Bluetooth Keyboard and Mouse

I just purchased the mac mini with the bluetooth option, but I was wondering if there was a better keyboard and mouse than the one that apple has to offer. I like the keyboard fine but i get tired of the one button mouse. Any suggestions or links to sites would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

although very, very expensive, this cannot be beat, imo.

I have that mouse for both my desktop and my laptop.
For a bit less, you could get the wireless version that doesnt require bluetooth.

Personally, I went with the apple bluetooth combo just because its so damn sexy. That being said, perhaps you could keep the apple keyboard and go with the logitech mouse (it really is the best mouse I have ever used).

F.Y.I. it can take the apple keyboard up to 10 seconds to wake up.

personal preference

I know it is all about what the user feels most comfortable with but I used the apple mouse and got tired of the one button and no scroll. I like the keyboard because of the eject button, volume controls. I know this topic comes up a lot and I am sorry to ask again but I didn't know if there was something new and improved. Do most bluetooth keyboards have the eject option or volume controls like the apple keyboard. Thanks for the links so far.

I "switched" a couple of months ago, and I never thought I'd ever get used to a one button mouse with no scroll button. But, you get used to it, and I now couldn't imagine using anything than the "official" apple BT keyboard and mouse with my mac. They're just soooo sexy.

Actually the keyboard is the best I have ever used... period. It makes those huge logitech things look really ugly.

(Just my opinion).

I agree. It's funny, I just looked down at my Logitech keyboard and smiled (pc). I absolutely LOVE my apple bluetooth keyboard. So sexy and comfortable. But nothing even comes close to my Logitech mx700 wireless mouse. That thing is sexy (not mac sexy, but sexy indeed, and matches my Shuttle pc) and the most comfortable, efficient mouse I have ever used. That being said, I still went with the Apple moust just because of the sexiness factor, and I don't mind it one bit.
