    My MX Revolution worked great with my previous gen Macbook Pro, but I recently purchased a new Macbook Pro 15" (current gen) and get crazy lag / jerkiness / stutter when using bluetooth.

    I've googled and googled and found threads but no solutions. I've tried uninstalling Logitech options, installing steermouse, just using OS X to manage the mouse, etc. None have solved the problem.

    Obviously, I can use the unifying receiver but that also entails having yet another USBc adapter sticking out of my laptop which isn't all that useful.

    So - has anyone solved this problem, or am I simply at the mercy of Logitech / Apple?

    "Obviously, I can use the unifying receiver but that also entails having yet another USBc adapter sticking out of my laptop which isn't all that useful."

    Well.... the "unifying receiver" IS "the solution".
    It all boils down to which is more important to you:
    - smoother mouse operation (with the unifying receiver)...
    or
    - no receiver (via Bluetooth), but with the "jerkiness" that seems inherent in Bluetooth.

    My logitech mouse is a bit jittery when wifi is also enabled.

    There's no fix for that mouse without using the Unifying receiver. My "fix" was to buy a Hyperdrive USB-C hub with the unifying receiver attached. There may be other third party mice on the market that work properly over Bluetooth. I can confirm that the Magic Mouse is buttery smooth, but I personally can't stand the thing.
