I’ve used both wired and wireless mice in my computing lifetime. Since I switched to wireless, however, I’ve been much happier. I’m not worried about the length of my cord, getting tangled with my other peripherals, or using up precious USB ports. My best investment was Apple’s Magic Mouse, which is designed specifically for Mac and works like a mini trackpad. There are other great options out there, too. If you don’t like the flat design of the Magic Mouse, check out the rest of our favorites below.
Perfect for most
Also known as the Triathalon Mouse, Logitech’s low-cost, high-powered wireless mouse is a great mid-range product. It’s called the Triathalon Mouse because it has three Bluetooth device connections. You can use it with your iMac Pro at home, your MacBook Pro on the go, and your PC at work.
The MX Ergo is very comfortable and allows you to navigate your Mac without having to move your hand or wrist around on a mousepad all day. It is a fantastic mouse for those looking for something with an ergonomic design.
Kensington Expert Wireless Trackball Mouse
Lefties and Righties can use this trackball mouse with aplomb. It’s perfect for video editors, and the circular scroll wheel makes it easy to scan multiple pages or frames. The ergonomic design helps with wrist pain, and the additional padding ensures you’re holding your arm at the proper angle.
Best for wrist pain
Logitech MX Vertical
This vertical mouse has been specifically designed to relieve pain caused by resting your hand incorrectly on a traditional mouse. Its design positions your arm in its natural resting angle to improve comfort and help correct bad computer posture.
Elite gaming mouse
Logitech’s G602 is the best wireless mouse for clicking with the speed and efficiency needed to get through the toughest dungeon, beat the baddest boss, or out-skill the most talented sporting opponent.
SteelSeries Rival 650
SteelSeries makes an impeccable gaming mouse with nearly zero lag, pinpoint accurate crosshair placement, and the lowest lift-off detection around. Its buttons and weight balance is highly customizable for even the pickiest gamer.
Amazon Basics Wireless Mouse
If you’re looking for a basic mouse with no bells and whistles, and you don’t want to pay a lot for it, Amazon makes a reliable, simple mouse with no frills in your choice of fun colors. It also costs less than a large pizza.
MX Anywhere 2S Wireless Mouse
If you’re a multiple computer/multiple platform user, this is the mouse you need. It supports three different devices and is cross-platform compatible with Mac and PC. The 4000dpi Darkfield sensor also ensures that it works on any surface, including glass.
Apple Magic Mouse
Apple designed the Magic Mouse to work seamlessly with the Mac. Its multitouch surface lets you perform gestures like swiping to move between pages or scroll through websites, double-tapping with one finger to zoom, double-tapping with two fingers to call up Mission Control, and more.
Logitech MX Master 3 Advanced Wireless Mouse
Another winner from Logitech, this wireless mouse is built for speed. The electromagnetic magspeed wheel is not only ultra-fast; it’s precise (down to the pixel) and quiet. Set up app-specific customizations and work seamlessly on three computers or devices at once.
There are all different types of mice on the market for every kind of user. I find the MX720 to be the most well-rounded with great features at a great price, supporting up to three Bluetooth connections at once, letting you quickly switch between multiple devices at the touch of a button.
Apple’s own Magic Mouse is genuinely perfect for gesture-based mousing around on the Mac, having been made by Apple to blend a traditional mouse with multitouch gestures. We just wish it had a less cumbersome charging method.
