As per logitech product pages:
K270 comes with a unifying receiver;
Mouse M310 comes with non-unifying receiver.
I plan to use both of these with my 2011 MacBook Pro.
Coming to the point, I need to know if i would able to use both of these with the unifying receiver that comes with the K270 keyboard without using the Logitech Control Center utility.
That is to say, would both of these devices pair with the same unifying receiver without using LLC?

"M310 unit comes with: Unifying Mouse M310 + Non-Unifying receiver.
The M310 mouse is programmed to 'understand' both receivers but can only be paired to a receiver one at a time.
Say, you have both receivers in the active computer(s) and near by, you won't be able to pair M310 to another receiver.
1. If M310 is currently paired to Unifying receiver, unpair it with Unifying software in advanced mode then it can be paired to other receiver
2. If M310 is currently paired to Non-Unifying receiver, remove the receiver from the active system.
3. Paring M310 mouse to (new) receiver:
-If it will be paired to an Unifying receiver, use the Unifying software (Pairing Utility) and follow the on-screen instructions
-If It will be paired to its packaged receiver, use connectutility.exe / connect.exe in SetPoint folder and follow the on-screen instruction
If you don't have SetPoint:
Standalone Connection utility can be downloaded here:
The answer is, yes the M310 can be paired to your K270 receiver using the Unifying Software. If you later want the to pair the M310 with the original nano receiver, the Logitech Connection Utility would need to be used.
