Microsoft Arc Touch full review
With the world gone touch mad, Microsoft has joined in with the Arc Touch. It features a scroll strip instead of a wheel to keep the overall profile of the mouse as thin as possible.

The haptic feedback when using the strip was surprising responsive when we first used it.
Clearly, the portability of this mouse is its major selling point, yet in use the mouse doesn’t feel very comfortable in the hand. The rather stiff buttons require your fingers to be positioned at the very front of the mouse to perform a positive click.
In addition, we wonder how long the ‘cracking action’ (that switches the mouse from flat to curved and turns it on and off) will actually last even with Microsoft’s legendary build quality.
