Windows Vista to launch with some swanky hardware devices from Microsoft

Microsoft's hardware division is at it again and this time they're pulling out all the stops with their latest product. The company has unveiled a new teaser campaign on its site that showcases "The Ultimate Keyboard."

The new Bluetooth-based wireless keyboard is aimed at making your Windows Vista experience even more pleasurable with such features as a backlit keyboard with ambient light sensor and proximity sensing to power down the lighting when you leave the room. Even more impressive is the included pad that charges your mouse when not in use. It's probably using some kind of induction charging system similar to what's used in A4Tech's BatteryFree Mouse. The ergonomic keyboard also features a host of media buttons and controls to take advantage of Vista's multimedia capabilities and has a 30 foot range. But for all its features, the new keyboard ditches the traditional numpad that most have grown accustomed to.

Microsoft's latest and greatest features premium grade plastic construction along with metal accents to liven things up. The Ultimate Keyboard is sure to have an ultimate price once it's released; likely around the same time that Vista hits store shelves.

I am a gamer who also writes out tons of HTML and messes with Photoshop CS2 on a regular basis, and I used wireless for like three and a half years until I realised how retarded it is.

If it was for a HTPC, where I would likely be sprawled out on the couch or something, wireless is fine. But for getting something done? No thanks.

What system were you using? I haven't noticed any lag or any other strange issues with the MX3100 systems I have.

Lag exists and while you may not notice it on your system other people can. The newest mice don't lag as much as the older ones but people still complain.

I'm a programmer/gamer who uses a MS Intellimouse explorer 2.0 (wireless) and MS Natural MM KB (wireless) and I don't have any issues gaming or typing away at code. Even my parents extreamly basic logitech wireless KB/mouse combo is just fine...
