Do you need a mouse for the Apple MacBook
« on: May 03, 2019, 01:01:26 PM »
As the title says my dad wants this Apple MacBook (he’s getting rid of his laptop) and he is wondering if you can use a mouse with the MacBook (he’s keeping the mouse from his laptop)

Depends on the mouse, but it looks like it should work.

Is it a new macbook?

Using an old mouse:
Yes and no.

The macbook only has 1 USB C port.

If the mouse is wired (USB A), you will need a dongle for a conversion. :P Only one spot for that dongle to go into to... the USB C port needed for charging.

And some off brand dongles w multiple ports I hear thwart the charge... sooo.. I dunno.

This is a product that pushes wireless technologies.

Do you need a mouse, like the topic says. No. It has a trackpad

Picture of the mouse doesn't matter.

model of the computer matters. By new -- I meant the newer model. The whole USB C issue has been going on for over a year.

Well, first, the macbook pro is not the same as a macbook.

I wouldn't really recommend a macbook pro to someone who is not using it for something beyond casual computer use. The macbook line and macbook air are cheaper-- and do just as well.

I'm sorry I don't know what a macbook 7 is... I'm used to people using terms like "mid2014" to discuss their models. :/

Since I don't know what computer it is-- if it comes with a USB port, it's fine.



Is it this one:
a 13inch 2010?

That's the only one I see that is "7", found on this support page
https://support.apple.com/en-jo/HT201300

It has 2 USBs..

My dad decided that he doesn’t want one now because he has windows 10 pro on his laptop now.
