Default External keyboard?

Anyone know where I can get one? Perhaps a mouse and keyboard combo?

wot? I've never heard of an 'internal' keyboard, the only ones I know about ARE external.

As to where you can get them, pretty much every pc shop will sell them. It'll cost you about $30AU for a combo set, or about $20US

An external mouse and keyboard for a laptop would be the same as a desktop........so it shouldn't be hard to find.

Any electronics store basically

Core i7 920 @ 3.0Ghz
6gb G.Skill 1600mhz/9-9-9-24
Corsair 750XT
EVGA GTX 260---216core
WD 640gb

The Logitech Alto is pretty nifty, decent wireless keyboard with an integrated laptop stand that brings the monitor to eye level, plus helps quite a bit in keeping the laptop cool. Integrated USB hub too. Check it out.
