A compact and impressive mouse for laptops
This small but perfectly formed mouse from Microsoft is designed to be used with a laptop computer.
To that end it’s slightly smaller than the average desktop model, and its tiny USB receiver fits neatly into a slot on the bottom when not in use. That said, it works just as well with any desktop PC.
As well as the usual two buttons it has a third smaller button to one side and a clickable wheel. One AA battery is required, and one is included in the box.
The Mobile Mouse 4000 uses Microsoft’s new Blue Track technology, and although we are not sure this is any better than the laser systems found in other mice it works well enough.
The product we tested came in a rather gaudy shade of yellowish green, but a range of other, nicer, colours are available. The recommended price of £35 is ludicrously high, it can be easily found online for less than £20.
At that price, it’s a good buy.
