I have always like the quality and the ability of gyration. Much further than bluetooth, doesn't step on other keyboards and mice frequencies...truely a product beyond its time. I have installed 12 of these in a small area without them over-lapping eachother causing pointers to move on other computers or typing on other computers or cause interferance requiring resync or replacement.

I have a Logitech Wave. The feel of the keyboard might take some minutes to get used to, but I like it. I know you want one with a charging station, this one uses batteries (2xAA for keyboard and 2xAA for mouse), but I have not had to change them yet and I bought it almost a year ago (they still have the batteries that came with them). I notice no issues while gaming or anything like that.

And it is cheaper then the Microsoft combo I linked to. Might go with this.

You can map keys in Linux, you know.

I use them on Windows & Linux without any issues - there's a separate K750 Mac edition for Macs

I realise you meant light windows to let in sunlight; that's fine - I've used mine in a dark room before, the light emitted from most monitors is enough to keep it running as long as you keep it in the light path.

(who keeps people in rooms without windows? so mean).
