Wireless Laser Desktop 6000

Thanks to a super precise laser in its belly, the mouse half of Microsoft’s Wireless Laser Desktop 6000 performs smoothly and accurately as you move the pointer around your Mac or Windows screen.

(MSNBC.com is a Microsoft-NBC joint venture.)

The keyboard is slightly curved to make for more comfortable typing, and the touch is reasonably light and quiet. The padded wrist rest can be elevated for even more comfortable typing, and dedicated keys all around can be customized to launch programs, pop directly to favorite Web sites, control and stop music and video, and put the whole works to sleep with a single touch.

Well worth the investment for anyone who, like me, cozies up to the keys for a living.
