    I know that to the majority this will sound a stupid question.

    But if i were to buy the wirless keyboard and mouse, could i use both at the same time? I know it may sound stupid but i've never used bluetooth before, want to know you can do above before i bite the bullet.

    Thanks a lot

    Yes, you can use several devices at the same time. I'm using two right now. I think I read somewhere that you can use seven devices simultaneously, but I'm not certain.

    not a problem at all, no change in transfer rates from what i have seen either, but then again i am only using a mouse and keyboard, but i didnt see any slowdown with the mouse once i got the KB

    apple 2 button mouse talk again? *jumps out window* *realizes he's on the 2nd floor* *walks in front door and upstairs* *bangs head against wall* but yeah, 2 devices simultaneously is fine. i've even used 3 (what can i say, im a daredevil) with no noticeable slowdown (a friend's bt kb/m and my phone for transferring something)
