    Since the Surface only has 1 USB port I need to find a good Bluetooth mouse that works well with the Surface? Anybody have any suggestions on what I'm looking for that they have used personally?

    Thx

    I'm using the Microsoft Wedge Mouse because of its size and its made for Windows 8...

    Hi Jeff, would you mind taking a photo on how your hand or fingers, rest on it? That is not something you put your palm over is it?

    Is it comfortable in your hand? I read some of the reviews at Amazon and they seem mixed. Some say they love it, and others say that it's too small and it's ergonomically challenged? What's your overall opinion of it?

    Amazon is selling it for $52.75 does that sound about right?

    Thx

    While awaiting more feedback on the Wedge, I paired and currently using my trusty Genius bluetooth mouse that has served me for years. Works as it should.

    I will take pictures later when I have some time, but from a usability perspective it is very usable. It is small and it does take some getting used too, it is not a mouse that you rest your hand on. I've used the Arc Touch in the past, but it did hurt my hand and it occupies the lone USB Port.

    Honestly I use a mouse so rarely I wanted something very small that is able to be turned off and uses Bluetooth.

    Cool that makes sense, also what did you pay for it? Did you get it off of Amazon?

    I was an early adopter....I know that's a surprise ;) I bought it from the MS Store in September and paid full price, I also own the Wedge Keyboard, sometime I will use the two with Surface if I'm needing to do a lot of typing.

    Thanks Jeff. So the experience is like using a touchpad on a notebook...

    Amazon has the wedge mouse on sale...
    Amazon.com: Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse: Computers & Accessories
    ...so I ordered one and should have it in my hands by Friday.

    I wasn't going to get a mouse because the touch cover works so well, but it's hard for me to see the right/left click buttons on the black touch cover and I use them often when in desktop mode. That's not a problem with the hardware, it's a function of age. <sigh>

    That is a good savings for a brand new mouse.
