    M$ touch mouse $49.99 keyboard $79.99!!


    To go with their new shiny operating system MS are launching their touch mouse.
    You will be able to buy this at the bargain price of $79.99!!!!

    Somehow I do not feel tempted to replace my 10year old 5 button mouse that has the paint worn off but still works perfectly. This cost the enormous sum Of 4.50 call it $7; media keyboard 6 ($9)

    I've got a lot of old Ms hardware that I still use. They're pretty solid.

    I'm really WTF on the price though. I can get a decent mechanical keyboard for less, and that will be significantly better in typing quality.

    Of course not, but personally I have NO use for any tablet, when a netbook or laptop are so much more practical and a MUCH better value for your money.

    $50 isn't that terrible for a mouse. I've paid that much in the past.

    As far as a keyboard goes, there are $8 keyboards and there are nice mechanical keyboards that cost $130. Coworker of mine just got the Das Professional S for work and for the work environment it's nice. I 'm actually contemplating getting one for my desk as I sit here and type all day.

    I paid 50 dollars for the Microsoft Touch Mouse and I think 50 as well for my Logitech wireless solar powered keyboard....I am an experienced explorer of the amazon....com.

    80 dollars for a mouse seems high, it is. But then again, some people do pay that money for a peripheral like a mouse, for example, gamers. They sometimes pay almost 100 dollars and more for a mouse and keyboard. Why? Floats their boat. The Touch Mouse floats my boat as it's great for the Desktop, and will be great for the metro environment.

    I recently bought the MS Touch Mouse at Fry's for $75 ($5 off for open box), and really love it. Use it all of the tine now on my W7 box. Too bad I can't use it at work on my XP box (will they EVER upgrade it)? Not sure how different the new mouse will be.

    That's too expensive for me. Not even worth considering.
