    As as long as they whole set match and they are the same colour as the kit, I don't give a toss

    Personally I have no preference, though its really up to the person ordering I suppose, I would prefer they all match so all of one brand with an order and I just prefer USB to a PS2 connector wise, the Cherry mice we got with one order were moaned about a fair bit though by staff and pupils alike and are not the best, though they are still installed to this day in one IT suite

    Echoing above, I would not mind as long as I knew at point of ordering and they were the same batch. 20 identical machines with 20 of the identical keyboards.

    As long as the mouse and keyboard match across the suite they're in, I don't care
    We've got plenty of Stone's with Microsoft keyboards and mice. Although when kids vandalise the mice (I just can't get used to mouses ) we give them carp old PS/2 ones.

    Generally we don't care if it even has a keyboard or mouse... but then we are odd.

    83.3% don't care, yeah this is what I voted for

    Half of them will be broken within a month if that anyway.

    We've had a lot of kit off you. Keyboards and mice have been great.

    The biggest gripe is unboxing them all!

    Depends really, if buying for a suite then would want them all matching, keyboards anyway, not too fussed on mice. If it was a one off tben suppose missmatched would be OK unless its to replace some in an existing suite. I personally like things to match and look right. No complaints with what you have supplied so far.
