Gear65 Plus - A MacBook Pro companion: MS Bluetooth Mouse 5000

I just got myself a new mouse, one that I’ve spent quite some time deciding on (as I always do with my gadgets), and share with you why this is the perfect mouse for me after I got my new MacBook Pro. For all you know, it might just be the perfect mouse for you too.

    Good video @Dan.

    Just wondering if you tried to see if the mouse skips/jumps when you flick it around too much (used to be a problem with gamers, cos they want to flick the mouse and expect it to not jump around too much).

    That was one issues with bluetooth (slower than USB) for years. Maybe they have better ways of doing that now.

    • Just tried it by moving the most really quickly, no erratic behavior as far as I can tell.

    I think the Razer Orochi meets the requirements, im a PC user though but i had the Orochi for 2 momths, its bluetooth, has like 7 buttons and has the option to go wired for intense gaming. I sold mine because i couldnt get use to the small size. Oh and its $120, not cheap.

    ya that was me, i posted there, but i thought it would be better here.
    its good for gamers and from what i see in school a few mac users have it. ambidextrous design with 2 addition buttons on each side, total 7 buttons. probably be a better choice than the microsoft mouse, better looking, more comfortable ergonomic design. Of course its not cheap.

    • Yep, it is quite a good mouse for hardcore gamers. For the rest of us, it might be a little overkill though.
