The Gist

I'm glad you clicked on this post, because you won't regret buying this mouse. It can do everything that the Apple magic mouse can't -in case you're a Mac OS user- and if you're a software developer, a designer, or a spreadsheet wizard (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), the Logitech MX Master 3 will leave you in awe with all the customizations that it offers, so let's explore five reasons why this will be your next loved computer mouse.

1. Ultra-fast scrolling speed

The scroll wheel on this mouse comes with what Logitech calls the Electromagnetic MagSpeed wheel. This special wheel can scroll 90% faster than a regular mouse. This is some mind blowing speed!. One thing I've noticed though is that the sweat of your fingers can make that cool steel looking wheel a bit green so try to clean it sometimes if you think your hands are a little sweaty. Regardless or that I've never seen any loss in usability or speed, which again, it is some serious sh*t!

2. App-specific customizations

Calling out photographers, videographers, spreadsheet wizards, designers, developers, you name it. Working on Final Cut Pro? No problem, you can pan, undo & redo, or horizontally scroll with the same buttons that lets you go back & forth and navigate between tabs or even open a link in a new tab in any browser. The app specific customizations are really dope, and Apple is calling their mouse magic? This Logitech mouse is the real magic!

3. Multiple computers, one flow

Do you have a gaming station and a work-laptop? Well, this mouse will allow you to control both devices simply by moving your cursor to the edge of the screen. What, it's that easy? Yes Sr., you can do this even between Windows and Mac OS operating systems. The Logitech team came up with the “Logi Options” software which you download, install, and then you enable the flow option that allows you to copy files between both devices. Have in mind that they need to be paired with the mouse first and be in the same network, meaning they should be connected to the same Wi-Fi at home. With these two couple of steps you can easily transfer anything using a secure SSL, AWS-256 bit encryption connection.

4. USB-C to USB-C Charging

After I'll tell you this you'd throw away your apple magic mouse, answer me: Can you use it while it's chaging? Aaaaannnddd...nope, you can't use the Apple Magic mouse, but the Logitech, you certainly can. And 1 full charge last up to 70 days, I'll tell you more, if you charge it for just 1 minute it will last 3 hours. That's it, you can't beat that.

5. Works with an Ipad

What? No way...Yes, you can even use it with an Ipad that currently runs iPadOS. 😮😮😮   So if you need to work on the go you can get a nice iPad keyboard like this and then get the Logitech mouse and you'll be using your iPad like a pro computer.
