TechSpot: Touch Mouse 3-Way Roundup

When it comes to input peripherals and more specifically pointing devices, the options available to the end user are near limitless. TechSpot is taking a look at three mice that aren’t necessarily as high-end or feature-packed as some popular gaming and enthusiast oriented products. These wireless mice are smaller and simpler in what they entail, yet they all feature one distinct characteristic – touch sensitivity.

Meet the contenders: Microsoft’s Arc Touch, Mad Catz's Eclipse touchmouse, and SpeedLink’s Cue Wireless Multitouch.

Although all three could easily be used as full-time desktop mice, I suspect most would categorize them as on-the-go laptop companions based on their small footprint and wireless connectivity.

The techspot.com link doesn't open in IE9. Had to use Chrome.

No problem for me, must be your system…

Happy Cue user here. There's only one flaw from my point of view: The Cue lacks the third-party customization that the Magic Mouse has…

Untill i tried touch mice i dont see how they are better than button ones.

They are for mobile users. Arc Touch folds flat for easy transport.

Microsoft's Arc Touch is a good mouse <3.

Yeah, I loved the original Arc and will be getting the Arc Touch shortly. It's easily the most comfortable portable mouse I've ever used.
