Ahh, BlueTrack. The mice technology from Microsoft that allows you to smoothly operate your mouse on just about any surface (non-reflective please). The rumpled sheets on your bed, the non-flat surface of an airport terminal’s seat, even on the jeans you are wearing. It will work smoothly under those circumstances, better than your laser or optical mice.
The only thing stopping you from getting one? Maybe the price. The most basic wireless BlueTrack mouse costs Php1200 while the Arc Touch Mouse featuring this technology costs Php3,450. Then there’s the Microsoft Express mouse for those who are not willing to spend more than a thousand pesos on a mouse and are contented with a good old basic wired mouse.
Designed just right, Express Mouse is Microsoft’s most recent addition to its line of BlueTrack-capable mice. It features an attractive colored Red or Grey rubber wire, scroll wheel, and its glossy white egg-shaped design with a unique off-centered USB cable to reduce resistance when the mouse is used on the right-hand side.
Its suggested retail price of Php790 makes it a reasonable choice for those searching for a no-frills device. It is also compatible with both Mac and Windows.
