:(. Yes, it's the Wireless Multimedia Keyboard from Microsoft. God, do I hate this fricking keyboard! every night I'm recharging batteries, it's a nightmare. I love the feel and the perfect balance of comfort and clack though, so I'm still using it (until I can cough up some dough of a regular USB version).

It came with a wireless mouse too, but I've given up on that as well, considering the amount of charging I have to do, because of my surplus of gaming hours.

Really? I just used regular alkaline batteries in mine (both keyboard and mouse) and they lasted about 6 months. My problem was the keyboard had terrible wireless and I would lose keystrokes (especially holding down CTRL and another key :/). The mouse never gave me a problem, and when I sold the set, I bought the same keyboard, only wired, and got another wireless MS mouse. They both work great for me, and the mouse has had the same batteries for around 8 months now!

Something to remember, the battery usage tends to depend heavily on how close the wireless transceiver is to the devices, so keep it as close as possible (without putting it too close and distorting the signal)

Well, figured I should contribute.



Main screen's a Lenovo L220x at 1920x1200 hooked up to the MacBook Pro, and the second screen is hooked up to my Linux box (not pictured). The small laptop is an Acer Aspire One. The MacBook's a 2.5GHz Core 2 Duo, with 4GB RAM and a 320GB 7200RPM HD, and the Linux box is a E6400 Core 2 Duo with 2GB RAM. Not pictured is my file server, which has an AthlonX2 4000+, 4GB RAM,5 320GB drives and a 500GB drive, running Server 2003.

I'm not exactly sure how it works, but it connects all of your computers to one keyboard. I think it uses your network to do it.

Yeah it uses your network. You setup a server for the keyboard and mouse and connect one or multiple clients to it. It runs as a service on windows and comes with a handy installer for OS X (never used it for linux but there is a linux version too).

Basically you setup where the monitors are positioned with each other (similar to when you setup dual or multiple monitors) and it treats all the computers as one system with multiple monitors (ie: the mouse spans all of them). The clipboard is even shared if you set it up right :)

Windows: Synergy
OS X: SourceForge.net: SynergyKM
