For any Mac user, a mouse is an essential tool in getting work done and making life easier. The right mouse can make the difference between hours of pain and aggravation, or smooth sailing through your working day with no problem at all. That’s why we’ve put together this list of the top 4 mice that are perfect for Macs, giving you some of the best options available to you based on your specific needs and preferences. Let’s dive in!
Apple Magic Mouse 2 (The best mouse for Mac)
Since its release, Apple’s Magic Mouse 2 has received a lot of praise for its slick design and seamless use of Multi-Touch gestures. However, it also features an ambidextrous form factor and can support over 90 percent of all screen orientations, making it a top choice among users with wrist injuries and frequent rotations. The magic mouse may seem pricey at $79, but thanks to its design it works equally well with both hands. If that sounds appealing to you, then don’t wait around because Apple hasn’t released any other models since 2013. If not; stick around to find out more about your other options!
Logitech MX Master 2S (The best mouse for Mac)
The MX Master 2S is fast and responsive, which makes it ideal for most gaming needs. It also has a long battery life (up to 70 days) that won’t have you charging in the middle of a gaming marathon. Logitech’s newest wireless technology can recognize up to three devices at once, so if someone else grabs your mouse, it will automatically switch over to them. On top of that, its ergonomic design ensures that it won’t strain your hand or wrist over time as other models might. However, there are some who think that its side buttons are awkward and need too much pressure to use.
Logitech MX Vertical (The best mouse for Mac)
This wireless mouse lets you work with maximum comfort and ergonomics, and a small footprint. Because it’s cordless, it can work across your desk or on any other surface, no problem. With two scroll wheels positioned below your thumb, working feels comfortable and natural—especially if you’re coming from a world of trackpads. And when you do need to charge up, it only takes three hours to bring you back up to full power. The MX Vertical also comes with Logitech Flow Scroll software so that scrolling will work across multiple screens—or all of them at once!
Anker Vertical Wireless
Anker’s entry into wireless mice has been a long time coming, but we’re glad it finally arrived. It isn’t quite as premium as Anker’s other products, but at $35, it definitely checks all of our boxes when it comes to a wireless peripheral. The Vertical Wireless connects via 2.4GHz wireless and offers an excellent battery life of 50 hours in wired mode and 18 hours in wireless mode. It has a 1000Hz polling rate and 8 buttons (including left/right clicks, two side buttons, two-wheel clickers), which makes it an extremely versatile option.
Apple Magic Trackpad 2
The Apple Magic Trackpad 2 does an excellent job of providing a huge amount of space to move your mouse around. It’s a great option for macOS users who are concerned about desk space, or who like to have their laptop set up at a 90-degree angle. Its multi-touch gestures allow you to use all sorts of shortcuts, and it connects via Bluetooth so it’s more portable than other large mice. And while it doesn’t give you those cool side buttons found on other mice, having that extra space makes up for it in many ways.
Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Mouse
If you’re using a Surface Pro or Surface Laptop, we recommend Microsoft’s Designer Bluetooth Mouse. The charging cradle is built directly into its body, so it won’t take up any additional space on your desk. In addition to scrolling in two directions and clicking smoothly across three, it has expandable side grips that allow users to customize their grip by folding them outward—no matter how much they need to scroll through their list of projects or articles online. It also comes with 1 year of free wireless performance support and 3 years of limited hardware warranty at the time of purchase! While not ideal for frequent travelers, if you use a desktop computer at home, we recommend investing in Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Mouse.
Logitech MX Ergo
Although most consider Logitech to be a hardware brand, it’s worth noting that they produce some of my favorite software as well. And while I love their MX Master 2S, it’s not always going to be compatible with every setup. The company recently released its latest ergonomic mouse: The MX Ergo. The MX Ergo has numerous features worth checking out. It’s available in both wired and wireless options and connects via a Unifying Receiver. A 3-level adjustable lift system makes it easy to reach all buttons at any time, and an auto-pawl scroll wheel eliminates unwanted twitching when you scroll through large pages or documents.
Logitech G Pro X Superlight
Logitech’s G Pro X Superlight is sleek, simple, and effective. A relatively new addition to their lineup, it doesn’t come with as many features as some of their other products but it’s a great choice if you’re looking for an ambidextrous mouse that’s comfortable to use. This mouse comes in at just under $50 dollars and has 1 DPI button allowing you to switch between different DPI settings on your Mac without having to open your System Preferences every time. To get around built-in windows gestures allow users to quickly and easily move through windows without taking their hands off of their keyboard.
Apple’s design aesthetic has inspired many imitators, but none have really matched its subtle beauty. The Satechi M1 Wireless Aluminum Bluetooth Multi-Touch Trackpad with Keyboard in Gold looks and feels like it was pulled directly from an Apple Store shelf, but at a much lower price point ($49.99). Its brushed aluminum case and beveled edges allow it to mimic Apple’s aesthetic perfectly; even users who haven’t seen an Apple keyboard up close will be hard-pressed to tell them apart.
