    I had a gift card to Best Buy this week and bought a wireless mouse. It works great and now I am thinking about getting a wireless keyboard. The only problem is that everywhere I look for one, I can not find the keyboard by itself. I can only find bundles including the keyboard and mouse. Does anyone know where I could get a keyboard only????

    Well, yes, but there is a chance that if you have two separate relays for the input signal that the will interfere with each other and result in erratic - or no - performance.

    Which is why most come bundled with one receiver.

    Personally, I hate cordless peripherals b/c of their need for expensive batteries; to go cordless for me would necessitate the purchase of even more NiMH rechargeable batteries.

    Besides, my keyboards and mice stay on my desks 24/7. I can't think of any way cordless ones would help me. But YMMV.

    I'd take that new mouse back and get the bundle with the store credit, myself.
