Just had a quick question as I am about to order the parts for my computer build.

I am hooking this up in my media room so I will definately need something wireless as I sit about 15 feet from the screen.

Is it possible to run both the wireless XBOX controller AND a wireless trackball keyboard? I prefer the controller since I am mainly a console gamer, but would need the keyboard and trackball just for mormal computer useage like if I am surfing for info while playing.

Thanks.

If you can spend slightly more on the best of the best media room keyboards, look no further.

It's amazing. I've been using it in my living room for 3 years now. It's sleek. It's ****. It works from 3 rooms away if you need it to. It has a built in 'laptop-type' mouse pad that works flawlessly.

I promise you if you're using it for a MCPC in a living area of your house and you'll be using the 'computer' at least once a day for whatever (email, etc), you will love this keyboard.

Oh, and yes you can use both.

I will tell you this. If you're looking to use a keyboard and mouse at 15 feet away from its reciever, you absolutely must get bluetooth.

This was how I came to find the Edge initially. There aren't as many true bluetooth keyboards out there as you might think.

Wireless != Bluetooth

You might consider the less expensive version of the Edge.

It's marketed for the PS3, but as long as you pick up a bluetooth dongle for your PC (like $7-10), it should work just fine. It also has a built in track-pad.

No problem. Either one of those will make having your media pc that much better, as it removes all limits from where you sit and enjoy it.
