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse

The Arc Touch Mouse is different enough in its form and in some of its functions that it should appeal to people looking to make a statement with their technology.

Given the leaks trickling out all summer, we weren't too surprised to hear from Microsoft about its new convertible, touch-sensitive mouse a few weeks ago. And indeed, the Arc Touch Mouse looks and behaves pretty much as expected. The convertible design lets you pack the mouse flat in your laptop bag. The touch capability is limited to a scrolling strip that runs down the middle.


You can read our full review of the Arc Touch Mouse here. Mostly it's a novelty product for those willing to spend around $70, but the touch strip has some interesting features (haptic feedback, for example) that we wouldn't be surprised to find in future Microsoft hardware products.
