Best mice for ASUS Chromebook CX9: Logitech, Seenda, and more

The ASUS Chromebook CX9 is an absolute beast. With an Intel 11th generation Tiger Lake processor and up to 16GB of RAM, this is the best overall Chromebook you can buy today. To harness all that power, you’ll definitely need a few accessories. When you get to the office or back home, you can transform the CX9 into a full workstation with an external monitor, mouse, and keyboard. And that’s not all, you can also add a USI pen for note taking, a dock for improved connectivity and more. In this article we’ll focus on mice, running down some of the best options available for the CX9.

XDA VIDEO OF THE DAY

When shopping for a new mouse to pair with your favorite Chromebook, comfort is king. In this list, we’ll prioritize the comfortable operation of each mouse over other advanced features. After considering day-to-day usage, we’ll look at battery life, price point, and of course integration with Chrome OS. Mice come in all shapes and sizes, so it’s worth viewing a large volume of options before reaching a final decision.

    Best budget mouse

    If you need a wireless mouse on a budget, Seenda has you covered. This mouse lacks some bells and whistles, but costs under $6 and has a comfortable design. Battery life is excellent on this device. For those who only use a mouse on occasion, this is the way to go.

    Best slim and flat design

    Some mice require you to choose whether you are left or right handed, but not the Logitech M355. This mouse has a slim and flat design, perfect for ambidextrous users. In addition, the slim profile and ultra-quiet clicks make this a great mouse to use at work.

    Best bluetooth and 2.4GHz combo

    The Jelly Comb dual mode mouse features both bluetooth and 2.4GHz wireless connectivity. With this, you can connect to two devices simultaneously. Jelly Comb has a number of great color options to choose from, with a price under $15.

    Best for trackball fans

    Logitech's M570 has a distinct and instantly recognizable form-factor. The giant teal trackball is easily spotted while the mouse is in use. If you do a lot of scrolling for work, and find a trackball comfortable, this is the best option by far. This is one of the most comfortable mice to use for long periods of time.

    Best mouse and keyboard bundle

    Bundles are never a bad thing in terms of value. Jelly Comb packages an excellent wireless keyboard and mouse combo for under $25. Both devices feature excellent battery life, and an auto sleep mode when not in use.

    Best noiseless mouse

    Keeping quiet while at work is sometimes important. If you're looking for a mouse that's virtually silent, Geyes has you covered. This lightweight mouse is also rechargeable and features a comfortable honeycomb design. Friends and family will surely notice the eye-catching design on your new mouse.

    Best for productivity

    The Logitech MX Master series is the industry standard for what a mouse should be. Ultra-fast mag speed scrolling, ergonomic design and app-specific customization make this an ultra-premium pick. With USB-C quick charging and the ability to work on glass surfaces, this is a mouse you can use anywhere.

    Best for gaming on a budget

    The BENGOO gaming mouse provides an RGB light show to highlight your gaming atmosphere. A speed DPI switch allows four adjustable settings. This mouse is also great value, with an ergonomic design, flexible buttons, and a price tag below $10.

    Best battery life

    Logitech obviously has several options when it comes to mice. The M510 is a standout thanks to its consistent rating as a battery life champ. Users report a year or more average use on a single charge. With a comfortable design and a price under $25, this is an excellent option.

    Best for Arc lovers on a budget

    There are many fans of Microsoft's Arc mouse design. Unfortunately, the official Microsoft Arc mouse doesn't play nice with Chromebooks. If you enjoy the design of Microsoft's mouse, the NORMIA RITA Arc mouse is a great substitute at less than half the price.

    Best vertical mouse

    Another popular form factor is the vertical mouse design. This layout allows you to use the mouse in a grip-like orientation. Many users find this to be the most comfortable way to use a mouse for long periods of time. Anker also packs a fantastic feature set and battery life into this unique design.

    Best curved vertical mouse

    If you find the Anker vertical mouse a bit too tall or rigid, iClever has another exciting option. This vertical mouse features a more dramatic curve that contours to the hand at a more shallow angle. At under $25, with whisper quiet keys, this mouse is great for home or work.

That’s our roundup of the best mice for the ASUS Chromebook CX9. Hopefully you now have the perfect mouse to use your Chromebook in class, at home, or on the go. Our top choice for the ASUS Chromebook CX9 is definitely the Logitech MX Master 3 mouse. If you try out some of our picks, let us know how they work for you in the comments section below.
