Default which wireless keyboard / mouse to buy?

hello.. i currently have the Logitech MX 3200 (wireless, laser mouse)

what I like about it -- the mouse and keyboard "feel" and its wireless.

what i dont like about it --- its getting old, messing up (main reason for new one)
-- i do not use any of the 'features'
-- it does not have rechargable batteries
-- don't like the USB connector (for the wireless connection)

SO... what is out on the market now?

does ANYONE use the features on a keyboard? I mean, keyboards these days have a ton of crap on them (mine has: a slide bar for dynamic search & zoom, clock, phone, radio/dvd controls, and other keys i don't know what they do)

so maybe its me--- does anyone find some feature very USEFULL that I should be aware of?

what I do want:
VERY percise mouse movement/control -- i assume I need the "laser"
wireless as I want the freedom and I hate cords on my desk
i've had logitech for several years now-- i assume I will stay with them?

anyone recommend a wireless mouse/keyboard combo set?\

I have wanted a Mx air for a while which is suppose to be quite an effective gaming mouse aswell as gyroscopic. The G7 is meant to be very good and I would expect the logitech MX revolution to be good aswell but haven't heard any feedback on it. Keyboard wise I don't use any of the funky features but the ultimate gamers keyboard is the Zboard supposedly personally I use a Enermax Aurora which looks great, with high quality.
