Can you help me pick a good wireless Mouse and Keyboard?
Here's the deal, I don't want to spend $100+ on a wireless mouse and keyboard. The same keyboards I've had for decades have all worked fine. But my Microsoft Wireless 1000 (with the little USB "pod" wireless receiver) has recently started having a crappy signal. I don't understand why, I've tried different channels, etc... I know lots of troubleshooting tricks, I've had this for 5 years. But maybe it's time for Bluetooth or something else?
I use my laptop hooked up to my TV in my living room and I sit about 8 feet away from where the USB dongle will be. I think having a touch pad or "nub" on the keyboard would be convenient, but a mouse is a must. Also, I require a number pad. I don't understand why mice and keyboards are over $60, I think the combo should be $20-$30 - but maybe I'm just cheap. So I'm setting the limit to $100, but I really want someone to sell me on the product of choice!
