Logitech has recently released a new keyboard-mouse combination. Logitech states that the Wireless Desktop MK710, as the set is branded, is the first bundle of input devices with a battery life of up to three years, for both the keyboard and mouse. Bearing in mind no one remembers to switch batteries until they're depleted, Logitech states this set is to make you forget batteries are used in the first place.
The keyboard is a low-profile model with a soft broad wrist and palm support. The keys feature a somewhat hollow design and a small LCD-screen on top of the board displays the satus of the Caps Lock, Scroll Lock and Num Lock keys, as well as the battery life.
Like the keyboard, the matching mouse is also wireless. The mouse uses a lasersensor, is made for righthanded users and connects wirelessly through a 2,4 GHz band using the bundled Unifying USB-receiver. The mouse is equipped with a scrollwheel that is to allow for rapid browsing through large documents and websites.
The Wireless Desktop MK710 costs about €85 and is available in both QWERTY- and AZERTY-layouts.
The MK710 is to last up to three years on a single set of batteries
