Step 3: Keyboard and Mouse

I bought one of the more affordable miniature keyboard/mouse combos.  I also have a different model with the touchpad on the right side, but I had some problems with that one.  It did not always play nicely with my Pi, and the touchpad on the side hindered my typing. 

This keyboard is really nice for a few reasons.  One is the size.  It's small enough to carry around in your pocket.  It also has a backlight, and is rechargeable.  Did I mention the battery is replaceable?  That's not something you see in portable electronics these days. 

Anyway, make sure you plug the receiver into your Pi, and charge the keyboard for a few hours before using it for the first time.
