Microsoft unveils new $79.99 Surface Arc Mouse in three colors; pre-orders now open

Alongside its new Surface Laptop, which runs Windows 10 S - a new edition of the OS limited to running apps downloaded from the Windows Store - Microsoft also unveiled a new peripheral, designed to match the sleek lines of its premium notebook.

The new Surface Arc Mouse is "slim, light, and ready to travel", according to Microsoft, and "designed to conform to your hand". Like Microsoft's older Arc Touch Mouse, the new accessory is completely flat when stowed in your bag, but can be 'snapped' and locked into a curved shape, so that it can be used comfortably. Snapping it back to its flat position powers it down to preserve battery life.

The Surface Arc Mouse has left- and right-click buttons, and comes in three colors, two of which match those of the new Surface Laptop. It also features a touch-sensitive 'scroll plane', allowing users to swipe their finger across its surface to scroll up and down, or left and right.

The mouse connects to a device via Bluetooth 4.0, and is fully supported on Windows 8, 8.1 and 10.

You can pre-order the Surface Arc Mouse now for $79.99 in the US, with shipments beginning on June 15. You can get a further overview of the new Surface Arc Mouse in the video below:
