    My first instict is to say yes, because it's one of those things where the minimum length is probably more than sufficient. However, I advise you to read to read the package and see what it says about the maximum length. Since your macbook is about 13 inches in length, and about 9 inches in depth, and you need another two inches so that it can reach the USB port on the other side, I would advise buying a mouse that has a length of at least 27 inches (give yourself at least three inches for room to work with, and for better moveability). In the end, a good length for your macbook is probably something around 30 inches (I think that's 76cm). Good hunting.:)
