    I want to hear people's experiences with both the wired or wireless keyboard and mouse. Any issues with either? Is one better than the other? Any info would be great!

    I am using it for the new iMac and for graphic design work.

    Is a keypad important to you? If so, go wired. The bt keyboard doesn't have a keypad, making it unusable for some.

    They are both excellent keyboard and I highly recommend them.

    As for the mighty mouse...meh. The scroll ball always gets stuck, even when you clean it. I wouldn't buy another one.

    I've been using the BT MightyMouse since it came out. Works great, and is comfortable (for me, at least). It's precise enough for image work, though I usually switch to a Wacom tablet.

    I also purchased the new BT (aluminum) keyboard. It has a good feel and haven't had any issues with it. However, if you need the full layout (keypad, etc.) you might need to go with the wired version.

    I've been using a BT Mighty Mouse for a little over a month and I love it.

    I had to get used to the tracking (I think it uses a laser instead of traditional optical tracking), but that only took a couple of days. The battery still reads full, it doesn't disconnect from my computer and it works in Vista.

    I recommend it.

    You will love to get rid of all the cables.
    It's really fantastic to have an almost wireless desktop. :)
