Logitech Intros Ultrathin Touch Mouse for Mac
Wednesday, August 28, 2013
Posted by: Glenn

Logitech today announced the release of their Ultrathin Touch Mouse for Mac. According to the company, this new Bluetooth mouse for Mac users features a thin and feather-light design with full support for multi-touch navigation in OS X. It also features their Easy-Switch technology that allows you to share the mouse between devices. You can also charge the mouse via USB. Logitech claims that one minute of charge time will give you about an hour's worth of usage time with the mouse. The Logitech Ultrathin Touch Mouse for Mac will be available beginning in November for $69.99.

Hmm.. I like Logitech, the price and the USB charging... Looks like a new mouse is in my future!

I would have to see one in person. I'm not a fan of these lower profile mice. They might be good for touch, but they feel horrible in your hand. I absolutely hate the Magic Mouse.

I do too. This one looks a little more wedged shaped though. It also looks to be thicker in the front. That just might equal a better feeling mouse. It's also rechargeable, so it has that going for it too. On paper it definitely looks better than the Magic Mouse for the same amount of money.

I like the magic mouse so this is a no brainer for me. The USB charging is what cinched it. I hate replacing batteries all the time. The savings in batteries alone might be worth it.

I like the Magic Trackpad more than anything these days. I even have it connected to my Apple keyboard with the Magicwand from Twelve South. It's pretty awesome. I never found the Magic Mouse to great for multi-touch gestures anyways. It also kinda made my hand hurt. Then again, maybe I was just holding it wrong. Wink

Bring it back if you'd like to try this one. You gotta still be within your return period.

Tried both of Apple's mice, found my hand getting sore after a day of using them. I bought a Logitech Performance MX and love it - best mouse I've ever used and charges with a USB.

I like the scroll wheel on that mouse. It's like on a metal ball bearing and silky smooth, right?

I'm still rolling with my RadTech BT600. It's also an excellent rechargeable BT mouse.

I've never been that crazy about the Magic Mouse. It's just feels too flat in my big hands. I never really cared that much for the Mighty Mouse either. Even though it felt better in my hand. There's only one sort of cool feature about the Magic Mouse in my book. And that's the support for inertial scrolling.

I've used the Magic Mouse for a few years now and I like it. At first I didn't like a flat mouse but now I don't know if I'd want to go back to a large mouse.

Do you have favorite gestures or think that some work better than others? I would assume they are what keep you from going back to a traditional two-button mouse. Or do you just like the flat design better now?

I just got used to it, now I like it. I don't use it for anything more than a two button mouse. No gestures.
What I do like about it is that you are not forced to scroll in the center of the mouse. Wherever your finger naturally is positioned works.

I love the MagicM, use it on a firm pillow on the sofa to my Mac Mini to HDTV set up. With touch gestures there is no need or strain to hold it or manipulate it. It's great. Maybe it's harder to use on a table or desk top?

I like the Apple bt keyboard too, but once the Logitech lighted one with USB charging came out, it easily kills Apple's. I'll have the check out this new mouse. Logitech knows how to improve on apple and no mo' batteries. I use rechargebles but still. The Logitech kb lasts a long time too.

To me, a Magic Mouse beats a Windows 8 touchscreen anyday.
