Executives dying for an ultraportable mouse to go with their Windows 8 or Android tablet will find a beautiful companion in the Wedge Touch Mouse, but it's a lot to pay for a pretty basic set of functions.
We like the Microsoft Touch Mouse for its thoughtful, complementary gestures that simplify the experience of moving in and around Windows 7 applications.
Microsoft's new Arc Touch Mouse features a travel-friendly design and some clever technical additions to its touch-sensitive scroll tab. Neither of those features makes it better than a full-size desktop mouse, but 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.
Microsoft's Arc mouse is almost as functional as its form is pleasing. The travel-friendly features make perfect sense, and in general, it's a serviceable mouse for Macs and PCs. Only a few minor design issues hold it back.
The Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 doesn't leave much room for complaint. Some will balk at the $40 price tag, but this mobile traveler fits comfortably in your hand and it can mouse on almost any surface, thanks to Microsoft's innovative Bluetrack technology. With a small footprint and a variety of stylish colors to choose from, this mouse makes a useful (and worthy) addition to your mobile arsenal.
Microsoft's SideWinder X8 isn't the only mouse that can swap seamlessly between wired and wireless modes; however, between its BlueTrack sensor and its on-the-fly macro recording capability--not to mention a competitive price--we imagine few PC gamers won't want to get their hands on it.
The Explorer Mini mouse features Microsoft's new BlueTrack sensor technology, which makes for smooth scrolling across almost any surface. Travelers listen up: unless you're left-handed, we're sure you'll appreciate its portability, ease of use, and innovative design.
The Microsoft Explorer Mouse deserves your attention for its BlueTrack sensor technology that lets you use it on surfaces where other mice fail. Laptop owners, or anyone else who uses a nondeskbound computer, will benefit from Microsoft's innovative new technology.
Though it may not offer much relief from clinical repetitive stress injuries, the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Desktop 7000 will satisfy users who want a slightly more comfortable keyboard and mouse than the one that came with their computer.
The Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 isn't cheap, but if you want to go wireless and have an extra $70 lying around, this mouse is certainly an option. If you're going to spend that much, though, we think you'll like Logitech's high-end offering better.
