Microsoft Singapore Unveils New Arc Touch Mouse And Office For Mac 2011
Mac users can enjoy the latest full-featured Microsoft Office for Mac 2011. Microsoft Singapore today unveiled the latest office software – Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Outlook – as well as a new Arc Touch mouse. The stylish Arc Touch mouse can be flatten for portability and popped up for use.
Updated: Office for Mac 2011 available now, pricing unveiled!
The Arc Touch mouse has a rubber, flexible body. The head where the scroll and left/right buttons are sport a glossy black finish.
You can bend the body until it locked into place in order for it to be used use. The mouse will be powered as shown by the illuminating yellow light. At the bottom of the body is a magnetic strip that lets you park the USB nano receiver when not in use.
One feature we like about the Arc Touch mouse is the touch scroll strip. When you scroll on the touch scroll strip, you can feel the slight haptic feedback that gives a very realistic experience of scrolling the mouse.
Unfortunately, the Arc Touch mouse isn’t available until January next year and retail at S$99.
