Microsoft Arc Keyboard & Mouse

The switch to the netbook as my “desktop” computer means it now competes with space on my desk with the MacBook Pro setup.  When I am at home the MacBook Pro sits on a riser and I use the Apple bluetooth keyboard and mouse while working.  The old Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse that I put on the netbook was too big and bulky to make efficient use of my limited space. 

I made a trip to Best Buy today at lunch to scope out a new keyboard and mouse and ended up going with Microsoft products.  It does seem a little strange to use a Microsoft keyboard and mouse with a Linux machine in an Apple household, but I am blown away by the form factor of both of these. 

Here are the specs from Microsoft:
