Although a Chromebook's trackpad works well enough for most situations, a wireless mouse is best when using a larger display to multitask or during intense video gaming sessions. Chromebooks are here to stay, as they are great for everyone from students to gamers. Most wireless mice will work with all of the best Chromebooks, whether you're a student looking to get one as a part of your overall selection of Chromebook accessories, or if you're a Chromebook user who craves more precise navigation. Here are some of the best Chromebook mice to meet your unique needs.
No risk, easy set-up
Available in tons of cool colors, including this pastel-like mint green, this versatile mouse is compact enough to throw into your bag and easy to set up via the USB dongle and instant connection via a 2.4GHz network without the need to install drivers.
Slim and ambidextrous
Looking for an ultra-portable and lightweight mouse that both lefties and righties can use? The Logitech Pebble M350 solves those problems with its slim design while featuring ultra-quiet scrolling and up to 18 months of operation with a single AA battery.
Long life, low price
If you want a wireless mouse that is comfortable to hold, comes in different colors, and has a long battery life - users report about one year on average - then check out the Logitech M510. Your wallet will be as happy as you are!
It's got curves
This basic wireless mouse employs a curved, ergonomic design that helps reduce wrist pressure and can be used both left- or right-handed. With 30-month battery life, it operates on the 2.4GHz spectrum and is plug-and-play — no drivers needed.
Start with a precision laser for accurate tracking, toss in a newly sculpted body, a big free-spinning wheel, and redesigned thumb button, and you have this Logitech option. Keep the Bluetooth or USB receiver options and multi-device pairing from the original and see why we love the M720 Triathlon.
King of the hill
Some love it because of its shape, while others like it because of its ability to track anywhere (even frosted glass) or because it's rechargeable. But almost everyone (sorry lefties) agrees it's one of the best wireless mice you can buy for any computer, including your Chromebook. If you have multiple computers or supported tablets, you can switch among them easier than ever.
The "handshake" position when using a mouse for long periods of time means less strain on your wrist and forearm, and it's well worth giving a vertical mouse a try. Anker makes that easy with its offering; you get a premium product and a cheap price tag along with a wrist that isn't sore at the end of the day.
For the gamers
The ergonomic shape, lag-free 2.4GHz wireless connectivity, and soft color-changing LED lights (that can be turned off if desired) make this mouse ideal for gamers. The funky-designed computer rodent companion runs on a built-in rechargeable lithium battery and comes with a charging cable. Silent clicks mean you can game away without distracting others.
