The Arc Touch Mouse Limited Edition Artist Series: Year of the Dragon from Microsoft is more than a mouse; it's a work of art. The black Year of the Dragon Arc Touch Mouse was designed by Shenzhen, China-based artist Paco. Chinese dragons are known to symbolize power, strength, good luck, and auspicious powers; all good qualities to conjure if you're looking to maximize productivity and enhance your workspace.

On the technical side, the mouse utilizes 2.4 GHz wireless technology for a reliable connection with minimal interference. Simply plug the nano transceiver into an available USB port on your Windows-based computer, and you'll be able to work from up to 30-feet away. When you're not using it, the transceiver can be attached magnetically to the bottom of the mouse for safe-keeping. The mouse is curved for superior comfort, and can be flattened if you want to take it on-the-go.

While most mice feature an on/off button, there's no such thing here -- simply curve to turn on, and flatten to turn off. You'll see a green light when the battery is working, but it eventually turns off to save battery life. Speaking of battery life, you can use your mouse for about six months without having to change batteries -- you can get a lot of work done in that amount of time. And don't worry about surprises; a battery status indicator will give you a heads up before they need to be replaced.

With the Arc Touch Mouse in hand you can click, tap, and flick your way across the web or through documents. To flick into hyperfast scrolling, just brush up or down with your finger. With Microsoft's BlueTrack technology, you can enjoy the power of optical and the precision of laser for tracking on virtually any surface. For added flexibility, you can use your Arc Touch Mouse in either your right or left hand. One last convenient feature: you can quickly and easily access common tasks like product information, registration, settings, and more for popular devices like cell phones, cameras, printers, and mouse, keyboard, and webcam products.

      Comments about Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse Limited Edition Artist Series: Year of the Dragon:

      The mouse is light and ergonomically feels good in my hand. Unfortunately the "arc" the mouse makes for the palm to rest on cannot be adjusted meaning people with hands too small or too large will not enjoy this mouse. Other than that tracking works well and the buttons work well including the touch strip that replaces the conventional mouse wheel. It should be noted the mouse wheel clicks made when scrolling can be disabled through its driver software.

        if you are an apple magic mouse fan, this will not do. no horizontal scrolling.. which is terrible for windows 8 users as you really need it in the tiled view.

        also, for designers - i wouldn't choose that, it's more of a consumer show off type mouse, not that ergonomic. but very compact and good for carrying around with your laptop.

          Comments about Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse Limited Edition Artist Series: Year of the Dragon:

          I was a huge fan of the original Arc Mouse, loved the shape. I have a Mac and had been using a Magic Mouse and bought the Arc Touch to replace it (the Magic Mouse is too flat). I had thought the Arc Touch was BlueTooth, but it ended up I was confused by the optical sensor being named BlueTrack. I figured I'd give it a try and was immediately disappointed by the responsiveness of the touch to scroll. It was slightly improved when I installed the Intellipoint software, but it was no where near as responsive as the Magic Mouse. Furthermore, the shape that I had come to love on the Original Arc Mouse was completely missing in the Arc Touch. I couldn't get over the buttons being completely flat. I have switched back to the Magic Mouse, but I still dream of one day getting a curved-button, bluetooth, responsive touch, Arc Mouse for use with my Mac.

            This is a remarkably well designed wireless mouse for regular use and in particular travel.

            I've been using my cool little mouse for weeks now and like it alot! When it's flat, it fits in my laptop bag so well, keeping everything together! It sits on my home desk for everyday use and is good for that to once you get a little used to the shape and size. Happy with my purchase!

              I travel out of state at least once a month, am a full time college student and run an office for an oilfield company. This mouse is great for the constant traveling I do because it folds flat and will run on almost any surface (the bed in my camper takes some creativity). I love the design and functionality of this mouse, I have not found anything to complain about.
