Although trackpads are becoming more popular options for Mac users, a lot of folks still prefer to use traditional mice as their pointing device, and Logitech continues to up the game in this area with its MX Anywhere 2 Wireless Mobile Mouse ($80). Designed for portability, this new mouse features a new Darkfield Laser Sensor that’s designed to track on any surface you put it on — including glass — so you can use it just about anywhere you happen to be, with nothing more than a flat surface required. The compact design allows you to easily slip it into a bag, and a countered shape and rubber surface makes it comfortable even for prolonged use.
The scroll wheel on the MX Anywhere 2 mouse is equipped with hyper-fast scrolling, so you can quickly read through long documents or Web pages and then shift to click-to-click mode for more precise navigation.
Similar to the Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse, the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 Wireless Mobile Mouse can be customized by using Logitech OptionsTM software to replicate touch gesture controls on Mac® computers so you can accomplish more with precise control. The rechargeable battery lasts up to two months replacing the need for spare batteries, and one minute of USB-cord charging gives you up to two hours of usage.
Dual-connectivity allows you to connect it to your Mac (or Windows PC) either using the included Pico Unifying Receiver, or you can pair it directly using Bluetooth Smart technology. You can even pair it with up to three devices at once and easily switch between them, making it easy to use it with your iMac and then toss it in the bag for use with your MacBook on the road. The scroll wheel also features hyper-fast scrolling to work through long documents quickly, as well as a precision click-to-click mode for more precise navigation. A built-in rechargeable battery provides up to two months of use, and the mouse can be recharged with USB, with one minute of charging lasting another two hours, so you can quickly get back to work right away.
