Microsoft launches series of new laptop accessories
Microsoft says notebook sales are now outpacing desktop PCs three to one in some markets, and to meet that growth, the Microsoft Hardware Group is entering a new category of notebook accessories.

The group is introducing the Notebook Cooling Base (pictured), designed to make notebook use more comfortable with a built-in fan and sleek form.

The Notebook Cooling Base provides reliable cooling with a built-in fan and a cooling channel to prevent overheating. The base is easy to use with any notebook and is contoured to rest on both desks and users’ laps, providing a comfortable typing angle. The Notebook Cooling Base has a slim, portable design at only 1.16 inches thick, a cable management clip to allow the cable to be neatly stored when not in use, and is USB-powered so no batteries are needed.

The base will be available in white and black and will be available in July for an estimated retail price of US$29.95 in the U.S.

Microsoft Corp. is also responding to the rapid success of the Arc Mouse, by releasing the mouse in four special edition colors: deep olive green, marine blue, eggplant purple and frost white.

Color continues to be an important factor for consumers when buying electronics, according to Colorcom consultant Jill Morton. “People form a personal connection to a product in a color they like,” Morton said.
