Don't-Miss Computer accessory Stories
i-Rocks' KR-6170M i-mini X-Slim offers surprisingly good typing feel for such an inexpensive keyboard, but you do get what you pay for: it offers none of the special features and extra keys that are common these days, and it has some key-layout oddities that may frustrate touch typists.
Microsoft’s small, attractive Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 is a competent wireless pointing device. If you’re running Windows on your Intel Mac, you might find it to be of more interest.
Today Mobile Mac covers two laptop bags designed with women in mind; one's a head turner and the other a back saver.
Provided you like its MacBook-like keys, Apple's wired Keyboard is a solid offering. But it's the smaller Wireless Keyboard that stands out from the crowd.
Logitech’s diNovo Edge Mac Edition is a standout keyboard thanks to its great key feel, very good layout, useful special features, and attractive design.
Tom Bihn's Zephyr is attractive and well-made, but you pay for that quality. It's best-suited for those with specific organizational needs.
The affordable RF-7550A is a good mouse—not a great mouse, but a solid five-button RF-wireless unit that at 3.5 ounces is heavy enough to be comfortable but light enough to be portable.
The ProClick Mobile takes Razer’s excellent high-precision 1,200 dpi optical resolution technology, and packages it into a smaller wireless body. The ProClick Mobile is available in four colors.
The Kensington SlimBlade Media Notebook Set is inarguably a stylish group of wireless input devices. Its three-piece matching keyboard, numeric keypad, and scroll-ball mouse would be sleek and attractive additions to any desk. Unfortunately, stylish does not necessarily mean well designed—and in this case, form forgot to follow function.
The V550 Nano Cordless Laser Mouse is a fine notebook mouse and well worth its mildly pricey admission fee.
The Sanyo Xacti HD1010 is a charming little device. Its HD video comes close to the quality produced by full-sized consumer HD camcorders, and its still photos are good enough to replace a no-frills point-and-shoot digital still camera.
With the Wireless Laser Desktop 7000, Microsoft has designed a wireless keyboard and mouse that work well on the Mac, both in an aesthetic sense (especially with the aluminum iMac) and in terms of practical hands-on experience.
Logitech’s new MX 1100 Cordless Laser Mouse isn’t as feature-filled as the MX Revolution, but it does measure up—it’s one of the better mice I’ve ever used.
Road warriors who pack a mouse into a laptop bag want something small and durable, like Microsoft’s Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse 3000 Special Edition. Despite its small size, it’s a comfortable mouse that tracks well.
Macally’s Pebble Wireless is a decent mouse that greatly benefits from versatile software. Also, if having the ability to switch tracking speed on-the-fly interests you, this mouse can accomplish that trick, as well.
