Mac Modifier Keys provide "control, option and command" buttons, and a Zoom Slider allows magnification of digital photos and other media.
Microsoft Tuesday said it has produced a keyboard and mouse specifically for users of rival Apple Macintosh systems.
"This launch further demonstrates Microsoft’s commitment to enhancing the computing experience for Mac users," Scott Erickson, director of product management and marketing for the Macintosh Business Unit at Microsoft, said in a prepared statement.
Among the elements of Microsoft's announcement is the Wireless Laser Desktop for Mac’s Comfort Curve Keyboard; Mac Modifier Keys, which provide "control, option and command" buttons; a "Zoom Slider" that enables magnification of digital photos and other media; favorites keys; an "Eject" key for CDs and DVDs; other "Hot Keys;" and a high-definition laser mouse.
Microsoft said this is the latest example of its efforts to provide products for Mac users, including versions of its Office software for the Macintosh operating system.
The Redmond, Wash., company said it is street-pricing its Wireless Laser Desktop for Mac at $99.95 and it will be available during the summer.
