Most of our keyboards are filthy and a study done in 2008 suggests that it had 150 times the recommended limit for bacteria (five times as filthy as a toilet seat). What lies beneath the keys on your keyboard? I say dirt, hairs, pet fur, food crumbs, dandruffs, etc.
I am currently using the free mouse pad that was given to me when I bought Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars back in 2007! It has been 5 years and I can’t image how much dirt has been collected on the surface of the mouse pad, so it is time for me to change!
Bought the Logitech MK260 Wireless Combo (Keyboard & Mouse) from Challenger for S$39 (member’s price is S$36.90). It is one of the cheapest branded wireless keyboard and mouse combo that I can find in Challenger. The other option is Wireless Desktop 800 which is retailing for S$39 (member’s price is S$37).
Some notable features of the Logitech MK260 includes use of 128-bit AES encryption for encrypting data transfer between the keyboard and receiver, spill-resistant keyboard and battery life that can go up to 24 months for the keyboard and five months for the mouse.
I also ordered the Apple USB SuperDrive for S$98 together with the Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter.
The only reason why I got it is because my brother and Li Xiang are getting their MacBook Air/MacBook Pro with Retina Display soon and I thought I might as well get the drive so that I can share it with them (and also blog about it). My brother would probably need it to install the Adobe Creative Suite 6 Design and Web Premium, and Li Xiang would probably need it to burn her artwork for printing shops or for her clients.
