Apple Desktop Bus Mouse II

The Apple Desktop Bus Mouse II was the third major redesign in ten years. This was the first mouse to have rounded curves rather than the previous rectangular shape and straight-lines. The so-called tear-drop mouse, was essentially the same as its predecessor but with a new case subsequently held as the ideal shape of mice. Indeed, the basic design has persevered into current models, as well as being widely adopted by other mouse manufacturers.

It was included with all Macintosh desktop computers from 1993 until 1998. It was also the first mouse produced by Apple in black to match the Macintosh TV as well as the Performa 5420 sold in black.

This model is Family No. M2707 and is grey in colour.
