Logitech MX700 Cord­-less Optical Mouse

The MX700 comes with a rapid-charge base station in which you dock the mouse when you’re not using it. Logitech says a 10-minute charge keeps the mouse going all day, and six to seven hours of recharging gets you 10 days of service. But that’s optimistic — in my experience, a night’s charge netted five days of run time. The base station eliminates the need to replace standard batteries every three months.

The MX700’s true strength lies in its performance. The fast RF wireless control worked well at up to 9m from the base station (no line-of-sight positioning required). Besides the regular two left/right buttons and a scroll wheel on top, Logitech provides three sets of user-customisable buttons. Two buttons offer a unique system for continuous scrolling; two thumb-control buttons let you move forward or back through Web pages; and the Quick Switch Program Selector lets you cycle through active programs and documents.

All these functions make on-screen navigation quick and easy. The optical engine tracks at 4.7 megapixels per second — about three times as fast as most optical mice — affording smooth and precise cursor control, which can be particularly useful for graphics creation and game play. In all, a top-of-the-line wireless optical mouse offering great performance and features — but, unfortunately, it’s for right-handed users only.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
