    I'm using a Logitech Illuminated Keyboard:


    And a Logitech G9x mouse:


    Also a Microsoft ARC mouse for when I'm on the go:


    What do you use?

    I use the standard iMac wired keyboard (which I think is one of the best keyboards I have ever used, I know this may cause a little controversy!), and a boring Microsoft optical mouse.

    Currently thinking about upgrading the mouse to a Logitech Revolution though - anything to avoid using the Mighty Mouse, wired, or otherwise!

    I always thought that would have been a pain to use! It's actually very conformable when I used it in an Apple Store but I found myself making typos because of it's layout; It requires some learning.

    Me? I went with the Apple Keyboard from the last generation which was the clear plastic generation and the wired Mighty Mouse. I only use these because they came with my Mini as I bought it on eBay.

    I had both the wired and wireless Mighty Mouse, and was not impressed on many levels.

    The wireless mouse had a terrible battery life, and no dock for charging, even when mice around the same price range came with a dock. The left and right buttons worked most of the time, but not always, and the scroll ball kept messing up, or failing to track. Apple missed the boat with that mouse.

    My wired Mighty Mouse only scrolls vertically now, except on the off days it feels like scrolling down. For the price, they just weren't worth it to me.

    Apple wired aluminum keyboard without number pad and Razer Mamba mouse. I'm trying to sell the Razer Mamba, I might put it on Ebay tonight. My hands are wayyy too big for it. :eek: It sucks I can t return it because ive had it a few days over the 14 day return policy.

    For me it is the wired full size apple keyboard and the wireless mighty mouse. As far as the battery dying, I havent changed the batteries since I got it. Although that was only about 8 months ago. Every once and a while it will stop scrolling one direction but then go back to working.

    Another vote for the MX Revolution mouse. Best one I've ever used. I complement that with the Logitech DiNovo for Mac.

    Normal Apple keyboard with numpad, and a Logitech G5. I've had this setup for at least three years now, whereas before I would switch one or the other at least once a year as I grew tired of it. Maybe I'm getting "set in my ways" or something ;p

    Another MX Revolution user. That's with an MBP, and I just use the built-in keyboard (oh, do I miss the numpad, though).

    My desktop, which sees more use by my wife than I, has the aluminium Apple Wired keyboard (full sized--we both love that keyboard) and an MX1100 (which is a good size for my wife's small hand, somewhat surprisingly).

    The MX1100 is actually a pretty good second choice to the Revolution, though I miss the auto-switch between ratcheted and free scrolling when I'm at that computer more than I'd have thought. It doesn't look quite as sexy, either, although I have a feeling it might actually be better ergonomically.

    The Apple alu keyboard is incredibly good for ergonomics, in my uneducated-but-RSI-prone-view, because it's so thin it doesn't put any kink in your wrists and the short-throw keys require little pressure to actuate.

    Home server/media center mini has a white-era Apple bluetooth keyboard and a Kensington Slimblade Media mouse (looks dead sexy and has play controls on the underside, though I wouldn't want to use it for an extended period).
