Besides the stunning Illuminated Keyboard, Logitech also rolled out a new notebook keyboard and a cordless keyboard/mouse combo. The Logitech diNovo Keyboard for Notebooks is a cordless keyboard specifically designed for laptops, it features a modern, elegant design and a battery life of up to three years.
While notebook computers have become the platform of choice, people often have to compromise comfort and functionality in exchange for convenience and portability. Logitech has developed a range of peripherals, including notebook mice and a line of Alto™ notebook stands, that maximize the benefits and minimize the challenges posed by the notebook. The first Logitech keyboard designed specifically for the notebook PC, the diNovo Keyboard for Notebooks offers a full-size layout, complete with number pad, and the optimized key feel of PerfectStroke. By using the diNovo Keyboard for Notebooks with the Logitech® Alto™ Connect or Logitech® Alto™ Express notebook stands, you can transform your setup into a comfortable place to work and play, as well as protect yourself from laptop heat.
Based on Logitech’s distinctive line of diNovo™ keyboards, the impressively thin (.87 inches or 22.10 mm from base to key caps) diNovo Keyboard for Notebooks has a glossy black finish and brushed-aluminum palm rest that look great with any notebook PC.
Because you often use your notebook PC in busy wireless environments, Logitech’s advanced 2.4 GHz wireless technology dramatically reduces interference, effectively eliminating delays and dropouts. And by optimizing the power management system, Logitech’s improved wireless technology enables an impressive 3-year battery life for the keyboard.
The diNovo Keyboard for Notebooks will debut in October for $99.99. Here's a snip of information about the keyboard's PerfectStroke Key System which is also used by the Illuminated Keyboard:
The Logitech Illuminated Keyboard and the diNovo Keyboard for Notebooks feature the Logitech PerfectStroke key system, which provides a typing experience that’s comfortable, fluid and silent. PerfectStroke is designed to create longer key travel – 3.2 mm compared to 2.2 mm – than that of typical notebook keyboards; as a result, the distance your fingers have to travel to activate a key is optimized for your comfort. Micro-scissors distribute force evenly across key surfaces – even if you strike the edge of a key, the key stroke still feels the same.
Also new is the Logitech Cordless Desktop S520, this combo will be available later this month for $59.99.
With its matte-black and grey palette, its rounded edges and gently curved palm rest, and the straight lines of its full-size layout – the contemporary, yet compact, S520 keyboard complements a wide range of computers. Plus, the high-performance cordless laser mouse delivers exceptional precision and smoother tracking, compared to optical mice.
The new Logitech keyboard-and-mouse combination provides the convenience of up to eight months of battery life for the mouse and 15 months for the keyboard. With one-touch access to Word®, Excel® and your Internet browser – you can instantly get to your favorite applications. Four additional programmable F-keys let you customize your keyboard the way you want it and a full set of media and volume controls make managing your media, photos and music easy.
