I was looking on eBay for the Apple Magic Mouse. I then come across a 3rd party mouse identical to the Apple branded mouse. It is a very cheapo mouse; only $12.90 like this one here: 2.4G Ultra Thin Wireless RF Mouse Magic Multi-touch Scroll Mice Wheel+Receiver | eBay It does not state that it is Mac compatible. My question is would it still work on my MacBook? I would assume it would being that it uses USB.

It's obviously a Chinese knockoff. We wouldn't know if it works, but the chances are good that IF it works, it won't work well.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
