    So I just recently got rid of my pc desktop because I never really used it so I figured why not get rid of it while I can get a little something for it. I just ordered a Dell flat panel to use as an external monitor but I'm still looking for a mouse and keyboard. What are you all using? I saw the mini apple keyboard but I'm not sure if I like it or not. I like the bluetooth aspect but $70 for a keyboard and another $70 for the fucking mouse is kinda outrageous IMO. Any ideas or experience?

    Using a Steelseries 7G and a MX Revolution. I think both are around $200 total now.

    I use a Sun UNIX-style keyboard and a Microsoft laser mouse.

    I like how the Mac keyboard works and feels and some of the function keys are almost necessary for using Mac. The wireless mighty mouse I am not so much a fan of. It is hard to differentiate between the right and left mouse button and the middle button is useless IMO. That being said my friend does a lot of editing on his Mac and swears by the mighty mouse.
