Logitech V550 Nano cordless laser mouse for notebooks: Many people prefer a mouse to a touchpad but often leave the mouse behind when moving from room to room. Logitech changed all that with the introduction of the Logitech V550 Nano cordless laser mouse for notebooks. Featuring the easy-to-attach, easy-to-remove Clip-and-Go dock, the V550 Nano can be clipped to your laptop – giving you more freedom when you move around at home or at work. For added convenience, the V550 Nano also offers 18 months of battery life and the Plug-and-Forget Nano-receiver. Because you often work in busy wireless environments, Logitech's advanced 2.4 GHz wireless technology provides a powerful, reliable connection that effectively eliminates delays and dropouts.
Logitech MX1100 cordless laser mouse: The Logitech MX1100 cordless laser mouse is designed to support the naturally curved shape of your hand. The elegantly contoured, full-size shape fits your hand for maximum comfort, providing exceptional palm support. The MX1100 mouse offers eight programmable buttons, enabling you to get to the information, the Web pages, the files and the applications you want – fast. With software installed, a stealth thumb button makes applications switching easy. Zoom controls allow for zooming in and out of a document with the push of a button. The mouse features an adjustable-dpi laser engine (up to 1600 dpi), which provides two smooth-tracking modes for customizable precision. The MX1100 mouse also employs Logitech's advanced 2.4 GHz wireless for a powerful, reliable connection.
Logitech Illuminated keyboard: The Logitech Illuminated Keyboard makes typing easy – even in the dark. To optimise existing backlight technology, Logitech combined microlens reflectors, a multilayer painting process and laser etching – creating an experience that is brighter, sharper and easier to read. Whether you're typing an e-mail or chatting with a friend, the adjustable backlight gives you just the right amount of light. With its transparent frame, the ultra-thin Illuminated Keyboard (.37 inches or 9.3 mm from base to frame) adds an elegant touch to any desk.
Logitech Pure-Fi Express Plus iPod/iPhone Omnidirectional speaker: A first for iPod or iPhone speaker docks, the Logitech Pure-Fi Express Plus speaker offers omnidirectional acoustics. An innovative speaker technology previously found only in expensive home-theatre systems, omnidirectional acoustics transmit sound evenly in all directions. If you love to dock, charge and listen to your iPod or iPhone when you're at home, at work, or even in your backyard, now you can enjoy rich, articulate sound and minimal distortion – from every corner of your room.
