They buy them from an OEM.

meh after the latest crop of console systems (PS2 XBox GCube and such). I dug out my sega genesis and left it at that.
I didn't like spending that much money on a system just to keep buying the same 4 or 5 games over and over again with different names and eye candy.

if you talk about good keyboards, apple´s bluetooth keyboard is excellent. i use it along with logitech mx900 bluetooth mouse on my powerbook. the mouse works nicely with the hand support of my leisure chair (something like this )

Tell me about it. It's like the best media box ever. A modded Xbox with XBMC hooked up on a LAN is awesome . I wonder if the new Xbox 360 will allow the same "freedom" when modded

Seriously, it's good to have a Xbox even if you are not a gamer, just for the possibilities you can do with it: MP3 player, DVD player, DivX player, Online Radio. Heck, you can even put Linux on it if you want and use as a PC

Happy Hacker

This is the keyboard that I use at work.

Happy Hacker

I've had mine for a few years, and it works great. Leaves me plenty of desktop space too.

Don't use it at home because it isn't very game friendly, and my girlfriend wouldn't like it. But it is great at work unless you are one of those IT folk that come to mess with my PC. To make it even more friendly, I've switched it to a Dvorak layout as well.

I like my microsoft multimedia keyboard, nice quiet key presses and soft to the touch, I also use a MS optical mouse.

I also have one of those IBM Model M jobbies, with a Dell logo and I don't particularly like it, its far too noisy keeps the whole neighbourhood up when I'm working at night, lol. At the minute my sister's using it since she poured her drink over her own.

Das Keyboard

I'd love one of those too, but they are really expensive, and that's before shipping fees!
No way, I'll wait until they sell it cheaper or until I win the jackpot in Vegas.

Wow, I wonder if that would cut my coding time by half... That does not include the heavy unavoidably long compile times of course. Is it the greatest revolution to the NetHack experience?

My wife has cerebral palsy, so she carries a frogpad around in her purse. Her brother uses one when he's scripting webpages so he can keep one hand on the mouse. I'm thinking about getting one too, if it'll support Linux.

Actually i have nothing against MS keyboards/mice, since they are very comfortable to use and are well built.
Maybe they should move into hardware manufacturing instead.
