    Hi, I am just looking for some Mouse & Keyboard to replace the Alum Macbook's Keyboard and its trackpad when at home. I have searched quite a bit of Mice but I didn't really get to know variety of Keyboard.

    Mice
    Logitech v270
    Logitech vx Nano

    Apple Mighty mouse wireless

    Keyboard
    Apple Alum wireless keyboard...

    These are the ones I know so far...
    Price difference between Mighty Mouse and VX Nano isn't that big and cause of that fact I can't make the decision.

    Please, help me to find the right mouse/keyboard for me !!!
    -Chris-
    p.s. You can always recommend something else;)

    if you arent in NEED of a num pad..then the wireless keyboard by apple is a beauty. i love it.

    as for the mouse...there are many people here who will tell you not the get the mighty mouse.
    i have no problem with mine...but do understand the reasoning behind everyone not wanting one.
    the contour from the mouse to your hand is difficult for some to get used to.
    there are plenty of reports of might mice just not working.

    I would definitely get the Apple wireless KB. It's pretty sweet.

    As for the mouse, I love the Logitech MX1000. It's the best mouse I've ever owned. I'm sure the newer version are just as good.

    Get the updated MX1000, an MX Revolution. Most advanced mouse ever, it's downright incredible. About $30 new on eBay.

    Keyboard is simple also - wireless apple. :)

    I'd definitely go for the Apple Wireless Keyboard. It really is very compact, comfortable to type on, and the battery lasts ages. It also does look very nice. However, EVADE THE MIGHTY MOUSE. It is genuinely the worst mouse I have *ever* owned. It is comfortable but they thing is just ghastly to use! I'd actually recommend a Razer mouse. I'm using a Copperhead one at the moment as well as the dreaded Mighty Mouse and it's great. :)

    I don't know about the mighty mouse but I have had a Logitech mouse for quite some time and it has always served me well and still works fine.

    I'm 50/50 when it comes to the mighty mouse, the roller ball isnt the best but it does look very good.

    Here's another vote for the Revolution. The only downside is that once you use it your standards are raised so high that using other mouses is just a pain.

    MX Revolution, VX Revolution, or both.

    Both a great; VX is more portable and you can store the receiver in the mouse; MX is just the best money can buy.

    Unfortunately you should have read the replies. The VX is alright for a laptop, but for a desktop, nasty. Far too small, even for my wife's small hands for continual use.

    The MX is much more ergonomically designed for your hands, and has much more features.

    See if a return is plausible.

    Reviews?? Where o_O?

    Ummm I am pretty sure they will take the return since I haven't open the package... It is mostly for the Alum Macbook so portability would be somthing to consider but when I take the macbook to classes I will be mostly using the trackpad...:confused:

    Now what...? is MX revolution really that great compared to VX nano?

    you can check it out at their website...
    so you can have a better understanding.

    The Mighty Mouse is nice, works well for me and is easy to connect, trust me some of these other mice are a pain or require a special usb adapter (don't need that taking up an USB port)
