Does anyone use an Apple Magic Mouse with the Surface RT?

Just want a small, touch-enabled bluetooth mouse to use with a Surface RT - I already have a Magic Mouse, but I'll go out and get a Wedge if necessary.

If I still had my magic mouse I'd try it. I do have a Magic Tackpad still though. I'll try it and let you know, should give a good indication if the magic mouse would work or not.


I don't think it works with PCs, only Macs. Try it though first.

It works on Windows 7 and 8, so I don't see why it wouldn't work on RT since the drivers SHOULD be there.

Cheers - I'd appreciate that. :)

Just tried my Magic trackpad. It can connect to the Surface and left click works, unfortunately right click does not (even the two finger right click). Same as on my Windows 8 laptop (though there is a driver you can install for non-RT devices to get it to work properly).

I can confirm that the magic mouse works with the Surface RT, but scrolling does not. I was able to pair, left/right click on things just fine, but not scroll. Hope that helps.
