Wireless Keyboards Offer Complete Control

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

Recently I was bed ridden due to a minor procedure (don’t worry, I’m fine).  I found myself spending a lot of time watching television and putzing around on the internet.  Some of the best content I was watching was off my computer, thanks to the likes of  Netflix and Hulu.com.  I was able to pass a whole lot of time  and forget about the pain by catching up with  movies and TV shows.  One thing that was annoying was changing the sites, or TV shows by having to get up repeatedly and walk over to the computer.  I wanted to still enjoy my programming without having to move around. Pretty soon, I figured out the best solution: A wireless keyboard.

I picked up the Logitech MK320 and I couldn’t be happier.  I watched several episodes of Sons of Anarchy Season 3 as well as the movie,  True Grit, all without moving more than a few keyboard tapping muscles.  If you are looking for a great solution when combining your TV and computer, a wireless keyboard is an essential, convenient item for all your computing needs.

 

iMac and Mac Mini are Brand New Again

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

 

Apple rolled out the latest versions of iMac and the Mac Mini. There are some standout features on both.

Both the 21.5” and the 27” iMacs are better, more powerful, and faster. They will also have larger LED backlit screens. The 21.5” monitor will be full HD (1080p) and the 27” will be full HD plus have 78% more pixels. iMacs also come standard with IPS technology that enables their display to perform well at all angles.

Abt will stock the Magic Mouse ($69) and the full-size wireless keyboard. The Magic Mouse is an intuitive, wireless mouse that will do more than the average computer mouse. It can scroll horizontally, vertically, and in a full 360°. Along with the scrolling capabilities, the mouse can function differently for the left or right hand, based on a setting. A chief complaint about the previous wireless keyboards was they didn’t have a numeric keyboard. Apple has listened; they made a full-size keyboard with numbers.

Apple created the latest iMac with more storage, more memory, a better graphics processor, a new CPU, and one of the 27” models has a Quad Core Processor. These upgrades give the iMac workstation qualities in a personal computer.

Along with the performance upgrades the environmental benefits of the iMacs and Mac Mini are standout. They are all free of Lead, BFR, Mercury, PVC, and arsenic-free glass.

The Mac Mini will come with a faster processor, twice as much memory, NVIDIA graphics, built-in wireless, added hard drive space, and it’s the most energy efficient desktop on the market. When idle, the Mac Mini uses only 14 watts if energy.

The Mac Mini starts at $599. The 21.5” iMac starts at $1199 and the 27” starts at $1699.
