This folds flat and makes it much easier to pack. It is about he same size footprint of a retular mouse - saving you the compromize if having to get a little mouse to save space. I bought this to trave with an ultrabook and both cases I have for this are very close fitting. I thought the reciever would have to be removed and attached magnetically, but it hasn't worked out that way. I would be sure to pack this where the magnet won't cause damage

This seemed like a good purchase at first but once I got it home and started using it, I don't really like it. First of all, it makes a strange noise that is supposed to simulate clicking of the wheel. It sounds like a creaking spring and is impossible to turn off if you have a Mac. Supposedly you can turn the sound off on windows but I'm not sure. The touch pad on the top didn't seem to track very well. I'd give it 2.5- stars.

This is a really great mouse. Only complaint is that it is slightly un ergonomic but I'll sacrifice a little of that for the convenience of it

              This mouse is great. I highly recommend it. I like the way that it turns off when flat, and powers on instantly when bent. The magnetic usb bluetooth is a nice touch. The buttons and scroll are customizable. It's lightweight. What else do you need.

                  I had my doubts, but it works great and feels great the magnet to hold the usb is much stronger than I thought and is very easyily hidden when plugged in. I love it!

                  Comments about Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse (Black):

                  I use it with my Surface Pro 3. When flattened out it fits very nicely into the pocket of my Surface Pro sleeve. It is very comfortable to use. It did take me a while to discover that the USB unit magnetically attaches to the mouse when not in use. I deducted one star from the score because the scroll function on the mouse sometimes continues to scroll up or down after I stop scrolling. When this happens, a left click on the mouse stops the scroll function.

                    I love this mouse because it goes flat and fits into my laptop case also most compact mice are hard to hold in your palm this one feels even better than my mouse at home it's curved for maximum comfort.

                        I have been using this mouse for the past 2 years and just replacing it now as the old one broke due to misuse. I also read that some people were complaining about the fake scrolling sound it makes and that they hate it; why don't they turn it off. It's an option in settings to make is all quiet.

                        If you travel like I do this is the mouse for you. Lays flat when not in use so it does not take up much space. It even has a magnet to hold the USB dongle when not in use. No more lost dongles.

                            Its a great looking, comfortable and reliable mouse. Stores flat when it's off so it fits well even in a pocket. Magnet on back of mouse holds the receiver when in transport. Would prefer the receiver to store IN the mouse but not a game changer.
