    I have a targus retractable mouse. I don't know how long it is, but it does reach the other side of my macbook without any problems

    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.:)
