    Got a question,

    I have my laptop hooked up to my tv, I want to be able to sit on the couch with a wireless keyboard/mouse and surf the net.

    Keyboard wont be a problem, but i have no place to put a mouse. I know they make mice you can use in the air, but i have no idea what they are called and if they are any good or not.

    Anybody have any suggestions or comments?

    They make this handheld USB remote that is for presentations and there's a button you can press and it acts like a mouse in mid air. My old high school teacher used to use one but I can't remember the name of it. I'll look around and see if I can find it for ya.

    EDIT:
    It was something like THIS. Manly used for presentations but also functioned as a mouse.

    post 100..But yeah I think for just messing around on the internet you don't really need a mouse and could you a touch pad easily. You wont be able to play games or anything intense, it can be done but will suck.
