    Well 2 different combos that come together i really need a new keyboard and mouse and I was just wondering what OT thought. I really like the one that comes with the mic/headphones because I like the bright white and black on the keyboard and mouse. But the other ones are both wireless and the mouse is a laser mouse and the other one is just an optical mouse. Here are the links for both.

    The one with the nice white: http://www.thesourcecc.com/estore/Product.aspx?language=en-CA&catalog=Online&category=Input+Devices+Keyboards&product=2616528

    And the one thats wireless and a laser mouse: http://www.thesourcecc.com/estore/Product.aspx?language=en-CA&catalog=Online&category=Input+Devices+Keyboards&product=2618698

    Get a decent one instead. For the same price (a little more if you want a fancy one) you can get a Logitech that will last you longer and work better than that Radio Shack garbage.

    Optical (ball-less) mice can be either LED or laser. Laser is way more accurate. LED optical mice suck.

    They're the ones with the little red light on the bottom of them... that annoy the hell out of people who may be sitting in front of the user if the user is the type to pick up their mouse too high when repositioning it. Lol.

    It may not have been labeled LED but that's what it was. They were just called optical mice. Laser mice distinguish themselves from the rest by using the word laser in the description. The laser mice I've seen don't have any visible light coming from the bottom.
