Logitech Debuts Its Flagship Bluetooth Desktop System, the $170 MX5500 Revolution

MX5500.jpgThere may not be tiny LCD screens on each key, but Logitech's new high-end Vista-friendly keyboard-and-mouse pairing, the $170 MX5500 Revolution Cordless Desktop, does have an integrated display for time, calculator functions, media controls and incoming messages. The price includes the MX Revolution laser mouse, typically a $100 value. It also includes Bluetooth 2.0 integrated throughout the system, although I am a wee bit suspicious of the one-USB-port system requirement. I'd hope that is where the mouse's rapid-charging station goes, but I'm not holding my breath.MX5500_2.jpgFact sheet:
