Logitech Desktop
Smarter Than You

ILLED as the world’s first smart desktop, Logitech Cordless Desktop MX5000 Laser not only gives you added functionality but its slim design makes your desktop a joy to work on.

Multimedia fans will welcome the ability to control music and photos from the keyboard. Three buttons at the top left of the keyboard gives you immediate access to My Videos, My Music and My Pictures folders.

Slide your finger on the media control pad at the left side of the keyboard and you can use the Play, Pause, Previous and Next, Zoom and Volume controls for your music or photos.

The dashboard LCD display is remarkable. It shows your name, temperature (the room’s, not yours), date and time, also keyboard status such as Caps, Lock, Num Lock, or F-key lock. It even alerts you when you have to change batteries. The laser mouse is rechargeable.
