Wireless Laser Desktop for Mac

Originally uploaded by brianjo.

First, I should disclaim this post by saying that I work for the division that makes this product, but I’m not involved in the production or marketing for it. That out of the way, I wanted to share my thoughts about the Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop for Mac.

I was able to get my hands on this a couple of weeks ago. The bottom line is that I’m really enjoying using this keyboard/mouse set. I was previously using the Apple Bluetooth keyboard and mouse with my MacBook Pro, and I was actually fairly happy with that setup. I’ve tried to use regular Windows keyboards with my Macs before, but I don’t usually find the experience very good due to the layout of the keys. When you use the MacBook Pro a lot, you get pretty used to the Mac keys any anything else feels a little funny.

The Wireless Laser Desktop for Mac is built with the right keys for Mac users and so typing on it is a breeze. The keyboard itself is slightly curved, and the mouse has a nice ergonomic feel to it and so while it takes a little getting used to, I find it a bit more comfortable to use than the Apple mouse. The wheel and the extra buttons are nice also.

The only negative about this setup is that it should really be a Bluetooth device. It’s not. Plugging in the wireless adapter isn’t a huge deal, but it would be so much better if it was Bluetooth and I didn’t have to think about reconnecting anything in when I come back to a meeting. Most Macs come with Bluetooth, so I don’t even think you would need to include a dongle or anything in the box. That’s a suggestion I’m going to pass on to the hardware team. šŸ™‚

All in all, I’m quit happy with this setup, and I’ve even added one of these sets to my iMac.

    A couple f things I wish it had:
    – Bluetooth, as you mentioned, of course. Don’t hesitate to tell the hardware fols it’d be welcome. Actually a bluetooth driver for the existing bluetooth MS mouse would be great…..
    – more of an angle between the left and right sections (such as in some of the other natural keyboards MS makes). I really like "more" natural keyboards.

    Beside that it’s a pretty good product. I especially like the MS mice that have this shape. They feel quite nice: proper shape and weight, proper placement for the buttons. Nice!
