    I have acquired an old Apple Mouse II. This is the model that is all one color (platinum) and has a button that is the same height as the rest of the case.

    It is model M0100, but it is not a Macintosh mouse. Apple (in their never-ending wisdom) had at least five versions of the M0100 mouse.

    So anyway, I know this is either a Mouse II or a Mouse II (//c compatible) but I don't have a //c to try it on. Does anyone know if there is a way to tell from the serial number which model it is?

    Here is a picture of it:

    An M0100 with that case design and slightly elongated DB9 plug is the original IIc mouse. It has the additional electronics to tell a IIc that it's a mouse and not game paddles. It will work on both early Macintosh machines AND the IIc.

    Thanks! I thought it was probably a //c compatible mouse, but I wanted someone to back me up.
