Microsoft hardware galore!

Microsoft hardware galore!

Today, Microsoft officially announced a slew of keyboards, mice, and desktop sets. As with most other input device manufacturers, Microsoft has jumped on the laser bandwagon, with its Wireless Laser Desktop 6000, which pairs a Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 and a multimedia keyboard, the Wireless Notebook Laser Mouse 6000, and Microsoft's first gaming mouse, the Laser Mouse 6000.

And, if that's not enough names and numbers for you, Microsoft also released a group of laser-less mice: Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse 4000, Notebook Optical Mouse 3000, Wireless Optical Mouse 5000, and Comfort Optical Mouse 3000. Two ergonomic keyboards, the Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 and the Comfort Curve Keyboard 2000, round out this hardware line.

One extra feature Microsoft added to this crop of mice is a magnifier button that allows you to highlight a square of the screen and enlarge it for easier reading or data entry. Otherwise, the keyboards and mice offer the same general functionality we've seen from Microsoft hardware in the past. We'll have reviews of some of these products up soon, so keep an eye out.
