New mice and keyboard for your Windows 8 PC

Windows 8 Release preview is already available and if you’ve decided to give it a shot, you’ll notice the big changes to Windows 8 over Windows 7.

In line with the Windows 8 release, Microsoft, yesterday, unveiled a range of new mice and keyboards that are ready to work with Windows 8. It doesn’t mean your existing mouse and keyboard will stop working, but, the new series is specially designed to get the most of Windows 8.

With Windows 8 Pro upgrades available for only $39.99, I am sure many users (including me) are likely to upgrade their Windows 7 and Windows Vista systems. However, on a personal note, I am unlikely to buy any new hardware for this. I already have two wireless mice and one wired mouse which I use with my MacBook Pro and Dell laptops. However, if you’re going to be an avid Windows 8 user who would prefer the functionality these devices give you, then it’s worth the purchase. And, they do look gorgeous!
