what's the benefit, really? when i'm typing, i'm either at a laptop, or right @ my PC. i need a monitor, so unless that's wireless, you are still attached to the box. a wireless mouse i can see the utility, as you are physically moving it and sometimes the cord can get in the way of stuff, but a keyboard? seems like shimano indexing on a front derailleur; an answer in search of a question.
I use it at work and it works fine. The only benefit is picking it up to get some work space. I see no function, other than moving it and not having a wire. The mouse is fine too. You can get them for $60 or so, but I wouldn't if I didn't have a true need.
I agree with you. I've been doing CAD for 20 years...however, since i have gone back to school, this past year has been an eye opener as far as the subtleties of the peripherals of the dang computer........
To be honest, the freedom of moving the mouse and keyboard while doing legal research is quite intriguing...
a wireless setup would be nice. i hate when the mouse cord gets hung on something, or rubs against something else. keyboard...eh...it'd be nice. i like sitting farther away from my screen. right now i'm more than an arm's lenght away, and would like to be a little further back, but unless i want goofyass routing, i'm stuck with it.
I'm guessing that there may need to be restraint in regard to how far away one should sit from their computers.
I like the idea of it simply for the fact that while doing legal research, I can move the keyboard around a bit or even set it on top of the book itself. While it can be argued that you could do it now with a tethered keyboard and mouse, it still gets in the way when you have a LOT of books open and your researching, its just easier.
In an offic environment, it can get a bit crazy I imagine. And then there is the issue of security in an office environment.
