Since my Macbook only has two USB ports, I'd like to get myself a mouse that can pair with the Mac's built-in bluetooth. The obvious choice is the Apple Magic Mouse, but at $70 it's pretty much overkill. I don't need the touch functionality, since the Mac's trackpad already does a great job with that.

I'm mostly looking for something that allows me accurate control, isn't too large (so I can toss it in my backpack), and isn't too expensive. And looks nice next to the Aluminum Macbook, or course. :)

  • Hey @Neil, how did you go on your mouse hunt?

  • Honestly, I've ended up swapping my Logitech mouse between my netbook and my Mac, also have gotten more comfortable with the trackpad. The Kensington I used to use is better than anything else I can find, but it's too pricey to replace just now. A better mouse trumps having that extra USB port, I think. Aug 29, 2011 at 5:07
  • Why do you say you want a USB mouse to use it via Bluetooth? Jan 24, 2015 at 21:49
  • Usually, we choose either a USB mouse or a Bluetooth mouse. Jan 24, 2015 at 21:50

    @NicolasBarbulesco - That was a typo; I wanted to avoid tying up a USB port. Typo fixed. Jan 25, 2015 at 0:39

I've used the RadTech BT500 for some time and love it. It's small, rechargeable, works well, and silver in color, to look good next to aluminum Macs.


The Logitech V470 Cordless Laser Mouse for Bluetooth® may suit your needs.

BTW: I've used Logitech mice for a long time now and can say that they're built very well. They're a pleasure to use. The MX1000 is the greatest mouse ever built in my opinion. I've yet to use a Bluetooth mouse though.

    I've used a Logitech BT travel mouse for years now. Built well, compact size, good battery life. I don't think you could go wrong with the V470 recommended above.

  • I can't speak for the OP or for pricing in his area, but here in Canada, a V470 costs only $10 less than a Magic Mouse.
