Targus launches Mac line of accessories
  

Perhaps best known for its broad line of laptop bags, Targus also manufactures laptop accessories to carry in the bags--travel mice, presentation remotes, and the like. Tuesday morning, the company announced six new mobile accessories, all specifically designed to coordinate with Apple MacBooks.

The lineup includes two travel mice: the $50 Wireless Mouse for Mac uses a USB microreceiver that tucks inside the mouse for transit, while the $70 Bluetooth Laser Mouse for Mac keeps your USB ports free for other peripherals. Inspired by the iPod Touch, the company has outfitted both mice with a 4-way touch scroll that lets you move up/down and left/right with the tip of a finger. Two additional buttons can be programmed with your most-used functions or apps.


The $80 Bluetooth Presenter for Mac, meanwhile, is compatible with both Keynote and PowerPoint and includes a laser pointer. The device is designed with tactile cues for the primary presentation controls--such as previous slide, next slide, and laser pointer--to prevent accidental button presses; secondary functions, such as blank screen and slide show, are recessed. There are also volume controls, plus two programmable buttons to give you quick access to your favorite applications or functions.

And I think the $50 Chill Mat for Mac will be a welcome accessory, given the MacBook's reputation for running hot. With two USB-powered fans and a soft mesh bottom that allows for optimal air flow, the Chill Mat promises to help your Mac stay cool on your lap and prevent heat damage when used on other work surfaces.

Other products in today's announcement include a four-port USB Hub ($30), a USB file-share cable ($50), and privacy screens in three sizes (up to $80 for the 17-inch version). All the Targus Mac accessories announced Tuesday are available immediately at the company's site and from resellers.
