[Amazon.ca] Microsoft modern mobile mouse - $24.99

Decent price for a Bluetooth mouse. I use this with my surface pro 4 and works perfectly.

Check out the other colours, some are on sale too.

I had one with my work surface.

Personally, I don't like it because there isn't any support for the centre of your palm - byproduct of the flat design.

Support only for the base of the palm and the fingers, so felt weird using it. Mind you, I was coming from MX Master 2S so it feels like two opposite ends of the spectrum.

Nice deal for those who do like using it though.

It’s mushy and uncomfortable. It works on glass though

First thought was ergonomic nightmare. Great for people who are more concerned about appearance though and want a particular look.

This is a magic mouse like mouse. Which I can comfortably use for about 10 min. Good for limiting my gaming time.

Perfect example of the form-over-function trend, pushed by Apple and copied by other manufacturers. Flat keyboard, flat mouse, etc. All about looks, ergonomics & functionalities be damned.

I have it. It's great as a travel mouse because it's really slim. I find it confortable.

I had a similar mouse... Don't recommend this due to bad ergonomics especially for large hands.

I picked it up for someone's work laptop, they have smaller hands and are happy with it for work. Can't comment if you have larger hands or plan to use it for gaming, I suspect the latter is a definite no.

I have one and used it with my Surface. It's fine for light usage where it's slim size makes it easy to carry.

I don't use it for my day to day setup it's a bit flat for large hands.

Same here, makes a great companion for the Surface if it's for occasional use. I only use my Surface when travelling so ergonomics don't really come in to play as it is only used for short periods and yes the flat design makes it easy to slip in my Surface sleeve.

I used a Magic mouse for a few weeks and developed wrist pain. Once I switched to a Logitech M705, the pain went away. I'm not a fan of flat mice. I'm a believer that the shape of a mouse should be fit the palm of a person while sleeping

Stay away unless it’s for temporary/rare travel use only. It’s flat so packs well, but as mentioned above, is terrible for ergonomics. Before I knew what that word meant, I used this mouse for nearly a year as my main and started having some joint pain. Switched mouses to a vertical “handshake” mouse and the pain went away within a few weeks. If you’re using a tool 7-10 hours a day, my recommendation is to go function over form. A vertical mouse is definitely a head turner (and not in a good way) but it certainly is comfortable.

This one is around the same price, though is not Bluetooth:

It's more about portablity than any thingelse. It's good to toss in a flat style bag(e.g. a briefcase or a laptop case) but oterwise not the best mouse in the world.

I’ve used the Microsoft Arc mice for years for travel and to carry around the office for meetings. It’s fantastic for that purpose, since I hate using trackpads. It’s much better than the slim mice because when it opens up it’s a much better fit for your hand. Even with the better ergo, I don’t use it at my desk though.

It’s more expensive and probably not on sale, but if you’re solely looking at this deal for travel, I’d suggest spending more (or waiting) for the Arc series.

Bought one a while ago to pair up with my Surface Laptop. It worked fine, but the button presses are really really loud. No way I could use it in a meeting. Ended up buying a Lenovo mouse that was posted here a while ago. Much happier with it.
