Improve Studies with A Wireless Compact Keyboard and Mouse Set

Laptops are great and portable, but sometimes it’s actually easier to study and complete assignments with “old school” tools like a keyboard and mouse. They can give your student better functionality, and you can also preserve the life of the laptop’s trackpad and keyboard by using accessories instead. Check out these top picks.

You’ll like the fact that this keyboard and mouse set is designed with comfort in mind. The keyboard includes a built-in wrist pad, and the mouse is contoured to fit your hand perfectly.

With just two hours of charging, this keyboard and mouse set can run for 30 days before needing to be recharged. You’ll also like that the keyboard and mouse promise quiet-click keys.

This wireless keyboard and mouse set relies on just one USB receiver to connect both of the devices to your computer or laptop. You’ll like that no software is required to begin using them, so it’s a plug-and-play solution.

We like that the mouse in this keyboard and mouse set offers 1600 DPI for smooth tracking. You’ll also get one USB receiver for both items. Note, though, that this option isn’t fully compatible with Apple devices.

Expert Commentary

A wireless keyboard and mouse can provide you and your students with some flexibility if you’ve grown tired of staying in a fixed position on your PC. Consider choosing a wireless device with a wide range, which will help you operate them farther from your CPU or screen during presentations. Choose a pair that’s compatible with your handedness so you can improve your typing speed and accuracy.
