Pros:Cheap, very easy to use.
The Bottom Line: Buy it, you won't regret it!!! This is the best mouse that I have ever purchased.
The reason I bought this product is because I have a HP pavilion dv7, and like many laptops and notebooks they have a mouse pad. I was never one for the little touch pads that are located on the center console of a laptop. So, I went looking for a mouse at my local Best Buy store. I tried to find one for my laptop that was not bulky. The one that I was looking for needed to be wireless, sleek, portable, and durable.

This device weighs approximately 3.1 ounces and is 5" from the top to the bottom while lying flat. It is 2-3/16" wide and 1/2" at the thickest point. The palm part of this device is rubber coated and has a built in magnet in it. This part is flexible and will act as a turn on and off point. the reason for the magnet is to hold the USB adapter while it is in transportation. I only saw one model and it was in black.
So, you are probably wondering, was this the first mouse that I ever purchased, and the answer to that is no, it was the second one. The first one was, a South Park one, that stopped working 24 hours later. The good thing about this new mouse was that it was very simple to start to learn to use, and anyone could do it. This "Microsoft Arc Touch" mouse has a saying on the box that, says it all, " it is curved for comfort and flatten to pack". That was the first thing that caught my eye, hey it was what I was looking for. Mind you though, Best Buy seems to always to be on top of the next big electronic breakthrough in the market today.
This product from Microsoft, takes 2 AAA batteries, which also comes included. It uses a USB wireless adapter that is connected into any USB slot on any laptop, desktop pc, netbook or any computer devise that you may have. When the computer recognizes your new mouse, then you will need to bend the mouse. Then you will see a blue light, and that is the laser which helps you operate the device. As soon as that is done, a tutorial instruction will pop up on your computer screen and teach you how to use the mouse. This mouse also uses a sensor touch scroll scrolling mechanism, that is built-in in the front part of the mouse, this is something I have not seen on any other mouse.
You know, for what it cost to purchase this mouse, it is very reasonable. I bought mine for fifty bucks at Best Buy and could not be happier with it. You can find other cheaper ones, but I don't think that you would be as happy with it as I am with this one. I would highly recommend any one that needs one of these to seek it out and give it a try. This mouse has a two year warranty and you usually can just take it back to Best Buy and exchange it, or get your money back.
