PC/Laptop Accessories: Microsoft Arc Laptop Mouse - I love this little guy.

Dec 31, 2009
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Portable, comfortable, precise, convenient.

Cons:Packaging a little hard to get into.

The Bottom Line: I have 0 complaints with this mouse, I am thrilled with how it's performed so far and would suggest it to any laptop user.


I am on the road quite a bit, and sometimes have to work remotely via Laptop. I can't stand the touch pad on most laptops, as I find it inefficient and best, and a nuisance most of the time. It works in a pinch, but for any lengthy/precise work, nothing beats a good old fashioned mouse.

For a while, I had a cheap Targus laptop mouse - which was adequate, it was functional, but wasn't super comfortable or durable, as evidenced by its disintegration earlier this year. I found the Microsoft Arc mouse on sale while doing Christmas shopping, and I decided to pick it up as a stocking stuffer for myself.

Other than the packaging being hard to bust into, I have loved every moment of it so far. The mouse is PC and Mac compatible, and works fine with XP/Vista - I haven't tried it with Windows 7, but nothing I've read leads me to believe there's a problem.

The mouse is small - thin, and lightweight. It folds almost in half for easy storage and portability, and even the USB dongle is magnetic and fits underneath the fold of the mouse (love it). The bag the mouse fits in is also convenient and self closes, and is easy to open and use.

The precision and response is about as good as any non high end mouse that I've used - It features a comfortable scroll wheel as well. The default sensitivty was a little high for my tastes, but that was an easy adjustment to make.

The Arc mouse comes with no software, it auto-installs, and little to no documentation. It's a mouse, you should pretty much know what to expect. And with the Arc, you can expect performance, portability, and comfort. I am 100% thrilled with it.

Note that I am reviewing the item pictured here, the black and great model. The Arc is also available in a variety of colors and glossier finishes for the more fashion conscious laptop users (I'm talking to you, Mac people) out there. The regular price for the mouse is about $40, but you can find it for $30 or less if you look hard enough. Well worth it for the regular laptop user looking for a new mouse.
