Following the naming convention and style of its Arc Mouse, the company's new keyboard features a sleek, minimalist design -- lacking even a number pad. Given its lightweight, compact design, the Arc Keyboard seems destined for use in home entertainment setups, where wires and other bulkiness is a burden.

    Looks about as useful as the arc mouse.

    I like the "nano transceiver". The big "mouse" transceiver is a waste of space and doesn't work every well anyway. Much nicer to have a tiny one.
  4. I love the arc mouse! Everyone who has tried mine ended up buying one as well. This should be cool.

    I could see it taking place of the current keyboard I use to control media, but I'm also fairly sure this isn't the first to not have a number pad. Hey Microsoft, know what would really be cool? Make that textpad on the Xbox 360 controller work as a keyboard. That would really be nice for media centers.
