Logitech MX Master 3

Best overall:

Staff pick

The MX Master 3 is the perfect mouse to buy if you’re not as concerned with portability. Its full-size build is extremely comfortable, it can be paired with up to three devices for easy switching, and its 4,000 DPI sensor is accurate. Connect with Bluetooth or an included USB dongle (via adapter) and enjoy long battery life. If you have an office setup where you often add the Go or Go 2, this should be a top pick.

Surface Arc mouse

Great for travel:

Editor’s choice

The Surface Arc mouse measures just 14mm at its thickest point when flattened out, meaning you can easily slip it into a laptop bag or sleeve. But the real attraction is its ability to snap into an arc shape to fit your hand. It connects with Bluetooth, offers up to six months of battery life from dual AAAs, and has a sort of touchpad feel that allows for easy swiping and clicking.

Logitech MX Ergo Wireless Trackball Mouse

Fix your wrist:

The MX Ergo is one of the best trackball mice on the market today, and it’s a fairly affordable solution to wrist and forearm pain when working at a PC over long periods. It connects with Bluetooth, works with multiple devices with easy switching, and the trackball is incredibly accurate once you get used to the feel.

Microsoft Bluetooth Ergonomic Mouse

It connects with Bluetooth, has incredible battery life, and its 7,200 DPI sensor is extremely accurate for when your aim needs to be true. It’s also quite comfortable despite its portable size.

Logitech Pebble M350

Thin and light:

This budget mouse is best suited for the frequent traveler. It’s thin, light, and its single AA battery can last up to 18 months depending on use. It’s not the most comfortable mouse out there due to its flat shape, but the fact you can pull it out of a laptop sleeve at an airport makes it a top pick. It connects with Bluetooth or a dongle, though an adapter is required for the latter solution.

Bottom line

The Surface Go and Surface Go 2 aren’t particularly generous when it comes to ports, so a wireless mouse is the best option. You could always use a USB-A to USB-C adapter for a 2.4GHz dongle, but it’s a far less elegant solution. Every mouse in this roundup has Bluetooth connectivity.

Our top pick is the Logitech MX Master 3. It’s a bit bulky to be used as a full-time travel mouse, but otherwise it checks all the boxes. It’s comfortable, has long battery life, can connect to multiple devices for easy switching, and it’s precise. If you’re in an office setting where you’re often incorporating your Go or Go 2, it should make a great choice.

The Surface Arc mouse is a much better pick for those always on the move. It snaps flat and turns off during travel, meaning your battery is where you left it before slipping the mouse into a laptop bag. All you need to do is snap it back into a curve to turn it on. It fits the hand well, it’s available in a bunch of different colors, and the battery lasts a long time.
