There's just something about a keyboard that promises to "cradle our fingers" that gets us all hot and bothered, and right or wrong, we just can't stop thinking about what a joy it must be to bang out dissertations, love letters and Nigerian scam emails on one of the beauties shown above. Logitech's Wireless Desktop MK700 is a two-piece kit comprised of an LCD-equipped keyboard and an ergonomic mouse with built-in hyper-scrolling. Both devices seem to go easy on the juice, with the keyboard able to run for three years on a single set of AA cells and the mouse for 12 months. The included USB dongle certainly isn't as diminutive as the company's recently released Unifying Receiver, but need we remind your digits just how pleasured they'll be when pressing these keys? It'll be $99.99 to get in, and it ought to ship out this month. The full release is after the break.
