Conclusion: The Performance of the Arc Touch was very good. The range of the 2.4Ghz allows for use with HTPC systems, or systems that you may have tucked out of site. The BlueTrack laser provides great cursor accuracy, even on non-traditional surfaces such as carpet or couches. The Appearance of the Arc Touch is one of its biggest attributes. The Arc in its name implies its shape.
Pros: Very Attractive Design, BlueTrak Laser Technology, 2.4Ghz Wireless Technology, Good Battery Life (6 months), Touch-strip is a fun replacement of the scroll-wheel, Ambidexterous Design, Bendable On/Off Feature and Indicator, Very lightweight and portable
Cons: Expensive price, Touch-Strip can be a bit finicky
Like the Apple Magic Mouse, Microsoft has added touch sensitivity to this mouse, along with haptic vibration feedback and a curiously arched construction

Summary: Portable, practical, good at its job and more desirable than a PC peripheral has any right to be, Microsoft's Arc Touch is a superb wireless mouse. Yes, it's expensive - not to mention a little unconventional for some tastes. But we reckon well-heeled businessmen and laptop-toting road warriors could do a lot worse.
Pros: High-accuracy tracking, works on almost any surface
Conclusion: I think this mouse is a great addition for a mobile or desktop user. It is compact, and small enough to be easily placed in a laptop bag, but the mouse is still full size for every-day desktop use. The design alone is worth the investment, I think. Some people say that the mouse is a little stiff, or the buttons are too hard to click, but I didn't notice any problems using it. I think it would have been nice to include a little travel sleeve or something.
TEST: Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse Surface Edition - Enda smartere til bærbarveska
28 March 2014
Excerpt: Det er omtrent tre år siden vi testet det som siden da har vært vår absolutte favorittmus å putte ned i bærbarveska. Felles for typiske bærbarmus er at de er små minikopier av vanlige mus og at de som oftest er trådløse. Det gjør dem enkle og greie å ha med seg i en trang bærbarveske.
Conclusion: Como casi todos los periféricos desarrollados por los chicos de Redmond, el Arc Touch es un producto de notables prestaciones , muy por encima de la media. Su esqueleto interno, el sistema de posicionamiento Blutrack y su apuesta por la ergonomía son factores que convierten a este producto muy a tomar en cuenta para todos los usuarios que necesitan trabajar en movilidad. Por contra, sus supuestas capacidades táctiles nos han dejado bastante indiferentes.
