    so i got an external monitor to connect to my mbp to watch movies on and such and im wondering what the best wireless keyboard/mouse combo is available for mac? under $100 is necessary too... I really wish :apple: would make a wireless keyboard that was essentially the 13"MBP keyboard and trackpad (so like the 13"mbp bottom half, only mac keyboard thin.)

    +1. I have the exact same setup for my mac mini HTPC. The nano is great--fits nicely in hand yet is fairly small and works on any surface--in my case usually the couch. Only downside with the mouse is limited ability to customize as the Logitech Control Center software is not compatible with Snow Leopard but they're supposedly working on it.

    I have this same combo too, but with VX Revolution.

    I also have the same thing but I have the wired Apple keyboard without the key pad.

    How do you guys work without a numpad?

    It's 100% faster than using the string of numbers across the top.

    I have that combo, except with the MX Revolution instead of the VX. I have the wired aluminium keyboard as backup, but I found I don't really use the number pad very often.

    I rarely need a number pad. If I did, I could always use the wired keyboard.

    I have the Apple bluetooth keyboard and Microsoft's Mobile Memory 8000 Mouse. I like Microsoft's mice more than Logitech's ones. It doesn't make any noise and fits nice with my hand.

    I'm pretty fond of my Microsoft ARC for when I'm on the go:

    Pales in comparison to a (corded) G9x, though.
