If you use a Macbook and travel a lot, you may prefer using a mouse instead of your MacBook's trackpad. In the past, finding accessories for your Mac could be a challenge; now, almost every mouse will work with Apple devices, at least partially. Using a mouse instead of your MacBook's trackpad can prevent wrist fatigue and is much better for tasks that require more accuracy, like using photo editing software or gaming. As all new MacBook Pros only have USB-C ports, the best mouse for MacBook Air and MacBook Pro needs to have a Bluetooth connection, so you can easily pair your mouse without the need for dongles and USB receivers. We've only included options that have Bluetooth support in this list. Most are also either rechargeable via USB or can last for months off of AA or AAA batteries.

We've tested over 240 mice, and below you'll find the best mouse for MacBook Pro. Also, make sure to check out our recommendations for the best mouse, the best wireless mouse, and the best ergonomic mouse.

    The best wireless mouse for MacBook Pro we've tested is the Apple Magic Mouse 2. It's also the best Bluetooth mouse for Mac we've tested since it doesn't use a 2.4 GHz connection, meaning you don't have to worry about losing a USB receiver to connect it. Its body is made of aluminum and acrylic, and it feels very solid and well-built.

    The Apple has a low profile, making it easy to slip into laptop bags. Also, this shape is well-suited for all hand sizes using a fingertip grip. The entire top surface of the mouse is tactile, and it feels very similar to a MacBook trackpad. You can use gesture controls anywhere on this surface to scroll, switch between applications, and zoom in and out. While there's only one button on top, it acts as both the L/R click button depending on where you press down.

    Unfortunately, its charging port is on the bottom, so you can't use the mouse while it charges. Also, its slim body means it's not well-suited for use with a palm or claw grip regardless of hand size. With that said, it's an extremely portable option, and it's the best wireless mouse for Mac devices, including the MacBook Pro.

  2. Best Ergonomic Mouse For MacBook Pro: Logitech MX Master 3

    The best ergonomic mouse for MacBook Pro that we've tested is the Logitech MX Master 3. It features a right-handed shape with a thumb rest that feels very comfortable to use, even for long periods. The solid-feeling plastic body has a soft-touch covering for added grip and a professional look.

    You can choose to enable a mode where the scroll wheel on top automatically unlocks for free scrolling, making navigating long documents a breeze. There's a secondary thumb wheel that lets you scroll horizontally, which is helpful when going through long spreadsheets or video editing timelines. Using the customization software, you can reprogram all of the buttons and enable gesture commands for greater customization of your workflow. You can connect the mouse wirelessly using its included USB receiver or Bluetooth, and it pairs with up to three devices at once.

    Unfortunately, it's bulky and heavy, so it doesn't easily fit into laptop bags when you're on the go. Due to its size, it isn't well-suited for people with small hands, regardless of grip type, as they may not comfortably reach the side buttons. With that said, it's an excellent choice if you're looking for a comfortable and premium-feeling office mouse with lots of customizability options.

    Trackball

    The best mouse for MacBook Pro with a trackball we've tested is the Logitech MX ERGO. It has a right-handed shape and a trackball on the left designed for use with your thumb. It's fairly large and heavy, but it remains stationary when you use it, which may prevent some of the wrist strain associated with more conventional mice you have to move across a desk.

    The Logitech feels very sturdy and connects wirelessly with its USB receiver or Bluetooth. You can pair it with two devices simultaneously and switch between them using a button behind the scroll wheel. Unlike many similar trackball mice that use a rotating ring around the trackball for scrolling, this mouse has a more typical scroll wheel with L/R tilt buttons for horizontal navigation.

    Unfortunately, the scroll wheel doesn't unlock for a free-scrolling mode, which can be disappointing if you frequently work with long documents or web pages. Additionally, this mouse has a low, fixed polling rate, so it isn't a very suitable choice for gaming after the workday is done. All in all, this mouse is a great choice if you also use your MacBook Pro at home and prefer a more ergonomic trackball design.

  4. Best Gaming Mouse For MacBook Pro: Corsair HARPOON RGB Wireless

    The best mouse for MacBook for gaming that we've tested is the Corsair HARPOON RGB Wireless. You can use it wirelessly via Bluetooth or its USB receiver, and there's space within the mouse to store the receiver, so you won't lose it when on the go. It has amazingly low click latency, ideal for gaming in any genre, including fast-paced and competitive games.

    The Corsair has two buttons on its left side and a CPI switching button behind its scroll wheel. You can reprogram most of the buttons using the iCUE software compatible with Windows and macOS. You can also use the software to set the CPI within a fairly wide range; however, you can only adjust the CPI in increments of 200, which isn't as precise as some other options.

    Unfortunately, its minimum lift-off distance is high, so the sensor may pick up unintentional cursor movements if you don't lift the mouse high enough when repositioning. Also, some users may find it's too heavy for their preferences, and it doesn't have onboard memory. That said, this option is still a great option if you're looking for something portable with good gaming performance, making it the best gaming mouse for Mac we've tested.

  5. Cheaper Alternative: Corsair KATAR PRO Wireless

    Standard

    If you're looking for a cheaper model with an ambidextrous shape, check out the Corsair KATAR PRO Wireless. Although it doesn't feel as well-built as the Corsair HARPOON RGB Wireless, it has onboard memory to save your customized setting profiles and uses AA batteries. Using its customization software also allows you to adjust the set CPI more precisely in increments of 100 rather than 200, and its click latency is marginally lower. It also has a storage compartment for its USB receiver, so you won't have to worry about losing it when you're on the move. Unfortunately, it doesn't have RGB lighting, which may disappoint users looking for a certain aesthetic.

    If you're looking for a wireless gaming mouse that feels sturdier, go with the HARPOON. If you want a cheaper option that uses AA batteries and has onboard memory, get the KATAR PRO.

  6. Best Budget Mouse For MacBook Pro: Logitech Pebble M350

    The best mouse for Mac that we've tested with a budget price tag is the Logitech Pebble M350. This highly-portable option looks much like its name suggests and has a low-profile, matte gray plastic body that feels decently well-built for its price point. Its shape is well-suited for a fingertip grip, regardless of hand size.

    You can connect the Logitech wirelessly using either Bluetooth or its dedicated USB receiver. It only requires a single AA battery for power, so you don't need to worry about carrying around a charging cable. Unlike the Apple Magic Mouse 2, this mouse also has a physical scroll wheel, which some users may prefer over the gesture-command scroll wheel found on the Apple. This mouse has a very low fixed polling rate and fairly high click latency, making it a poor choice for gaming use, but it's more than capable of handling everyday browsing tasks and most productivity work.

    Unfortunately, it's not a very comfortable option to use for long periods, thanks to its small body and very low profile. It also doesn't have as many features as other more office-oriented mice, like side buttons or a scroll wheel that unlocks for free scrolling. Logitech doesn't offer any customization software for this mouse, so you can't customize its settings or button functions without third-party software. With that said, it's a good budget option if you're looking for an easily portable mouse for use on the go.

Our recommendations above are what we think are currently the best mice for Mac for most people. We factor in the price (a cheaper mouse wins over a pricier one if the difference isn't worth it), feedback from our visitors, and availability (no mice that are difficult to find or almost out of stock everywhere).

If you would like to do the work of choosing yourself, here is the list of all the mice we've tested with the MacBook Pro. Be careful not to get too caught up in the details. While no mouse is perfect for every use, most mice are great enough to please almost everyone, and the differences are often not noticeable unless you really look for them.
