Microsoft pushes comfort with new mouse/keyboard set

MS Natural Ergo 7000

Microsoft today unveiled a new wireless desktop combo that focuses on comfort for those who use their PCs for long stretches. The Natural Ergonomic Desktop 7000 bundles the Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 and the Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 into a single pack that the company hopes will reduce strain. The keyboard's gull-wing design brings fingers closer to the individual keys while also including programmable keys that save work when checking mail or the web; the mouse brings precise laser tracking as well as a grip that shifts pressure away from muscles that cause carpal tunnel syndrome, according to Microsoft.

Both peripherals use a 2.4GHz RF-based wireless system with a USB adapter to let either device work on a basic level without drivers, and come with built-in battery indicators to warn in advance when a battery swap is needed. Microsoft ships the two-piece $150 set in July but should be available for pre-order from Amazon soon.
