If you're in the market for a new wireless mouse, you've got a lot options. The first thing you need to decide is what kind of mouse you want. Do you a travel mouse? An ergonomic mouse? A gaming mouse? Or a traditional mouse that can simply help you be more productive?

After that, you need to decide how much you want to spend. The good news is that wireless mouse aren't exactly new anymore, and because there are so many options out there you can buy one for pretty cheap. Say, less than $30. You can also spend a lot more than that, too.

The last thing is to make sure that your wireless mouse works for you and your current workstation. Not every wireless mouse is fully compatible with both Mac and Windows ecosystems. And some, like pairing Apple's Magic Mouse with a PC, just don't make much sense.

Below, we've rounded up the best wireless mice — from traditional to ergonomic, gaming to travel-sized — to upgrade your current workstation.
