Microsoft's Wireless Laser Desktop 7000 and Digital Media Keyboard 3000

Microsoft is at it again with its boring-as-can-be product names and its terrifically designed computer mice and keyboards. First off is the new Wireless Laser Desktop 7000 (pictured), which Microsoft calls the "little black dress" of peripherals -- something we find to be at least a little disturbing. The keyboard and mouse combo include "smoked translucent border" design elements, conveniently-assignable My Favorites Keys, and some rather sleek / thin looks. The keyboard -- which we saw pass the FCC in February -- is of the Comfort Curve-ilk, the Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 has a horizontal charging station, and both use 2.4GHz wireless tech. The worst news is the price, at $130 when it hits in April. If you don't need all the fancy, Microsoft also has the new Digital Media Keyboard 3000 (pictured after the break) with some fun media-centric keys for the much more palatable $30 pricepoint. It'll be out in June.
