Logitech MX Anywhere 2 Wireless: A top-notch mobile mouseIt's fairly pricey, but for laptop users on the go the MX Anywhere 2 is worth the investment.
[MUSIC] Logitech's MX Anywhere 2 wireless mobile mouse is essentially a mini travel friendly version of the company's flagship MX Master. This trimmed down mobile version retails for $80 though it can be found for closer to $60 online. I used it with both Mac and Windows laptops and like it a lot though ergonomically speaking It isn't as comfortable to use as the MX Master. That said, it's about as comfortable as you get for a smallish mobile mouse that's designed to easily fit in the side pocket of your laptop bag. And it's nicely weighted at 3.7 ounces or 106 grams. As you might expect from a high end mouse, it has plenty of extra bells and whistles. Thanks to Logitech's dark field laser technology, it works on just about any surface including glass and it's integrated rechargeable battery lasts up to 60 days on a single charge. Like the MX Master, you can connect this mouse to your Windows or Mac computer with the included Pico Unifying Receiver or via Bluetooth Smart technology. If you go with Bluetooth, you can pair the mouse with up to three devices, and switch between a laptop, desktop, or tablet using the Easy-Switch button. Logitech's Option software let's you customize all the buttons on the mouse and Mac users enjoy the extra luxury of gesture support. Most multi-finger trackpad gestures can be duplicated by holding down an extra key. One of the key features of this mouse is it's speed adaptive scroll wheel that lets you autoshift from click to click It's a hyper-fast scrolling with the press of a button. That scroll wheel and it's smooth precise nature is one of the components that helps justify the mouse's premium price and make it a worthy successor to the original MX Anywhere, which was powered by two AA batteries and didn't look or feel quite as swanky as this mouse.
