    Need Wireless Desktop with strong signal
    I'm getting ready to buy a mac mini to run as a home theater console. I need to buy a wireless desktop but I am having trouble finding specs that indicate signal strength will extend at least 15 to 20 feet. I think 6 feet is a standard, but could be wrong. Does anyone have recommendations? I would prefer a cheap solution but functionality comes first.

    Well, I believe the standard spec for Bluetooth is 30 feet. So, any wireless keyboard/mouse combo running on Bluetooth should meet your needs. Other RF technologies might be hit or miss (because they're not aligned under a standard set of specs, like Bluetooth).

    Check out Apple's new wireless keyboard - it should be just about perfect for a media center application.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
