    recommend me a wireless keyboard and mouse combo

    As the title says really. Mouse has to be rechargeable and if it comes with programable buttons, that's a bonus.

    I was looking at this one http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/83962
    but was wondering if you guys have any opinions.

    Don't really want to burst &#163;50 but would do for the right set-up.

    It's weird how you can buy loads of wireless mice separately but not many keyboards.

    in games having mouse movement is more important then a keyboard seeing as you normally only use a keyboard for movement of the character the mouse is dependent for those all so important headshots

    well in reality it would be the &#163;700 keyboard that has a screen in every key but this hasn't been released yet I think they have pre-orders though if you feel like dropping a grande it is the optimus keyboard if memory serves me right

    Unless anyone has any huge objections to the desktop set in the first post, I think I'll buy it.

    Of course, ideally I'd want to buy a seperate wireless keyboard and a logitech mx1000 or g7, but hey ho.

    Wouldn't go with that one, it's quite an old model from many years ago.

    How about:

    Surely the 'best' wireless set-up would be a Logitech diNovo Edge (&#163;150) and the MX Revolution Mouse (&#163;70)...?

    I fancy the keyboard myself, but couldn't get on with the mouse at all for gaming.

    Does anyone have the keyboard?

    I don't think you can recharge the mouse on that one, though. Since it doesn't come with a docking station that rules it out for me.

    Probably. He is the kind of guy who just buys whatever is the most expensive.. And its a Logitech, and I know it cost over a hundred quid It basically looks like a piece of shiny thin blackened glass, with really nice keys. On the right there is a little mouse pad which works surprisingly well for a mouse pad, and above it, is a little line similar to the mouse pad. You just run your finger up and down that, to turn the computer's volume up and down.

    On the top, I think all the function keys have lights. There may be other lights on it too. And lastly, it just slots into a little holder which keeps it recharged. And evidently once its well charged, it lasts something ridiculous like 60+ hours without needing to be recharged. Oh, and its bluetooth.

    He also got the equivalent mouse.

    Pure overkill But its very nice if you have the money I suppose.

    Can't cope with a direct coffee strike, as I found to my cost. Awesome keyboard though. I keep getting tempted by the DiNovo Edge and having to talk myself out of it.

    For a very decent set (compared to the DiNovo anyway), the Microsoft Laser Desktop 6000 is good value. The mouse isn't great though.
