I'm purchasing 4 laptops and plan on getting a wireless mouse for each of them. Assuming they are all in the same room, will 4 of these wireless mice interfere with each other?

If you get bluetooth ones - generally no as they are paired together using a unique id... some cheap wireless ones will be affected by wireless (2.4Ghz) networks so avoid them..  Just try and get good quality mice, especially if they have some sort of pairing or unique ID systems and u should be OK

Hello tvacc,

RF wireless mice should work in the same room without any issues.

Bestest,

For the record I purchased 4 Logitech V220 Laptop RF Wirless mice and they all worked fine in the same room. Thanks.
