    Hello,

    I would like to watch my (near) future home cinema by lying on my sofa bed. I will have a PC connected to it. The problem is that I don't think it is going to be very convenient to use standard keyboard/mouse while lying.
    I was thinking one of those keyboards with build-in trackball.

    Any more ideas?

    It's a mouse with a difference. It can be held and waved about in the air to move the mouse cursor, so you don't needa surface to operate it - ideal if you're sat infront of your TV

    I've just got a BTC 9019URF keyboard with built-in joystick for controlling the cursor. It's apparently the same unit as supplied with the Elonex Artisan, and I like it. It's cheap, compact, with nice big grab handles at each side. The joystick is not as quick as a mouse, but it's fine for general surfing if you use the built-in scroll buttons.

    You can get it at www.pcnextday.co.uk (look under "Gaming Devices")
