IBM wireless kit is down to earth

Big Blue's new desktops, wireless mouse, keyboard

IBM released this week a wireless mouse and keyboard kit for its ThinkPad notebook series, as well as five new models of NetVista desktop PCs.

In standard black (for which read dull and rather '80s-looking), the mouse and keyboard are sold together as a kit available from IBM's website for around $99. They are bundled with a receiver, which connects to a PC via a USB port, enabling them to work wirelessly.

"You can use the wireless keyboard with a ThinkPad if you want a bigger keyboard and more flexibility," said IBM spokesman Bob Paige.

The company also announced this week the arrival of five new models in its NetVista range of space-saving PCs which neatly hide the guts of the computer within slimline flat-panel displays.
