Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 7000

 

The Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 7000 is both a cool-looking and ergonomic keyboard/mouse combo.

Beautiful look with a thin profile and an ergonomic design. Rechargeable mouse. Useful hot keys. Quick and easy wireless pairing.

Picks up smudges easily. Somewhat expensive.

Review: Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 7000

 

With the Wireless Laser Desktop 7000, Microsoft has designed a wireless keyboard and mouse that work well on the Mac, both in an aesthetic sense (especially with the aluminum iMac) and in terms of practical hands-on experience.

The Desktop 7000 uses the 2.4GHz spectrum for wireless connectivity, not Bluetooth, so that means you must attach a USB receiver to your Mac. One receiver works for both the keyboard and mouse. Microsoft claims a 30-foot range; in my testing, I had no...

Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 7000 Review

 

Microsoft has been making wireless keyboard and mouse combos for years and today we are going to take a look at its latest set. The Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 7000 is the long name for this Aero-inspired desktop. Aside from good looks, how well...

A sleek and ergonomic wireless peripheral package

Comfortable to use, looks good, lots of features

Keyboard isn't rechargeable

Another solid wireless peripheral package from Microsoft, the Wireless Laser Desktop 7000 offers a great combination of comfort, style and features. We'd have liked to see the keyboard match the mouse and come with a docking station for charging, but...

Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 7000

 

As usual, Microsoft puts together a good bit of kit. But is it good enough to beat the competition?

The biggest difference between the 7000 and its lower-numeral sibling is that this mouse comes with its own charging station. Now for those of you who, like me, who don't like perishable, non-replaceable batteries, I've some good news: this rodent uses...

Microsoft unleashes another great keyboard and moue set

Comfortable to use ; Feels great ; Shortcut keys help

Pricey for some

This is a really great keyboard and mouse set. IN fact, you'll struggle to find one better, anywhere.

Microsoft - Wireless Laser Desktop 7000

 

First impressions of this wireless keyboard and laser mouse set are positive. The mouse is quite funky-looking and the keyboard has an even more stylish appearance, with a smoked grey plastic trim around the outside. A ...

This is a quality keyboard and mouse set, with a load of thoughtful touches included to increase your desktop productivity. The only real let-downs are the small left shift key and the lack of rechargeable batteries for the keyboard (although you can...

Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 7000

 

According to Microsoft, the greatest benefits of the Wireless Laser Desktop 7000 are that it brings 'the beauty of Windows Aero' to your desktop, and that it enables instant access to Windows 3D, neither of which is reason enough for a Mac user to rush...

If you want a full-size wireless keyboard for your Mac, then you'll have to look beyond Apple, which probably means buying a keyboard designed for Windows. This one is as good as any we've tried and the extra buttons can be useful, as is the Magnify...
