If you are writing proposals for World Bank Projects in Third World countries for a Consulting Firm, then I say keyboard, especially if you have to type all day. However, I have been using my DELL keyboard that came with my PC 5 years ago, and it's OK.
If you are gaming, then a laser mouse from Logitech is the only way to go.
If you are doing a lot of graphics and need to use your mouse a helluva lot, then an MX1000 type laser mouse which is very comfortable is great.
I hope that helped.
