Re: buying cordless keyboard + mouse
I had a rechargeable one and it lasted about a week on a charge. I got a new one and it's supposed to last about 6 months or more without having to recharge batteries (the new one doesn't have rechargeable batteries). My friend has a logitech mouse similar to mine and hasn't had to change batteries in over 6 months so the claims are true I guess.
Desktop: Dell Dimension E510, 2.5GB RAM, Intel P4 3.0GHZ, 250GB HDD, Windows Vista Premium. Might not be the best, but the old girl is still running good.
