Default Help picking a wireless keyboard/mouse for basic use

i am planning on getting the Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop:comfort edition also known as Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop 3.0.

here are some links

http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/mo...s.aspx?pid=028

Now i was wondering if anyone has any good things about this desktop or if i shouldn't buy it at all. And if it is bad, which one do you recommand. My price limit is $80.

If this is a good one, how far does it go? I need it to go about 8-9 feet away from my desktop

also, i would like the batteries at last AT LEAST 1 month.

thanks

I would suggest that you save up and get bluetooth. RF isn't as responsive as bluetooth is.
