Microsoft Arc Detailed Features

In the last section we briefly touched on the basic functions of the Arc wireless keyboard. If you hadn't noticed many of the elegant lines and useful features, we'll inspect them further in the following section.

Another way Microsoft chose to save space was with the uni-directional key, illustrated above. It's fairly self-explanatory, and works famously. But, if you cannot depict the purpose from the picture, it serves as a single button to perform the function of the traditional up, down, left, and right buttons. The direction-pad key was a huge help for me.

This is a close-up of the mini-USB receiver. This tucks nicely into the little magnetic holder on the bottom of the Arc, and I tried shaking and gently bumping the keyboard against a table to shake it loose, but it is firmly attached in there.

Shown here is another "angle" shot meant to give you an idea of the aesthetically pleasing lines and curves the Microsoft Arc keyboard has.

Here is a shot of the top of the Arc from the side. Notice the natural arch from the center to either side the keyboard has.

The esc and del keys are very stupid, and hard to use. The arrow keys are bad too.
Becuase of that, its a bad idea.
