If you’re still looking for accessories to perfect your home office setup or boost your gaming rig, you can’t forget about your mouse. After all, working on a laptop trackpad for long hours can be difficult. We’ve put together some of the best mouse deals available for Cyber Monday to help you reach a decision.
Just like our list of the best monitor deals, mice can be divided into two basic categories: Office and gaming. Office mice are often ergonomic and wireless, though they typically only have a few buttons. Gaming mice, on the other hand, have programmable buttons that you can use to grab the upper hand in games.
Best mouse deals
Many of our office mice are from Logitech, while Razer is a go-to for gaming equipment. All of these deals were live at the time of writing, but we’ll update the list as we find new options.
Office mouse deals
What you look for in an office mouse is much more fundamental than in a gaming mouse, which is why they’re generally a lot cheaper. At a basic level, you’re looking for durability, portability, and long battery life. For example, the Logitech M705 can last up to three years on a single battery.
If you want to refine that further, you can look for features such as three-device connectivity and laser-grade tracking, such as that of the Logitech MX Anywhere 2S wireless mouse. Our own Lily Katz named the MX Anywhere 2S as one of seven things that she uses every day.

Logitech pretty much has computer mice figured out. Each one includes a unifying receiver that can be paired to other Logitech mice and keyboards as you upgrade. That said, it’s hard to beat the beautiful aesthetic of the Microsoft Arc Mouse.

Gaming mouse deals
What to look for in the perfect gaming mouse depends on your gaming style, but several features are key. You’ll want to ensure that your mouse is designed with FPS gaming in mind so precise accuracy and glide is important. Customization is also essential for some games, with the better gaming mice offering a range of DPI settings and programmable buttons so that you can set it to your optimum style.
In terms of build, you’re looking for ergonomics that suit your grip, and durability in the buttons so that they hold up as you’re hammering them mid-shootout. Battery life is a factor as well to avoid losing power at critical moments. If the rest of your gaming setup has a cool RGB lighting to it, then it’s nice to have a gaming mouse that offers the same type of lighting.
Logitech might have office mice figured out, but Razer has a fair slice of the market on gaming mice. After all, the Razer DeathAdder Elite — $10 off on Amazon right now — is one of the best-selling gaming mice of all time.
