    Anyone Know Where I Can Get A Wireless Mouse and Keyboard To Be Used For A Laptop?

    I use my laptop for watching films when connected to my tv, just wondering if anyone knew where I could get one. Also would need it to work from about 3 - 4 meters away?
    Thanks for any help

    Wouldn't you find a remote control better?

    A remote control wont control my laptop, just the tv functions. I want to be able to use the laptop from afar while its connected to the tv.

    Well of course, that's obvious, but you said that you use it for watching films? A remote (depending on the type) will allow you to control any videos and DVDs that you watch on your laptop, through to music. I would question how far away you could sit to use a laptop anyway, and it be worthwhile, if you have any use other than media in mind.

    try this - buy a six inch ruler thats what i did. ordered 3 days ago havent got it yet

    To add to the above, just to clarify, if you do want a keyboard and mouse, any wireless keyboard/mouse will work with a laptop.

    Sorry I meant films stored on my hard drive, I forgot to say that!!! I also would like to use it when connected to the internet but the lead connecting my laptop to tv is very short. Just wondered if I could get something like a wireless mouse and keyboard to control it from my sofa. God I sound soooo lazy!!!

    if you have an asda near you they have a wireless set its about £15 the make is trust, which is normally not very good but this pack is great.

    Do you have Vista?

    All wireless Input devices are USB these days so they'll work as well on a laptop as they will on a desktop or HTPC.

    try this baby
