Surface Arc Mouse up for preorder in new Lilac, Sage, and Soft Pink colors

What you need to know

  • Following Microsoft's Surface event today, the company revealed 3 new colors for its Arc Mouse.
  • You can now snag the Arc Mouse in Lilac, Soft Pink, and Sage.
  • The three shades are now available to preorder for $80 (opens in new tab).

Microsoft hit the stage at its Surface event in New York City with a ton of new devices to show off, but it also managed to slip some new accessories in under the radar. Namely, there are new variations of the Microsoft Arc Mouse available to preorder now.

The new options are functionally the same as the old Arc Mouse, but you'll be able to snag it in three new colors. There are now Lilac, Soft Pink, and Sage colors to choose from, in addition to the black and silver colors that were previously available.

All three colors look fairly muted so that they won't stand out from your workspace too much. However, they add a little more character to the mouse that was missing before.

All three new colors are available to preorder now for $80. They're expected to start shipping on October 15.

  • Sage keyboard and pen, please. Thanks!
  • So that bright orangey red one... That can't be the old burgundy color, right? Or is it?
  • I think it's a replacement for Burgundy.
  • Lilac looks incredible, I would never buy one of these, but that colour looks great. Also, I think this is the first time I've properly looked at this mouse, does it not have a scroll wheel or does the "button" act more like a trackpad?
  • The scrolling can be done anywhere on the button with any number of fingers (I tend to use two because it feels nautral but you can use just one).
  • These would be a good fit with the Surface Neo.
  • Too bad they've limited this to the stupid mouse (I still don't get the appeal of this thing as a productivity device), and the colors are so muted from the old Surface devices. I wish we could get a Surface Design Lab like the Xbox One controller has or something. Imagine if you could custom order a black keyboard with bright green keys and a blue trackpad or something. I would be in on something customizable or, at least, less muted and boring.
  • I need a new keyboard...and since the very first Surface release, I've been hoping they'd release a green one. The sage is not quite the shade I want, but close enough. In the past, the mouse/pen colors matched the keyboards. Is it possible they just haven't announced these colors for the keyboard yet?
