I’m working in the local coffee shop with the Viliv X70EX UMPC as a little laptop. I have my portable keyboard in front, and today I am adding the mouse I just picked up. The Microsoft Arc Mouse (s MSFT) is not new, but I finally picked one up, and I’m glad I did.
The Arc Mouse is a wireless portable mouse with two things that set it apart from the crowd. The first is it folds in half, making it very small for transport. The second is the USB dongle that plugs into the PC is very small and can even be left plugged in all the time, with little worry about breakage.
When folded, the mouse is as small as can be, but when it’s opened, it becomes a full-sized mouse that fits the hand perfectly. It tracks well and has a nice scroll wheel. It also has a button on the side that can do special functions when the Intellipoint software is installed, but I haven’t done that yet. I find the Arc Mouse to be a very good solution for the mobile worker.
