Hi

I'm planning to buy a mouse for my MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports).
What kind of mouse should I buy?
I'm thinking of buying a magic mouse 2, but I feel it a bit flat.
Is it customary or should I switch to another mouse?
Razer deathadder elite size is about what's right.

Thank you

Magic Mouse is bluetooth. I think the other mice are wired, especially Razer mice. If I'm wrong then disregard.

Go with what you feel comfortable with and will use.

Apple has never designed mice with ergonomics in mind (e.g. the infamous hockey puck mouse).

The multitouch interface of the Magic Mouse is great, but it's not for everyone.

If you're looking for an alternative, I would recommend a Logitech mouse. They make very reliable products.

I'm interested in the answer to this question as well. I actually love the Magic Mouse but I have a 2-in-1 PC that I want a mouse for and am looking for the closest thing to the MM that works natively on Windows. I've looked at all the Logitech options, but none of them have touch gestures, which is my favorite part about the MM. I tried the Microsoft Surface Arc mouse, which looked promising, but I really don't like it at all. Compared to the MM, the cursor movement feels jerky and imprecise.

Open to suggestions for Magic Trackpad alternatives too. Looks like Logitech used to make something similar but it has been discontinued.

I have a magic mouse and honestly I don't even use it. For me it's too flat and just functions in a weird way... I usually love all apple product but this was a miss for me.
