Peripherals to improve your Windows 8 experience

On February 1, 2013, in Uncategorized, by Kovalsky09

You purchased the new Windows 8 operating system mainly because the system’s new touch-screen capabilities intrigued you. There’s just one problem: Your older computer isn’t a touch screen. You still open files, look at the Web and manage e-mail messages using an old-fashioned mouse and keyboard. And what if you utilize a tablet running Windows 8? Then you’ll be lacking the many mouse- and keyboard-controlled options that come with the system. Don’t give up hope. Traditional laptop and desktop users can still enjoy many of the touch-screen and gesture-based features found in Windows 8. And tablet users can enjoy the keyboard- and mouse-based features. You just need to invest in the right peripherals. Fortunately, PC Magazine recently ran a feature story outlining some of these must-have Windows 8 add-ons.

Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard

If you’re running Windows 8 on a tablet, you will want a high-end mobile keyboard for when you want to replicate the desktop experience. The Microsoft Wedge may be your best option. This is because it’s not only a solid keyboard, it’s one built exclusively to cooperate with Windows 8. The keyboard includes several built-in Windows 8 functions to enable you to tap completely into the power of Microsoft’s latest operating system.

Logitech T650 Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad

There’s a reason why the editors at PC Magazine named the Logitech T650 Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad their top choice for Windows 8 computer mice: This touchpad replicates all those nifty touch-screen features of the operating system for users that are still computing on traditional mouse-and-keyboard-powered desktops and laptops. If you desire the complete touch-screen-enhanced Windows 8 experience, you’ll want to invest in this peripheral.

Kingston DataTraveler Workspace

Need to take your Windows 8 experience traveling, but you would rather not lug a laptop on the plane? Then it’s time for you to invest in the Kingston DataTraveler Workspace. This nifty device appears to be an ordinary USB drive. It actually contains Windows To Go, a portable version of the Windows 8 operating system. With this device, that fits in your pocket, you’ll be able to boot up Windows 8 on any computer of your choice.
