Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse ( Black)
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.

Microsoft Explorer Mouse
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.
Targus AMW43US Wireless Mouse for Mac
Targus' new Wireless Mouse for Mac replaces the scroll wheels and trackballs found on other mice with a clever optical sensor. It takes some getting used to, but is great for four-way scrolling.
Microsoft Arc Mouse ( Red)
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.
Logitech V550 Nano Cordless Laser Mouse ( gray)
Logitech's new V550 Nano laptop mouse adds a unique "clip and go" dock that lets you clip the mouse to your laptop's lid, but we're not sure it's a feature anyone has been clamoring for.
Macally Turtle Portable Retractable USB Mouse
Macally's otherwise unremarkable Turtle laptop mouse at least has the good sense to keep its USB cable out of sight, thanks to a retractable cord.

Evoluent VerticalMouse 2 ( left-handed)
The Evoluent Left-Handed Vertical Mouse is worth a try for southpaws suffering from RSI-related pain. We just wish it were designed a little better.
Microsoft Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse 7000
A little bit bigger and the Microsoft Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse 7000 could be a regular desktop mouse, which makes it easy to use, but not the best for easy traveling.
