    Do you know?

    An exceptional printer (not an all-in-one please) for less than $200?

    A great cordless keyboard and mouse for less than $100?

    In case I wasn't clear - I'm looking for a cordless keyboard and cordless mouse both for a combined total of $100 or less.

    For about two years I have been using the Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop 1000. I have not had any problems with this wireless keyboard and mouse. I think it was on sale at Office Depot for $40.

    Inkjet or laser jet (color or black-and-white) printer?

    Color inkjet.

    Thanks for the wireless desktop link. I'll give it a look. How far from your computer do you use it?

    Logitech MX 5500 Revolution has been the best Keyboard/mouse set up I have ever used.

    I sit about 8' from computer. Currently using cheap ($60 at Best Buy full price) Logitech Lx300. It's old, been dropped onto tile countless times. Getting a little unresponsive and cranky. Time for an upgrade.

    new, this is above my budgeted amount - but who ever let a budget get between them and a new toy?

    How long have you used this?

    Is the bluetooth connection available during boot-up? I mean, can you bring up the BIOS, Set-up, select an alternate OS, etc. during boot-up using the keyboard?
