I use this with my MacBook Pro.
The touchpad on the MacBook Pro, after using a PowerBook was just way over the top. The touchpad on the MacBook Pro is far too sensitive and simply was out of control- sending emails without my realizing it; opening apps. selecting undesired objects; I did not find a software or support solution. At a recent users group meeting I noticed that the presenter was using a mouse with her MacBook Pro, so I assume she like so many others out there had issues with the touchpad. Got this mouse and voila! No more accidental emails etc etc. Highly recommend this solution.

I bought this mouse for my Macbook Pro 17" late 2011. After reading most of the reviews on here, I decided this is it.

Installation was fine (you need to download the software to support this mouse from Logitech website, the disk has outdated version), and the mouse connected without any problem. It is very comfortable size for me and when it works I am very happy with it.

Week latter after, I am starting to have problems with the mouse. The bluetooth connection is being disconnected for no apparent reason, to the point that I had to un-pair the connection and reconnect it, to get the mouse working again.

I tried to uninstall the supporting software and reinstall it, but that didn't help. I pair the mouse with my mac few times, but no help.

There for only 2 stars.

PS: in the time I wrote this up, the mouse disconnected and connected 3 times :s (fun world)

My Mouse Has No Tail

    Comments about Logitech V470A Cordless Laser Notebook Mouse (Apple):

    I have 2 USB ports on my Mac, so I needed a bluetooth mouse to free up one port. It works good and it's nice to have one less cord on the desk. After my Mac found the mouse originally, all I have to do when I turn the computer on is to wiggle the mouse and my Mac finds it right away, I don't have to hit the connect button. Ergonomically feels good, seems solid enough, but the battery door is a little bit tricky. Very happy with my purchase.

    I use it with complicated motion and video editors.

    Not good for IMac

      Comments about Logitech V470A Cordless Laser Notebook Mouse (Apple):

      This mouse probably works great with Mac Notebooks but thought I would give it a try for my home IMac. Caused some energy save issues and lost connection repeatedly. I returned it and went with the Apple Magic Mouse and love it so far. Thanks B&H Photo Video for making it quick and easy for me to return and get a product that better fit my needs!

          Purchased to pair with 2011 Macbook Air / Lion. Bluetooth interface to avoid using a usb port for one of the nano transmitters. Works as expected. No problems in the past 3 weeks of use.
