The new M2 Mac mini packs the powerful Apple M2 chipset, which features an 8-core CPU and 10-core GPU, making it the fastest entry-level Mac on the market. The best part is that compared to older Mac minis, Apple had dropped the price of the M2 Mac mini by $100, meaning you can snatch it up at the low entry price of only $599. Along with the M2 Mac mini, for the first time, Apple has launched the M2 Pro Mac mini, which gives you even faster performance.
To keep the prices low, Apple has never shipped any accessories with Mac mini, and the case remains true here. You will need to invest in your mouse, keyboard, and external monitor to use the M2 Mac mini. While we will cover the keyboard and external monitors in future guides, here are the best mice for the M2 Mac mini and M2 Pro Mac mini you can buy.

1. Logitech MX Master 3S
The Logitech MX Master 3S mouse for M2 and M2 Pro Mac mini is the best mouse you can buy if you don’t care about the cost. Available in pale grey and graphite colors, the Logitech MX Master 3S packs an 8K DPI sensor with customizable sensitivity. That means no matter what sensitivity range you prefer, you can set the MX Master 3S to it and get the best tracking experience.
Logitech has also improved the click mechanism by leaps and bounds. The new Quiet Click buttons give the same satisfying feedback as the past generation of this mouse while reducing the audible noise by up to 90%. You will also enjoy the new Magspeed scrolling, which is now 90% faster, 87% more precise, and super quiet.
While all these features are excellent, what makes the Logitech MX Master 3S the best M2 Mac mini mouse you can buy is its ergonomics. You get a comfortable hand position that keeps your wrist and fingers relaxed, allowing you to work for hours without feeling any fatigue.
2. Apple Magic Mouse
If you enjoy using macOS gestures, the Apple Magic Mouse will give you the best experience. While the Magic Mouse doesn’t have the best ergonomics, its seamless integration with the macOS system makes it one of the best M2 Mac mini mice you can buy. The mouse connects wirelessly with your M2 and M2 Pro Mac mini and doesn’t require any wireless dongles.
You don’t have to worry about battery life, as a single charge will last from 6 to 8 weeks. It is a rechargeable mouse, so there’s no need to keep batteries, albeit the charging port is in the worst possible location, so you cannot charge and use the mouse at the same time.
The Magic Mouse has a multi-touch surface that allows you to execute all the macOS gestures for scrolling and swiping. It is viable in two colors; black and white.
3. Razer Pro Click Mini
One of our favorite M2 Mac mini mice is the Razer Pro Click Mini. The mouse packs silent mechanical switches which give satisfying clicks without making noise, giving you a quiet and distraction-free experience. The mouse buttons are durable and have been tested to last up to 15 million clicks.
You are going to love the Razer Pro Click Mini’s scroll wheel. It allows you to switch between free-spin mode and tactile mode allowing for both fast and precise scrolling. It also packs a tilt-click mechanism that helps in horizontal scrolling, making it perfect for users who work with large Excel or Numbers sheets.
You can connect the mouse to up to 4 devices at once and seamlessly switch between them without going through the whole pairing and unpairing process. The mouse gives you seven independently programmable buttons, allowing you to execute your macros.There’s no doubt that the Razer Pro Click Mini is an excellent mouse. We also love the looks and compact design of the mouse and recommend it without any qualms.
4. Microsoft Bluetooth ergonomic mouse
If you want an ergonomic mouse but cannot afford the MX Master 3S, we recommend the Microsoft Bluetooth ergonomic mouse. Available in 4 beautiful colors, the mouse features a comfortable ergonomic design with a soft and easy-to-grip thumb rest that gets your wrist and fingers in a comfortable position.
The mouse features a Teflon base with a precise tracking sensor that can easily glide over the majority of desk surfaces, including wood and metal. We still recommend investing in a mouse pad, but if you don’t have one, it will work without issues. The mouse is light and durable and offers 3 customizable buttons for macros.
5. Satechi mouse for M2 Mac mini
Satechi makes some of the best accessories for Apple products, including USB-C to Ethernet adapters, USB-C hubs, wires and dongles, and more. Its mouse for the M2 Mac mini and MacBook Pros is also a good option to consider. The mouse features a simple oval shape and sleek aluminum design, and is available in blue, gold, rose gold, silver, and space gray colors.
While its 1200 DPI sensor cannot match the precision of the premium mice featured above, it’s not something that most users will be able to notice and differentiate. We love that the mouse features a built-in battery that charges via a USB-C port. The mouse is ambidextrous, so whether you are lefty or righty, you can use this mouse without issues.
6. Logitech M330 Silent Plus
If you want an ultra-affordable mouse for your M2 Mac mini, check out the Logitech M330 Silent Plus. The mouse produces 90% less clicking noise compared to other mice in its price range, giving you a silent work environment. We also love the design of the mouse, as it’s very comfortable to use for long hours, something that we cannot say about other mice in the sub-$15 price range. It offers good tracking and scrolling, and we never experienced any trouble using it. If you cannot spend more than $20 on a mouse, this is the one to get.
