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.
Logitech Cube ( Black)
Logitech is relying on appealing look of its unique Cube Mouse to justify its price, but it should offer a few more useful navigation or presentation features.
HP X7000 Touch Mouse with Wi-Fi ( Black)
The HP X7000 Wi-Fi Touch Mouse frees up USB ports by pairing through a wireless adapter, but its hypersensitive touch dial and accident-prone design make it frustrating to use.
Microsoft Touch Mouse ( Black)
We like the Microsoft Touch Mouse for its thoughtful, complementary gestures that simplify the experience of moving in and around Windows 7 applications.
Logitech Couch M515 Mouse ( Black)
Not everyone needs a living-room mouse, but for those who do, the Logitech Couch Mouse M515 provides a well-thought-out option, and for a reasonable price.

Mad Catz Cyborg R.A.T. 3 Gaming Mouse
The Mad Catz Cyborg R.A.T. 9 is the most expensive gaming mouse we know of, but its vast customizability, unique features, and strong performance make it a worthwhile expense for demanding PC gamers.
Gyration Rechargeable Wireless Air Mouse Elite ( Black)
The latest Gyration Air Mouse Elite is a welcome relief from "mouse arm" and works well as a presentation device for intermittent use, but it lacks the flair of other pointing solutions. You'll certainly find satisfaction in the Gyration Air Mouse Elite if you're just getting into the gyroscopic market, but if you want the best of the best, we recommend spending more on the Logitech MX Air.
Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse ( Black)
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.
Razer Orochi Elite Mobile Gaming Mouse
The Orochi, Razer's first gaming mouse designed for notebooks, combines a small size and Bluetooth connectivity with a feature set normally seen only on larger gaming mice.
Apple Magic Mouse
Apple's new wireless Magic Mouse gets a sleek makeover and even has multitouch controls, but it's better as a portable laptop companion rather than a full-size desktop accessory. The swiping gestures add interactivity to Web browsing and media, but the awkwardly narrow single button design leaves us reaching for better mice from Logitech and others.
