Default 2 Keyboards/Mouse Question?

I was wondering if its possible to have a set of normal keyboard & mouse, and then have another set of wireless keyboard & mouse functioning at the same time.

The reason I ask is, I want to plug my computer into my tv and surf the internet, type papers, etc. while sitting on my couch and bed. While having it still working when I sit at my desk. Thanks.

Yup, works with no problem...but don't expect two mice pointers to appear. Just need to have the inputs as for the two wired and two receivers!

Cool, I was going to buy a laptop just so I could sit on the couch. I think I just saved some money.

I take it you only have one PS/2 socket for a mouse and a keyboard, so you'll most likely be looking for an USB keyboard. Or get a PS/2-USB converter, I'm sure they're around.

Absolutely. I've used both PS/2 & USB as well as all USB (as it is now)...as PS/2 is becoming a premium choice these days.
