MS Aero Keyboard Combos

Microsoft today hoped to translate the visuals of Windows Vista into a new pair of keyboard and mouse sets. Though they work with most any USB-equipped computer, the Wireless Laser Desktop 7000 (shown) and wired Digital Media Keyboard 3000 are styled after the Aero Glass interface found in Microsoft's own operating system and incorporate shortcuts designed for the platform. The 7000 includes shortcut keys for Favorites in Vista on the ergonomic keyboard itself along with a Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 that has a button usable for task switching through Flip 3D (also reusable in other operating systems).

The Digital Media Keyboard 3000 makes up for its cabled nature with additional shortcuts, Microsoft says: in addition to the Favorites feature, the straight-shaped keyboard also sports media keys, image zoom, and a Flip 3D switcher along the edges. The premium Wireless Laser Desktop ships first in April for $130 and will be followed by the Digital Media Keyboard in June for $30.
