CES - Logitech shows mini-wireless keyboard to control PC on TV

Logitech is showing off a mini-wireless keyboard designed for people who have connected their PCs to their TVs.

Logitech plans to show off a mini-keyboard that controls a person's PC wirelessly from the comforts of their family room sofa.

The handheld QWERTY keyboard, called the diNovo Mini keyboard, is designed for people who have connected their PCs to their TVs, allowing them to access photos, videos and other content on the PCs as well as navigate the Web and watch downloaded shows on their TV, the company said.

The mini-keyboard uses Bluetooth 2.0 wireless technology to control PC functions and includes hotkeys for media players and Web browsers, as well as page-up and page-down buttons that allow people to scroll when surfing the Web and zoom in and out of documents and images. Bluetooth has a range of around 30-feet from the PC, Logitech said.

The device also incorporates ClickPad, a round, thumb-sized pad for use in pointing, scrolling or clicking on a Web link. It can also be used as a media remote and a directional pad to navigate menus and make selections. The ClickPad is backlit in orange when in touch-pad mode, and green when it is in media-remote mode.

The keyboard keys are always backlit in orange to keep the device on the eyes.

The diNovo Mini keyboard is expected to go on sale in the U.S. and Europe in late January for US$149.99.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
