The Sculpt Mobile Mouse from Microsoft is an affordable option for those seeking a mouse to leave in their travel bag when a touchscreen or trackpad just won't cut it. ThinkDigit finds the mouse "compact" and its design "good." However, PC World finds the mouse a bit too small, saying "if you have large hands: your palm will drag." Unlike our current Must-have the Anywhere Mouse MX, the Sculpt Mobile Mouse doesn't offer a lot of configuration options or buttons other than a single "Start" button, but it can compete accuracy-wise thanks to Microsoft's BlueTrack technology. Laptop Magazine tested it out on their "desk, on top of a pad of paper, and even on fabric," finding it smooth and accurate. The Sculpt Mobile Mouse is a no-frills portable mouse for those who just need something cheap. If you're in need of something with a little more configuration options, we recommend the Anywhere Mouse MX instead.

Though there are plenty of ways to access the Windows 8 Start Screen using just one action, the Microsoft Sculpt Mobile Mouse provides a compelling option for users who don't want to teach for the keyboard or screen.

This mouse is a good candidate for frequent travelers, but the single-function Windows button isn’t a compelling reason to upgrade.

Travelers or students using Windows 8 on a non-touch laptop will appreciate the compact Sculpt Mobile Mouse. Its center button helps make up for Win 8's lack of a Start menu button.

The build is good, the performance is great and the only con is the placement of the Windows button and the fact that the top is a fingerprint magnet. If you are looking to invest in a utility mouse for long-term use you can consider this device but not for gaming, though.

The Sculpt Mobile Mouse sports a simple Start button adjacent to its wheel that will open the Start menu in Windows 7 or the Start screen in Windows 8. It's wireless and uses a small USB transceiver.
