You use one mouse with one computer. That’s been the standard workflow for the quintessential PC peripheral. With more resource-intensive programs nowadays, however, we’re increasingly seeing people work with multiple computers at the same time and using different peripherals to control them can get confusing. Logitech’s MX line of mouse accessories offer an alternative.
Designed to work with the outfit’s Logitech Flow software, the mice can control up to three computers at the same time. Pair it with one of those Bluetooth keyboards that can switch from one machine to another and you’ll never have to use multiple peripherals for a multi-PC setup again.
The new release consists of the Logitech MX Master 2S and MX Anywhere 2S, both of which support the multi-machine Flow software. Not only can you control all three computers with the same mouse, you can even cut and paste files between them easily, essentially allowing you to use three computers as if they’re one. Both mouse models boast an impressive resolution of 4,000 DPI, along with precise tracking on any surface (even glass).
As for what sets the two apart, the MX Master 2S is designed for office use, with an adaptive scroll wheel, a thumb wheel, and an integrated wrist rest. The MX Anywhere 2S, on the other hand, is designed for portable use, with a precision wheel that can switch between click-to-click and high-speed scrolling.
Slated to drop in June, the Logitech MX Master 2S and the Logitech MX Anywhere 2S are priced at $99.99 and $79.99, respectively.
