Kensington SlimBlade Notebook Wireless Mouse with Nano Receiver PC and Mac

Updated on March 15, 2011


Travel Mice are usually very tiny or they are corded. The Kenisington SlimBlade Notebook Wireless Mouse is small but not too small. Instead of being thick requiring your hand to wrap around it this wireless mouse is thin allowing your hand to be more relaxed.

The flat surface may take a while to get used to but most users report that they do not think that it is a problem. Since it is a travel mouse the convenience makes up for any issues they may have. The scroll wheel is a 4-way tilt so the functionality is not in question.


This difference in form factor is good for travelers. It allows the mouse’s footprint to be a bit larger (about the size of a credit card) yet so thin that it packs well into a compuer bag. As with any wireless mouse there is a reciever. The SlimBlade Notebook Mouse uses a Nano Receiver which is so tiny that you may decide to leave it in the USB port during your entire trip.

Plug-n-Play makes installing the Kensington SlimBlade an easy task. Two AAA batteries powers the SlimBlade Mouse for up to 6 months and an indicator light lets you know when you need to replace them. The on-off switch will save batteries when the mouse is not being used. If you do not switch it off it will go to sleep.

Whether you are a PC or a Mac user you are in luck – this mouse it compatible with both.  It is compatible with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. It is also compatible with MacOS X 10.4 or later.


Most laser mice demands a mouse pad when the surface is uneven, shiny or clear. This Kensington mouse is much more forgiving which makes it perfect for those that do not want to tote around a mousepad while traveling.

The Kensington SlimBlade Notebook Wireless Mouse with Nano Receiver is a travel mouse so it is quite a bit smaller than most other computer mice whether wired or wireless. People with small hand will probably like that it is smaller and may want to use it as their everyday mouse.
