[Staples] Logitech MX Anywhere - $39.99

Similar to BestBuy's original MX Master deal recently, Staples seems to have the original MX Anywhere for $39.99 which is a pretty hot price compared to the 2S right now.
Great portable mouse to have and mine has been serving me for a while.

Is this Bluetooth or requires the dongle?

I believe this one is unifying receiver only, and MX Anywhere 2 is when they added BT.

Thanks OP. I like this model because it has a built-in storage compartment for the dongle. The later models (2, 2s) removed the compartment because they've added BT.

I bought the MX Anywhere 2 (with Bluetooth and unifying) from BestBuy for around the same price a few days ago. if you don’t need Bluetooth this is a good price. If there is a chance you might need Bluetooth in the near future I’d wait for a deal on the 2 or 2s.

Legit question - how often do you remove the dongle? I leave my unify dongles in each machine and just move the mouse to each.

The dongle is small enough that it won't need to be removed on a laptop. So from my personal experience, the only time I needed to remove the dongle & carry it with the mouse is if I am planning to use it on another computer elsewhere.

I would go with first gen MX over MX2 as this mouse is known for developing double click issue. MX has 3 years warranty while MX2 has 1 year.

The M585 is similar to this one, being small and compact, but it's bluetooth and 2.4ghz Unifying dongle compatible and has storage for the dongle. It goes on sale for $40 sometimes (I got mine from Staples for that much back in November)
the MX Anywhere would be slightly better for games (seems like you can change between 400/1200 dpi, whereas M585 is 1000dpi), but it needs 2x AA and the battery life isn't as good (M585 boasts 1x AA and 12 month battery life). The M585 is also Logitech Flow compatible (letting you use the mouse across two systems simultaneously, PC or MAC)

My laptop has only 2 USB ports. It's usually docked and I use a full size wired mouse with it. It's only when I need to undock it and use it temporarily elsewhere that I plug in the dongle.

Ah I see - I have the same thing with my tiny work Dell - you need to pick up a full sized unify logitech mouse so there is no need to remove dongle ;)

Does this version have the non standard scroll wheel click?

I'm surprised they still sell this one, must be old stock. Having used both this and the anywhere 2 I'd go for the 2 when on sale. 3-device Bluetooth, Pico 2.4ghz dongle (smaller than nano), rechargeable and lighter weight. But gen 1 is still good if you just need something solid that tracks on glass.
