    but then you can't plug it in to the kvm either :P

    Does the kvm not have the option of an external psu? My ancient old belkin could be powered by ps2 or with a supplied adaptor.

    you could try USB -> PS2 adaptors or get a new KVM (probably at a similar price to the Targus jobbie and you can ebay your old one to make some money back).

    But Apple do such cool Wireless keyboards and don't forget the 'Mighty Mouse'.

    Did you hear about Jonathan Ive? The British Designer who gave us the iPod and iMac designs... He was on this years honours list and has been given a CBE by the queen.

    @kevinmcaleer: Indeed Mr Ive was on the honours list but his efforts in furthering the design of computers doesn't help Russ who presumably has a number of boxes - mainly PCs.

    Lol, you'll be trying to install Windows or Linux on it next, and yes, you can...

    I was listening to a podcast in the car yesterday as i drove down to Derby from Bolton, about this guy that has installed Linux on his iPod so that he can play tetris. £300 for a tetris console, hmm, there is a huge voice shouting in my head 'WHY?'.

    Like my mother used to say, 'just because you can, doesn't mean you should'.
