Microsoft Introduces Desktop Keyboard and Mouse Designed Exclusively for Mac Users
Microsoft has announced the availability of the Wireless Laser Desktop for Mac, its first Mac-specific desktop complete with a wireless Comfort Curve Keyboard and a wireless high definition laser mouse. The silver finish complements the Mac design.

The key layout is consistent with Mac-only keyboards. Currently this is Microsoft’s only keyboard without the Windows Start button. The Wireless Laser Desktop for Mac is compatible with the new Intel-based Mac machines as well as PowerPC models, and has Hot Keys that map to Mac programs such as iTunes and iPhoto.

For greater comfort at work or in the home, the Wireless Laser Desktop for Mac’s Comfort Curve Keyboard encourages natural hand and wrist positioning in an easy-to-use layout. Mac users will find the following key features in this new set:

  • Mac Modifier Keys. Control, Option and Command buttons are right where users need them.
  • Zoom Slider. Consumers can zoom in for a closer look at digital pictures, maps and more.
  • My Favourites Keys. Five keys that can be customized to instantly bring up favourite photos, folders, files and Web pages.
  • Eject key. This key enables users to easily eject CDs and DVDs.
  • Hot Keys. These buttons offer one-touch, immediate access to programs consumers use the most, including those for e-mail, chat, music, photos and the Web.

    The Wireless Laser Desktop for Mac features a silver wireless high definition laser mouse. The mouse utilizes Microsoft’s Intelligent Tracking System for smoother tracking without interruptions or skipping, even over unique surfaces. The mouse also features a Tilt Wheel for navigating and viewing documents and spreadsheets.

    The Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop for Mac will be available from late July for a recommended retail price of NZ$199.00.
