Microsoft Arc Mouse
Released September, 2008
The Pros:Transmitter is stored via magnetic clip on mouse. Battery life is good. Solid feel.
The Cons:High price point for what it is. The thumb button is near the front of the mouse, far out of reach of the average hand. There are only 4 buttons in total: left, right, middle (wheel), and the distant thumb button.
The Microsoft Arc is a mid-grade cordless laser mouse designed to provide users with a more portable and better performing desktop mouse. The Arc can be used both at home on a desktop computer or on the go with a laptop.
