Moving along from the Mac ecosystem to the Windows one does not only require a new OS. It also requires new hardware, big (like a PC and/or laptop) and small – like a keyboard and mouse. While I’m aware of some people using a Apple Magic Mouse with their PC and also some using huge mice like the Logitech Performance MX on their Macs, I wanted to drop the Apple stuff completely and use a nice, not too huge and heavy mouse. It should be fast, very fast, like.. well, the Magic Mouse. I’ve already mentioned the mouse I finally got in a previous post about the Asus laptop. It was not planned to get a Microsoft mouse. It should just be a Bluetooth one, which does not require me to carry around a stick for the mouse and “waste” an USB port. When we bought the laptops, I asked the salesman which mouse he could recommend. He first showed me the Arc Mouse, which is incredible ugly in my mind, but – she comes with bluetooth. I looked around in the rack and between all the hundreds of mice, I saw the Sculpt. Looks a bit different, and this blue key… what is that? They had one unboxed, so I grabbed it and felt: “Yeah! That’s a nice one!”. It should normally cost 50€, which is pretty steep in my mind. Asking for a rebate, I got 7€ off.
Being back at home, I tried it with the new laptop. This is in my mind the perfect mouse! Seriously. It’s fast, it feels fine and is much more ergonomic than the Magic Mouse.
A few days later, I ordered a second one for my wife. She also likes her new Sculpt Mouse 😉 – at least, I have not heard any complaints.
Last week, I placed another order – a third one, for my PC upstairs, which I had just set up. Sure, I could take the mouse I already have upstairs and go through the coupling process again and again, but that’s not what I want.
At Amazon, I got it for 30€ – what a price difference. Something went wrong with my order and so it took amazing 7 days until the third one arrived today.
Here’s my Pro and Contra list:
+ fast speed
+ very precise
+ not too expensive (at least online)
+ lays very good in my hand
+ Bluetooth instead of wireless stick
it’s glossy on the top

I guess the question, if I would buy it again is senseless, as I already bought it again two times 😉
