Microsoft’s feather-light Arc Touch Bluetooth Mouse is not your average pointing device.

Touchpads and touchscreens are great, but sometimes you just need the ultimate precision of a mouse. Microsoft has always made great computer mice. The Microsoft Mouse has never tried to pretend to be a fashion computing accessory. Modern portable computing is all about compactness. I was recently looking for a new portable wireless mouse, and I came across the Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse. The touch strip responds precisely to the speed of your finger movement, using haptic feedback to scroll vertically.

Great little portable device, easy to store and easy to use while on the go. Microsoft ARC Wireless Mouse works great with chomebook 15 July Wanted something handy for chromebook use, this works perfectly, stows away easily flattens and works well on all surfaces Wanted something handy for chromebook use, this works perfectly, stows away easily flattens and works well on all surfaces. Fantastic 29 April Excellent mouse for mobile devices, the fold flat is great.

Touch scroll is a little twitchy, but a great mouse overall Excellent mouse for mobile devices, the fold flat is great. Touch scroll is a little twitchy, but a great mouse overall. Right click doesn't work as expected 9 July The mouse is great in almost every way. The only issue with it is that you have to lift your 'left click' finger when you right click, otherwise the right click registers as a left click. I'm a right hander, so not sure if this issue will persist or be reversed for a left handed setting.

Love it, feels great and when you flatten it out it turns off. Jake N. Good at what it's good at 20 May Not that ergonomically great when compared to most mice, it does have several things going for it. The battery life seems great, it tracks well on every surface I've used it on, and it just slips into the bag and doesn't take up much room where space is already at a premium. Not awesomely cheap though. Not that ergonomically great when compared to most mice, it does have several things going for it.

The motherboard we agreed would suit me best wasn't in stock so Mark arranged for all 3 items to be delivered to me at work. This was all on Sunday, on Wednesday I received a follow-up email from Mark, checking in to make sure I had received everything and was not having any issues, unfortunately I was having a minor issue, so I popped back into the store today and he sorted it all out for me. Thanks, Jarred. Modem of on tech and had an issues setting it up gave the tech support a ring and they were awesome would not hesitate to recommend them".

I have gone through the website and selected few before i entered there. The first sales person helped me to reduce those to three laptops by providing much needed updated information. I want to emphasize one thing about your store that no any sales person are putting extra pressure to buy but sharing their expert knowledge which might help customers to choose the right product.

That is one of the reasons i passed through all the Tech stores in the town and come to your store. All the best team, looking forward to experience the same or even better service in future. Best regards, Iranga Ranasinghe". Got me exactly what I needed, at the price point I wanted. Even after I made it hard for him to meet my needs. One of the Friendliest staff I've dealt with anywhere!!! Mark was very helpful with advice and also extremely knowledgeable about the different parts and specs etc.

Microsoft Arc Mouse: Not just for the Surface book......

He assisted my son with decisions and then also ensured we were looked after very well all the way through the technical department for the rebuild right up to loading everything into my car when I collected it all. Well done PBTech and Mark for such amazing customer service. It is a rare thing these days! We will be back.

Was greeted by Jonny Greenless and told him my brother and I had came problem no internet in one room. I found Jonny to be well informed pleasant and forthright with great advise to solve our problem. You power it up by curling, or arcing hence the word arc in the name , the tail end of the device downward, thereby shortening its length and increasing its height.

When arced, it fits the curvature of your palm and fingers, similar to any standard small travel mouse. The arc increases the height to just over two inches and shortens the length by about an inch or so, which brings its dimensions more in line with competing products. Up front, where the controls are located, the Arc Touch mouse is encased in hard gray plastic, and the back end, the part that arcs, is coated with a slightly darker gray rubber-like material.

The controls consist of left and right buttons separated by a plastic strip that acts like a depressible scroll wheel, and, as with most mice, you can change the behavior of the buttons and wheel, as well as alter the scroll speed, pointer, and so on, from an app you can download from Windows Store.

While the mouse itself will pair with MacOS It will not work with any Android device. As mentioned, you bend the Arc Touch mouse to turn it on. A small blue status LED on the underside indicates when its running and ready to pair. You pair it as you would most Bluetooth pointing devices, by pressing and holding a small button also on the underside for a few seconds to make it discoverable. It paired with both our Windows tablet and MacBook immediately, without any fuss. Many competing mice, including the Logitech M Bluetooth Mouse, come with often proprietary Bluetooth dongles that enable use on machines without Bluetooth built-in.

With the Arc Touch mouse, your computing device must already have Bluetooth available. In other words, it takes a little getting used to. It was easier to move around, and to press and hold buttons, when we used it on a bare desktop, rather than a soft mouse pad. When holding a button down, the pressure dug into the mouse pad, making mouse movement a bit difficult. As mentioned, you can reconfigure the buttons and other behavior from the downloadable app. Using the tap function was difficult to master.

Despite its odd appearance and unorthodox configuration, though, after spending a little time with it, we found the Arc Touch mouse comfortable and efficient to use. The Arc Touch mouse is powered by two included AAA batteries housed in a compartment on the underside of the non-arcing portion of the device.

Microsoft says that with regular use you should get about six months from a set of batteries.
