Logitech Notebook Kit MK605

Logitech-MK605

By Chris Scott Barr

My computer setup is rather complicated, as I have a pair of monitors hooked to my desktop PC, plus I use my MacBook with another monitor attached to it. I’ve been using one of Logitech’s Alto laptop stands, which certainly helps things out. It not only gives me a nice stand that keeps the notebook’s screen at the same height as my monitor, but it also has a wireless keyboard that goes with it. Well today Logitech announced the successor to this, the Notebook Kit MK605.

The MK605 Kit comes with a much more simplistic riser than the Alto. No electronic components are integrated into it, but it does have three different angles at which it can hold your laptop. You’ll also find a fairly basic wireless keyboard and mouse set (K340 and M505 respectively) that work with the Unifying technology we’ve seen lately. You’ll just need one tiny receiver for both peripherals. Batteries won’t be too much of an issue, as the keyboard will last 3 years and the mouse 15 months between sets. If you use your laptop for long periods on your desk, this $99 set will be well worth the money.

    This.. is actually really nice! I wonder if the stands come in different sizes or just a one size fits all?

    You could easily modify one of these with some cooling fans or features. :)

    Maybe add a slim high-capacity battery as well? Boost that 3 hour notebook up to 5, sounds good to me!

    This is definitely a nice package at $100. Hell, even if you cheaped out individually, you’d only save like what? $20 at most? Might as well just spend the extra $20 and get this instead. Totally worth it.
