So, I went to Staples because I was in need of a new keyboard because the dog chewed my old keyboards wire. They had wireless stuff there, I wanted to go wireless just for the geeky factor and for when I lug my pc out to the living room I dont have to worry about the dog knocking my stuff over when she trips over the cords or if she decides to chew something again (crackhead dog).
What they had at Staples was the wireless duo but I didnt think it was the one paired with the MX 700 mouse, the sales guy didnt push it or explain it more either so I ended up with a Microsoft Multimedia Natural, dont get me wrong its a decent keyboard.. I was actually going there to see if they had Microsofts Bluetooth enabled Keyboard+Mouse, not to buy it but just to look. Bluetooths range is around 3ft or something like that. And not to mention probably way more expensive and I dont really know how responsive the mouse would be, plus the fact that Id have to get a Bluetooth adaptor on top of the price of the combo. Besides they didnt carry it anyways...as a matter of fact I don't think anyone does yet. I also had a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer V3.0.
Again, a really good optical mouse.
Then one day at work one of the guys brought in a Staples flyer, I thumbed through it and sure enough there was the Wireless MX Duo with the 700MX mouse for like $145+tax (give or take a few dollars). Oh Man! I said, so then I thought well Ill see what its like online for this thing. Sure enough I saved about $30-40 going through Vibe Computers. The only thing that sucks about shopping online is the waiting for your stuff to arrive. You could get faster shipping but then you arent saving very much, if anything most times.
Logitech MX310 Optical Mouse The step up from ball mice being main stream to optical supremacy has been a quick, yet painless evolution on our computer desktop. If many of you dont have one, maybe now is the time to consider one.
