Excerpt: Here’s a turn up for the books – a Microsoft product that looks more stylish and elegant than Apple’s own alternative. The sleek, curved design of the wireless Arc keyboard looks lovely, and is suitable for use both at home on a small desk and when you’re travelling with a laptop.
Stylish, compact design, good Mac software for programming function keys
No numeric keypad, uses separate USB wireless adaptor rather than Bluetooth
Summary: The wireless Microsoft Arc Keyboard is lightweight, attractive and comfortable to use. At around £40, we wouldn't recommend it as a replacement for a standard keyboard, but, for anyone who regularly uses a computer as part of their home-entertainment set-up, the Arc is a worthy investment
Pros: Comfortable to type on, Lightweight, Easy to set up
Cons: Fairly expensive, Direction buttons have been merged into a single button that's relatively awkward to use
Excerpt: Microsoft 's Arc keyboard takes a very different approach to typing than your regular bog-standard offering. But does that mean that it's a better, more comfortable, experience? We put it to task writing news and reviews for Pocket-lint to find out.
Pros: Small, not as hard to type on as you might expect, no software needed, wireless
Cons: Arrow keys become a stiff single key d-pad, no number pad, no USB socket for mouse
