Logitech MX Ergo

I've used both wired and wireless mice in my computing lifetime. Since I switched to wireless, however, I've been much happier not worrying 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.

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 so you can use it with your iMac Pro at home, your MacBook Pro on the go, and your PC at work.

Apple's own

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.

There are all different types of mice on the market for every type of user. I find the MX720 to be the most well-rounded with great features at a great price, thought the Magic Mouse is truly perfect for gesture-based mousing around on the Mac.
