Logitech announced the MK470 Slim wireless keyboard and mouse combo kit, specifically designed for those who seek a more comfortable experience while at the desk. This new kit looks the part, sporting a sleek, modern-looking black and silver design. The keys utilize scissor switches for quieter typing and the main mouse clicks also produce less noise.

The keyboard itself sports a compact layout with a full number pad, so you have everything you need to remain productive throughout the day. And because the keyboard and mouse are wireless, you'll keep your desk looking fresh and neat with little clutter. To aid with battery optimization, both devices will enter an auto-sleep mode when not in use, further extending the time between charges.

You should get up to 18 months and 36 months for the mouse and keyboard on a single charge, respectively, according to the manufacturer. The MK470 kit connects to your PC using a 2.4GHz wireless USB receiver. You can buy the MK470 combo kit right now on Logitech's website and select retail outlets for $50.
