If you want a solid, ergonomic mouse for extended use, you should probably look elsewhere. However, if you’re looking for a portable mouse with a full-size feel and a head-turning design, the Arc Touch might be your rodent. quote

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 ...

If you’re not too concerned with ergonomics and just want a compact and unique mouse to always have with you, the Arc Mouse Touch is a solid choice. If, however, you really rely on your mobile mouse as a serious input device, you should find something more suited to your purpose.

Despite its travel-friendly credentials, the gadget may be a little too dainty for some. It's also a little on the pricey side, but if you're looking for an external mouse to use on the move then this is a solid option.

It is truly difficult to find a reason to not recommend this product. The Arc Touch is a great combination of design, features, performance, and functionality. If you are at all in the market for your next great wireless mouse, then you should definitely give the Arc Touch a closer look.

MS Arc Touch mouse would not be my first choice for a PC; and it certainly will not be replacing any of my main rig's "go to" mice. To be perfectly blunt, this mouse has easily best in class ergonomics for a ultra portable mouse, but compared to a true "full size" mouse it does fail to compete.

About Feb 23, 2011

In the same class as the Arc Keyboard - fun to use and cool to look at, but not recommended for regular office use. The BlueTrack technology means it would be a nice addition to kitchen netbook or laptop setup, although the high price tag makes it difficult to justify for occasional use.

There's a very simple reason I bought this mouse. Not, though it does, because the shape or the deployment folding intrigued me. Not, though it does actually track quite effectively and at a reasonable speed, for the Bluetrack. Not, though it does actually work kind of well, for the touch...

I needed a mouse to accompany my MacBook Air. I was thinking about getting a Magic Mouse just because of its compatibility with the laptop and its gesture abilities. I didn't want to spend $70 though, so I decided to go with the Arc Touch. I'm very pleased with my purchase. I haven't had issues...

While it lacks many of the almost standard features that most new mice in this price range have (a back button, rechargable batteries) the Arc Touch mouse is a uniquely styled mouse that looks great on a desk and is incredibly portable. The biggest flaw is the choice of wireless technology....

I purchased this mouse for my wife and I am extremely satisfied with it. The design and portability of the mouse is excellent. It's cool to flatten it out and it fits well within her purse or laptop case. It tracks incredibly well. The downside is it's not as comfortable as a desktop mouse,...

I couldn't wait for this mouse when it first came out. For the first week it was great to use because there was no mouse like this before in the mass market. Microsoft has definitely pushed the boundaries in design with this one. But when you get pass the elegant form, function follows and it is...

Got this mouse with the companion keyboard and it makes a great set for the media center configured computer I have hooked up to my TV.

Great, portable mouse. Quickly folds down to store in a bag, pops back up to use and fits naturally into your hand. Works on a wide variety of surfaces. Scroll bar gives nice feedback.

forget those mini portable mice things...this is the ultimate portable mouse with blue track technology and haptic scroll wheel. can get uncomfortable if used for long periods but as a travel mouse, it's second to none
