    I am looking for Apple's magic mouse alternative, because I don't like the shape and mostly because it's too expensive. I'm looking for a mouse that would work with both Mac and PC and also that comes with a bluetooth usb stick and works both with it and without it. (I've got a PC without built-in Bluetooth so for that I need a USB Bluetooth stick and I've got a MacBook Pro with built-in Bluetooth so for it I don't need one). Any suggestions?

    There are Touch Mice, there are Bluetooth/USB mice, but there are no Bluetooth/USB Touch Mice. You'll have to sacrifice one for the other.

    I use this mouse, which does include the wireless USB "unifying receiver".

    The wife uses a logitech m505, which I used prior to the MX listed above.

    I don't need Touch Mice, I just need it to work with moth Mac and PC and since it's a bluetooth, it wouldn't necessarily need a usb Bluetooth stick in order to work.

    Yeah, I was looking for something up to 20 quid max

    I use the same mouse, migrated it from my old Winders© PC, works outstandingly well. Extra buttons map to some handy functions, there’s a native OSX Logitech control center for configuration, monitoring battery life, etc.

    The only caveat is it does use a proprietary USB adapter, it’s very tiny, but it does take up a USB port. Upside is it will also work with a Logitech keyboard (I’m also using a K800 wireless/backlit).

    Very comfy to use too (I use it ~10 hours a day)

    Do you have an iPhone? If so why not try one of the mouse apps that basically convert your phone into a magic mouse. I'm trying jumiOne at the moment, but there are plenty of others to try.

    Anything from Logitech's Unifying Receiver wireless mice lineup should work for you :)

    Wait, explain clearly the criteria that your mouse must meet.

    This is a bit confusing, since the Magic Mouse is supported by Windows.
