The Bottom Line The Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 doesn't leave much room for complaint. Some will balk at the $40 price tag, but this mobile traveler fits comfortably in your hand and it can mouse on almost any surface, thanks to Microsoft's innovative Bluetrack technology. With a small footprint and a variety of stylish colors to choose from, this mouse makes a useful (and worthy) addition to your mobile arsenal. The Explorer Mini mouse features Microsoft's new BlueTrack sensor technology, which makes for smooth scrolling across almost any surface. Travelers listen up: unless you're left-handed, we're sure you'll appreciate its portability, ease of use, and innovative design. Logitech has met and surpassed Microsoft's recent mouse technology innovations by introducing the most versatile mouse sensor on the market in its new Performance Mouse MX. But even if you don't have a glass table crying out to become a workspace, this high-end input device has enough features and cushy design to make it a justifiable indulgence for anyone who takes their cursor control seriously. The Anywhere Mouse MX bears Logitech's multiconnective Unifying receiver and glass-tracking Darkfield laser, but $80 is too much for a portable mouse--especially when the Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 costs half the price for almost the same features. Not everyone needs a living-room mouse, but for those who do, the Logitech Couch Mouse M515 provides a well-thought-out option, and for a reasonable price.
