Wired or Wireless?

Every few months I seem to go back between wired and wireless keyboard and mouse.  Wireless is good because there is less clutter on the desk and greater portability, but that has a trade off with batteries, signal strength, and overall responsiveness.  Wired has the extra cables on your desk but you don’t have to worry about switching batteries and seems to have a much more responsive user experience.

In my line work I spend most of my time working with a keyboard, mouse and monitor.  You can add your chair and desktop as frequently used items as well.  As a musician fine tunes his instruments and a plumber chooses the best tool for the job so must we, the friendly everyday office computer workers.

Most of your interaction with a PC goes from your fingertips through the keyboard and into the computer.  Most of us don’t have much say in what type of computer we use at work but keyboards are relaltively inexepnsive and easy to customize.  Most employers won’t have a problem with you swapping out your standard issue keyboard for something most personal and in the end more productive.

The first step to choosing a keyboard with wether you want one that is wired or wireless.  Keyboards not spend too much time moving around on your desk so a wired keyboard doesn’t seem like too much of an imposition.

What about mousepad?  Yes or no?  If yes, which kind?  Round, square, smooth surface, foam surface?
