Default wireless keyboard mouse

hello, i have about 30 pounds to get a wireless keyboard mouce combo, one with a longish range (as far as possible) and i would prefer a rounded keyboard rather than those really small sqaure ones. I have been thinking of the microsoft desktop 1000 and the logitech ex110 but would be happy to get a different one, what would you suggest i bought?
thanks

I have this and its awesome
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16823126175

Sorry I dont know of any sites in the UK. The distance is very far, except when the batteries are getting low. I have layed in my bed to type papers with it and my computer is accross the room. Also the mouse does very well for gaming.

Here I found a website where you can get the keyboard/mouse combo that The Amish Kid suggested -

http://www.pcworld.co.uk/martprd/sto...&category_oid=

Although you said 30 pounds...so this may be out of your reach?

I have the MX3100 which is the same as the MX3000 but mine has the better mouse (MX1000 rather than the MX600) but the keyboard is the same. So all I can say is..the keyboard rocks...it's got really good range...sometimes I get it in the next room (and I have double bricks in my house lol). But yep, the keyboard is good, got a nice touch, nice buttons just overall quality.

Other keyboard/mouse combo's i've owned haven't been that great so I can't really recommend any..

its just a little out of my price range, if i bought a separate keyoard and separate mouse, would there be interferemce? because for a mouse i was thinking of
Microsoft Cordless Laser Mouse 6000 - Retail (KB-057-MS) (near the bottom)

I'm not really sure but I guess there wouldn't be a problem if you set them on different frequencys...but isn't that 27.95 for just a mouse? I thought you had 30 pounds in total for both keyboard and mouse lol.

Ah well....someone should be able to tell you the definite answer to the interference thingy, cos I'm not sure.
