Logitech Launches New Wireless and Backlit Keyboard Model K800

Sometimes it's the little things that make the differences.  One of the things I love about my MacBook Pro is the backlight feature of the keyboard.  You never know where you'll take a laptop... or a keyboard for that matter.
With so much of health care being digital now, it's easy to envision the old darkened viewing area of a hospital or a dental office.  Where once stood view-boxes, now stand monitors and keyboards.  I've been known to  spend some time reading cone beam scans in a dimly lit room to improve my ability to visualize the structures.  It's just so much easier without all the ambient "light pollution" that affects my ability to discern underlying structures.
So, I was delighted to see that one of my favorite peripheral companies, Logitech, has come out with a wireless keyboard that is backlit. In the darkened areas of radiographic interpretation, this device provides enough lighting to allow you to type and find the other keys you need to control your computer.
Backlighting the keyboard is one of those simple, but necessary things.  Once you've used it for any length of time, you'll slap yourself in the forehead and wonder how you ever got along without it.  It's also a bargain for only $99.  Try one, and you'll never give it back!
