Microsoft Surface Arc Mouse

I got one of these for Xmas from my mother in law (she insisted on getting me something and I said if you must, I'd been thinking about this). It's super cool looking and I like how it snaps to flat for storage. But using it really bothers my wrist! I think it's just a little too small for my hand. Also I don't like how you have to have only one finger on the button to right click...I'm so used to resting two fingers on the buttons with two button mice.

Anyone else have one of these? What do you think?

I had one and hated it. I think it's collecting dust now in some drawer, but I liked the concept.

I tried a colleague's and found it ok except for one concern. I don't know if they had squashed it accidentally, but I found the "arcing" mechanism a little loose and it bothered me. Great idea, but I don't see it being very durable. My preference is the full blown Sculpt bluetooth mouse. A little hefty but it works for me.

I got one to go with my new Surface Pro (first windows computer I've bought in 15? years). I find the scrolling to be difficult, but maybe that is just because I'm used to Apple mice. Do like how it folds flat for travel.

I have one, use it all the time. It folds flat so fits well in the pocket of my laptop sleeve.

Have one and like it a lot. Took some getting used to. Now I hate using regular mice.

I hate mice with extra buttons. Two buttons and a wheel is all I want.
