Keyboard :
Logitech Cordless Freedom iTouch

$129.95 [CAN]

[ found here ]

Description:
A keyboard is a series of switches connected to the CPU that keeps track of all switches and provides a response for each change. Pressing a key on the keyboard allows a current to flow through its circuits. This information is held on a grid, with X and Y coordinates, which gets checked using a character map to see which character is to be displayed.

Why We Chose It:

We chose this particular keyboard because it is cordless. This is a great benefit of the keyboard, for it allows us to sit comfortably without the restrictions of the length of the keyboard cord. As well, it is a comfortable keyboard, as its keys are very soft and it has a palm rest. Its last feature that caught our eye was its internet/multimedia controls that are built into the keyboard, which is an added time saver!

$145.80 [CAN]

[ found here ]

Description:
The purpose of a printer is to allow the user to output hard copies of data that is on the computer. Without a printer, the computer would only be used to make calculations that could not be physically recorded. Today's printers are used for much more than printing data. Most computer users have a personal printer for which they use to print high quality images at near photo quality, and as well, for regular every day use such as printing out an essay or a bank record. This is why we feel that the printer is a vital component to every computer.

Why We Chose It:

- 11 ppm black text printing and 8 ppm colour, up to 2880 x 720 dpi resolution
- Convenient USB and Parallel connectivity
- Delivers sharp, accurate detail
- When printing from the web, it modifies low-resolution images for better image quality
- Quick-drying inks mean print outs won't smudge or bleed.
