Bacteria fighting Logitech MX3200 Wireless combo

So it's come to this. Now that every wireless keyboard/mouse combo looks pretty much like every other keyboard/mouse combo, manufacturers have had to start coming up with new ways to differentiate their products.

I'll admit that I couldn't have dreamed this one up: Logitech's MX3200 keyboard and mouse are coated in the AgION antimicrobial compound so that bacteria, mold and mildew won't take up residence. (This isn't an idle concern -- a 2004 University of Arizona study showed that the average keyboard had up to 3,295 microbes per square inch, compared to a mere 49 for toilet seats; but that's nothing compared to the 25,127 found on telephones.)

Given our seemingly unstoppable mania for disinfecting every last bit of our surroundings, the MX3200 will no doubt fly off the shelves. Just remember that in the end, it will be those of us with working immune systems who will rule the world, laughing from our awe-inspiring (and slightly grubby) palaces.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
