    for the wireless keyboard and the magic mouse how many hours of straight usage can you get out of them before replacing the batteries?

    I can't speak for the Magic Mouse, as I prefer Logitech mice, but I get 4-6 months of use from a set of batteries in the Apple Wireless Keyboard.

    are you using any specific batteries or just normal AA Duracells or something along those lines? I could get use to the 4-6 months of usage time lol

    The Magic Mouse is horrible in terms of battery life. We find we're replacing the batteries in ours at least once a week, if not more.

    Yea, we use rechargeable so it's not as bad as it could be. The keyboard is great on the other hand.
