I’ve used Microsoft’s Natural Keyboard for years and the first day I used it, it really made my computing experience so much more comfortable. Today, Microsoft will release a new set of hardware offerings (keyboards/mice) to improve on what they’ve already done well.
¬?At Microsoft, we take comfort very seriously and are continually looking for ways to make the time our customers spend on their PCs more comfortable, said Dan Odell, Ph.D., Microsoft Hardware user researcher and ergonomist. We are excited to introduce new products specifically designed to enhance PC comfort, including the new Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000, which was expertly crafted for our loyal split-keyboard users looking for greater comfort.

Microsoft has a more-than-20-year history of delivering comfortable products, including the first affordable split keyboard in 1994, which is the No. 1 best-selling Natural keyboard layout, and the Comfort Curve keyboard design introduced in 2005 ¬? which, when tested in internal focus groups against other keyboards, was chosen 3-to-1. Microsoft ergonomists are continually looking for ways to make PC experiences more comfortable, and the Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000, Comfort Curve Keyboard 2000 and Comfort Optical Mouse 3000, all introduced today, take comfort to a new level.
