Logitech wireless keyboard, mouse combo boasts three-year battery life

The just-announced Wireless Desktop MK710 is Logitech's latest addition to its input device family.


Just announced today, the Wireless Desktop MK710 is Logitech's latest addition to its input device family. At $99, this keyboard and mouse combo offers an inexpensive incentive to get rid of those clumsy peripherals that came bundled with your desktop computer. Logitech also claims that the combo can get more than three years of juice from four AA batteries, but we'll see for ourselves with the test unit on the way.

The new keyboard incorporates Logitech's Incurve concave key design and cushioned palm rest to alleviate unnecessary pressure on your wrists; an integrated LCD dashboard up top shows pertinent info about battery, Caps Lock, Num Lock, and more. Even better, both the mouse and the keyboard use a Unifying microreceiver that works in conjunction with up to six other Logitech input devices on the same port, thus reducing clutter and freeing up precious USB ports on your PC.

Look for a full review of the Wireless Desktop MK710 coming soon, but in the meantime be sure to check out a roundup of our favorite aftermarket keyboards.
