30-50? Each, or total? You won't get much performance for that.

Cosidering my mouse was $80 and the keyboard I want is $60+... both wired, so no lag.

For a library manager? Browse Newegg's offereings, or check WallyWorld for the best price.

wireless could be convenient if the person moved around a lot and goes from place to place, or moves around a lot around his/her desk area while he/she is typing stuff, and then wireless. but usually in terms of cost effectiveness you can get a wired for cheaper then wireless.

i think last time I was in bb and in the market of a kb, those 2 were there on display...I am more inclined towards ergonomics, so prefer the MS...but of course I opted for my saitek e II from newegg

see if you can get your hands on them at a local bb...if any in your area
