    bluetooth has a pretty short range compared to rf, but how far away do you plan on setting up your keyboard and mouse?

    probably not. but that would be cool. you can do it with a rf mouse and keyboard like MacAlly's RF Multimedia Keyboard & Mouse. Just get a USB extension cable, and hide the USB RF transmitter somewhere near your couch.

    i guess you could do the same with a bluetooth adapter, but i dont know how many devices one adapter can support

    *laugh* Are you going to be able to see your computer rman? *grin* I believe an adapter can support many many devices.. I believe.. although they all have to share the airwaves and the input port.. hmm.. that is a good question. We should do some research on that one..

    i found a pdf sheet that compares Infared, RF and Bluetooth.

    http://www.clarinetsys.com/site/down..._Bluetooth.pdf

    apparently bluetooth only supports up to 8 devices at a time

    Good to know, although I have no idea how I would ever use 8 devices on bluetooth, but then again who knows what the future has to bring

    well you saw how fast USB caught on. i have a USB hub with 8 things plugged in, but im afraid it will take a few years for bluetooth to have the bandwidth capabilities of USB

    Why not just go with the 23" Studio Display to compliment your new wireless keyboard and mouse
