Before I start, yes, I've searched Like I state in my signature, I've got an early '08 white MacBook. I recently got some cash as a present for my birthday and I'm looking to put it towards a desk setup for the machine - specifically a mouse, keyboard, and monitor. Mouse I can't seem to decide which mouse I want - there's the huge MX Revolution (I'm only 15 so I don't have huge hands), smaller VX Revolution, and the Mighty Mouse. I see pros in all 3 of these but the cons seem to outweigh choosing any of them. The VX/MX both have terrible software (I don't want to put a lot of money towards another mouse program) and use a USB dongle. The Mighty Mouse doesn't need a dongle (if I go the BT route), but it has that awful scroll nub issue. I've looked at a RocketFish BT mouse as well, but I'm not a huge fan of the loud click scroll wheel. Another issue for me is price - I have a hard time justifying a mouse that costs $70. In terms of the dongle, I don't know if I should just plug it into the wired keyboard, or the computer itself. If I'm gonna need a USB dongle, I figure it's the same as getting a wired mouse, because it doesn't go much further than my desk (which isn't huge anyways). I'd say the mouse is my biggest issue. Keyboard I think I'm set on the wired Apple keyboard (I like having a numeric pad), but I was also eyeing the Logitech diNovo keyboard. Once again, I'm having a hard time justifying the price of the Logitech - for those of you who have it, is it any good? I've heard good things about the Apple keyboard, but not any cons. If there are any, what are they? For those of you with this keyboard, how is it? Good for a MacBook? Monitor I'm starting to doubt whether or not I even need a monitor, but if I were to get one I'm not even sure where to start. I use my computer for web design, watching videos, and music recording. There are so many manufacturers to choose from, and then there's the issue of resolution and whether or not my MacBook can handle it (I'd get nothing more than a 1920 by 1080 pixel resolution monitor). I'm looking at Samsung, Asus, and Acer, but I've also heard great things about Dell. Size for me would be optimally around 22-23". I'm not even sure if I need an HD resolution monitor since the DVI input won't handle it anyways (am I correct?). - EDIT: found a good deal on a Samsung, anybody have this one? It would be great if anybody who has a mouse, keyboard, or monitor they recommend could give me some pros/cons and if anybody could point me in the right direction. I'm looking to spend less than $300.
