The Wireless Laser Desktop 6000, the least expensive of the three, ships this month for a retail price of $99.95. The Wireless Entertainment Desktop 7000 and 8000 ship in January and February, respective. The 7000 is priced at $149.95, and the 8000 at $249.95.
The trio is built to take advantage of features in Windows Vista, but they also are compatible with Windows XP.
Among the Vista functions is one-touch access to the operating systems' start menu and a "gadget button" that reveals or hides personalized information such as weather and sports. A Windows Live call button lets users start an instant messaging session or a video call, and a media center start button gives users immediate access to movies and music.
Microsoft is scheduled to ship Windows Vista to consumers in January.
