  • What is your favorite mouse/keyboard for graphic design?

    My old keyboard is on its very last leg, and I am going to be getting a new one soon. I do a lot of graphic design and digital art, so I'm trying to decide what would be the best keyboard and mouse for this type of work. I have debated the apple keyboard and mighty mouse since I use a mac computer, but I think I will probably go with a 2 button mouse instead. I want one that is comfortable, looks good with my mac, and most importantly is very responsive and does a great job with this kind of work. Anyone have any suggestions?

    I have a older Mac Keyboard (white), and recently purchased a wireless mighty mouse. Both of which I love! If I upgraded my keyboard to a newer apple aluminum one, it would be for the cool factor and wireless.

      the mighty mouse *is* a two button mouse (it's actually five, if you can get the ones on the side to work), but i've got a microsoft laser mouse i'm fond of. i can't stand microsoft, but they make good mice. when that one blows, though, i'm going to get a razer pro click: http://www.razerzone.com/p-99-proclick-v16.aspx

      i would not trade my apple aluminum keyboard for any keyboard right now. it's the best apple keyboard i've used since the old extended II keyboard. small, lightweight, good response.

        I use PCs so whatever that is worth in regards to mac compatibility. But I have always had good experiences with Logitech mice. I have had one for over 7 years that I still use with my laptop. As well as a newer one for my desktop.

          I totally agree with you there. I love the new apple keyboard. I'm lucky that I have it at home and a work now. When I type on a normal keyboard, it feels like hard work because the buttons are just so huge.

            I'd definitly go with the new keyboard, just on the fact it won't collect as much gunk and dirt. I have a mac and I just have a cheapie 2 button logitech mouse. It works and that's all I care about. I know...how shallow of me! But, it is what it is.

              I'm glad to hear all these positive reviews of the new Apple keyboard, I've been considering getting one. I definitely agree on the gunk and dirt factor, the white keyboard I have with the clear plastic enclosure is impossible to clean, unless I feel like taking the whole thing apart...which I don't.

                On my mac, I'm using the Apple keyboard with a Logitech Mx1000 wireless mouse.

                On PC, it's a Logitech S510 keyboard with Logitech VX Revolution Notebook mouse.

                    I have one of these at my home and I love it, plus the batteries last for about 4-5 months.

                      I'm pretty sure almost any mouse is compatible back and forth, correct me if I'm wrong tho.

                          I love logitech! Apple looks nice but not ergonomic enough.

                            love the aluminum board and mighty mouse. Regular plug in though...
                            The mighty mouse EATS batteries (from watching my boss change his all the time) and the wireless keyboard does not have a numeric pad which might not seem that crazy but I wouldnt want to be without it.

                              dude i have the same keyboard and mouse and they rock so hard! i haven't had to change the batteries and i got it in january. the keyboard took a little getting used to but now it feels weird using a normal keyboard.

                                I quite like it to be honest, it's not too stuffed but it's clean, easy to remember! Well done Dan.

                                Two phones ago I downloaded an app just to check that a client's QR code was linking properly when printed. 4 years later now, and that app has never been used again....
