Wireless Mouse & Keyboards

I have been looking around for wireless sets, and singles.

Then I started thinking how I always hated how they call them wireless. When you have to plug in that friggin wired signal thing, and then it looks crappy and is not 100% wireless.

I was thinking they should come out with something that is the size of a usb key that you can plug into the back of your computer and then your good to go. Then I thought, maybe they do....

Sooooo I came here to ask, if there is anything like that?

My apple keyboard and mouse don't have any wires or a silly wired base station. You probably want to look for bluetooth devices as you'll have a greater degree of choices when it comes to the actual dongle device.

Bluetooth dongles are tiny devices you just plug into your computer. I bought one for $20 a few years ago. You can then use any bluetooth keyboard you find on the market with it, and use it within 30 feet :D.

Apple's wireless keyboard is very cool and slick looking, especially the bluetooth one, but it is not full size. Microsoft also makes very good keyboards. As for a mouse, go with a Microsoft mouse. I have owned the Apple mighty mouse, and I hated it, and Logitech mice seem to jump around on my mouse pad like there is no tomorrow.

mm... try microsoft laptop mouses... they come with a tiny usb stick... not the big station desktop ones come (btw, i also think its pretty stupid having a wireless mouse with a huge station that has a long cord, so much for wireless :p)
the only bad thing is that they're not as big as desktop mouses... but they work as good.. and they're always ambidextrous (for me, being left handed, its a huge deal... heheh)


oh, and xistence... your advice on keyboards seems pretty cool... do u need to config anything when u use that setup? (i mean, the bt dongle + bt key)

I like Microsoft Keyboards, I have a wired Multimedia Keyboard from there, and want a wired one of it, which they have, but dont think its bluetooth.

I have a Logitech G5 Gamers mouse, which I love, and want wireless, I dont assume they have that in bluetooth eh?

Since I got my G5 Mouse about a year ago, I guess I would be one as well. I really enjoy them, didn't know they had that wireless design.

Now, anyone got an idea on keyboards. I wish I could have the one I have now but with that technology.

I went with the Logitech G7, it was on sale and ended up loving it. I comes with 2 batteries and a little charging dock, and I just use it right on my couch without a mouse pad, for my HTPC.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
