Too used to my Logitech mouse (an MX500 and now an LX8, both wireless) and Saitek Eclipse keyboard to part with either. If suddenly one day Eclipse keyboards ceased to exist on planet Earth, though, I'd probably just get a shiny new Apple keyboard.

Well, it depends on what you need I cant write on "standard" keyboard anymore. Keys sticking out of the keyboard are not for me, im so used to flat keyboards i just cant type on "normal" ones anymore. Thats why i like Apple Alu Keyboard so much cause it`s the only one real-flat keyboard i`ve seen, and to be honest i dont really care who is manufacturer of it - i wont change it for any other for a long time. But still, not sure about the mice...i like the feel of it, the shape etc. but this scrollbar is just...awww.

Once again I have to agree completely.
I'm very used to Apple's chicklet keyboard (both Desktop and MBP), I really couldn't miss them.

It feels very strange to type on a "normal" keyboard, it doesn't give me pleasure... and I normally love typing!

That is true. I purchased a used Apple keyboard. The most recent flat full keyboard and I love it. I ordered several more for work and now most of the computers I need to work on have the same setup.

We just ordered a new 24" iMac and it came with the new mini keyboard. Its a cool idea but I use the arrow keys and number pad frequently so its not the keyboard for me. They smash all the directional keys together making it difficult to use.

The reason I bought the apple keyboard is because of the key's functions and the need to get away from PS/2.

I've always been a keen fan of simple solid mice. To this end, I find the basic microsoft ones are actually very very good. I'm talking about mice such as these:

Mighty Mouse here.

Generally I like it, though the scroll ball stops scrolling in a certain direction every couple of days requiring me to rub it upside down on a stack of paper to clean it

Can't believe Apple's QA missed that one.

I love the mighty mouse and apple keyboard. I agree big bulky keyboards just feel weird to me now. I wish they'd make the bluetooth one in a full size flavor though. I personally don't like wireless keyboards and mice that require a usb dongle. It just wastes a usb port. Apple needs to replace the scroll ball on the MM with a touch sensitive area (which they do have a patent for i believe). I've taken mine apart 3 times to clean out the gunk on the rollers. Really, Apple? It didn't work well on pre-optical mice so why would it work as a scroll ball? Even with that headache though, I love the MM. All those big bulky Microsoft and Logitec mice are just an eyesore to me.

@ Taisto: I have like 5 sets of those mice and keyboards in all different colors.

And I use a Logitech MX-3000 set. The keyboard kicks the crap out of the flat one at the Apple Store. :P
