Five years ago, gaming on a Mac was practically a joke. Very few titles were ever ported over prior to Apple's move to Intel chips, but it's clear that things have changed dramatically since Intel came into the picture. This week, Logitech announced that its new range of "G" accessories will support OS X. The new lineup, which includes six redesigned mice and keyboard favorites and two new headsets, will be available for you to own later this month.

Now, Logitech Gaming Software (LGS) has been updated to support OS X. Now Mac gamers can enjoy the same great personalization and customized control our PC customers have come to reply on. You can download the latest version of LGS from the Logitech support page for each compatible product.

So much for plug-n-play technology, eh?


Every move Apple makes towards the gaming crowd puzzles me entirely. They shunned gaming for so long that every move in that direction seems dodgy to me.


I just love how my MX518 keeps hanging around and being relevant even though they do not make them anymore.


You might be interested to know that the Logitech G400 is the updated MX518. I owned an MX518 and when it died, I attempted to find an MX518 to replace it with. They were already out of production, so I tried a G500. It was a fine mouse, but it fell short of the perfection that was the MX518. Then I found out about the G400 and bought one of those. My kids now have the G500 and I use my G400.

Logitech has the G400s on their website now, which is a slightly newer version of the G400 (I have the standard G400). In any case, you ought to check it out should your trusty MX518 give up the ghost.


Yeah I have known about them for awhile. I won't switch until mine breaks. I've read reviews and looked them over and honestly from what I have seen it looks like that the G400 is a good replacement but not something superior so ill just wait for now. My current MX518 has barely 2 years on it so its going strong atm.
