  • Is it worth upgrading to a wireless mouse? Absolutely. A wireless mouse will give you greater freedom, and remove some cable clutter from your desk.
  • Can you use a wireless mouse with multiple PCs? You can with some. Thanks to Easy-Switch technology, the HP Spectre 700 mouse lets you work seamlessly across four different devices.

In theory, using a mouse should be much quicker than stroking a trackpad. However, many wireless mice come with their own speed bumps. Some have a limited Bluetooth range; others lack sensitivity or the ability to switch between devices without pairing and unpairing constantly.

The new Spectre 700 by HP solves all such headaches. This compact wireless mouse lets you switch seamlessly between four different devices, and with a generous Bluetooth range. In addition, the built-in controls allow you to navigate faster than ever before.

What is the best wireless mouse for work?

When you’re trying to get things done, your mouse needs to provide speed and precision.

The new Spectre 700 from HP delivers on both counts. This compact Bluetooth mouse has a resolution of 1,200 dpi, meaning you can easily zip across multiple windows and make small adjustments to your designs. If you need to slow down, it’s possible to adjust both the tracking and cursor speed.

Just as impressive is the Spectre 700’s four-way scrolling: up and down, and side to side. This is particularly useful for navigating spreadsheets and large images.

Being wireless, the Spectre 700 gives you the freedom to work anywhere. As the mouse has a range of 10 meters, you can even use it as a makeshift remote during a presentation.

Furthermore, you can pair the Spectre 700 with four devices at the same time. You can switch between them seamlessly, and the mouse is natively compatible with both Windows and Mac machines.
