    What is a good mouse, preferably under 30 dollars on amazon that is good quality and is small. Maybe like the arch mouse.

    The arc touch mouse is only $36 on Amazon right now. It is easily the best mouse for travel considering how thin it is.

    I think the arc touch mouse surface edition is the best. I own one, and feels better than the original. It also doesn't require a USB, just Bluetooth.

    Didn't even know that existed. Would be considerably more expensive though. Is there any difference in response time? I have had bad luck with many bluetooth devices.

    It connects very fast, and feels very nice. Much more pricey than the regular. I think it's worth it though.

    Do you know of any battery life comparisons of the two?

    I love my Wedge Mouse. I know it gets a lot of hate, but its so compact are quite fun to use and show off. Its a little more pricey than $30 but I think the cool factor of it is worth it. It turns heads when people see it!

    You want the touch one. I have heard the wheel on the regular one breaks a lot.

    Okay, whats the difference between the arch touch surface edition and the regular arch touch.

    I don't really like the wedge one because it is too small.

    It was said in an earlier post. Regular uses a usb dongle and the Surface edition uses Bluetooth.

    I've had it for almost 2 weeks, and played games on it and had to use it for a long time, and haven't had to replace the batteries yet.

    There is a 40 dollar price difference between arch touch and arch touch surface edition, Not sure if its worth the extra 40!

    I'm not going to deny that it's small, or try to convince you to get it, but I have MASSIVE hands and while I couldn't see myself using it on my primary desktop, when on the go it is more than suitable and really is not at all hard or uncomfortable to use! I'm not saying its more comfortable than the arch, but if you are ever in a position where you can give it a try id say do it! My only complaint with the mouse is lack of Windows 8 gestures support (they said it was coming, I'm still waiting)

    It depends on whether you want to be able to use the USB port for something other than the mouse. I have both the wedge and the new Arc mouse. I like the new Arc better. I also like the fact then when folded flat it turns off to travel. I found the wedge mouse would sometimes turn on when in the case as its button was accidentally pressed.

    Spend this much on a tablet, the extra money is well justified in my opinion.

    Oh yes that too! I always flick the battery cover for travel.

    I bought the Microsoft Sculpt Mouse (strange names they have...) for my new PC and I love it! It might be a bit big for your needs though, but it is Bluetooth, so you don't need any USB thing

    I think it is. I felt both of them, and the surface edition feels MUCH better!

    Are you, or have you, had any problems with it staying connected? I have had mine for 3 weeks and at first it would lose connection and not be able to reconnect unless I did a restart. After a fix I found searching the internet it started working fine until the November update and now the problem is back with losing connection for no apparent reason. I also discovered that I am not alone with this problem as well as others having Bluetooth issues with the Surface2

    I had an issue once before the last updates. No issues since on the Surface 2.

    I tried the Arc Touch Surface Edition but didn't like it. The fact that the laser tracker is on the front of the mouse makes it far less accurate for me - I tried to adapt for 5 days and I would always feel the urge to come back to my old Microsoft 5000 mouse because of misplacing the mouse pointer. Sometimes I rotate the mouse on its back to make tiny/precise movements, and having the sensor on the front wasn't working well.

    So I returned and got a Logitech Ultrathin mouse and all I have to say is that this little thing is superb! Super thin, super light, super accurate, and the touch surface works surprisingly well. But it's expensive, paid 60 EUR.

    Logitech Ultrathin mouse is worth the money, best mouse for the Surface. If you are doing a lot of mousing, this is the mouse to get, only $60 on Amazon.

    Does the Ultrathin mouse work on glass like the anywhere mouse? I find myself on a glass work surface quite often, and that feature is a must. I know that the Arc Touch Surface doesn't advertise that as a feature, either so if anybody has use the Arc Touch on glass please post a reply. Thanks.
