Apple Mouse IIc on Mac?

Recommended Posts

Yes. The mice between the two are *almost* completely compatible.


(Short version, the very oldest Mac mice don't work on the IIc because of a minor wiring omission, but later ones do; the IIc mouse is just a later-model Mac mouse in a different color case. So if it works on the IIc should be fine on the Mac. As a reverse example, the mice that came with my 512k and Plus both work fine on the IIc.)

Cool. Yeah, it's sort of confusing, especially since the early models of the IIc mouse even carry the same model number as the Mac-styled mice that may or may not work. (I'm curious how many of the Mac mice *don't* work. When I tried the three I had on the IIc I started with the one with the highest serial number, and then just for laughs worked backwards. All the ones I had in my possession did.)
