So i have run into a bit of an annoying conflict with my computer tower... The Corsair obsidian 900D is a really big but beautiful case, but can only fit properly in one part of my room, which turns out to be on the complete opposite of the room, which is at least 15 feet away. I want to be able to use the PC from my bed where I am, so does anybody know of a good route to go in order to communicate with my PC? Yes i have a spare laptop if that can be used, and if I am referred to a piece of hardware I can use, may I have a company name that sells the product as well? Thank you!

TeamViewer, or the RDP built into Windows.

Wireless KB/M ??

I use a Logitech MK520 from 15-feet or so -- it has a solid feel ... and On/Off switches !

TeamViewer is neither WiFi nor LAN cable. It can converse with whatever PC you tell it to.

For a hardware solution, for my HTPC on the other side of the room I use a Lenovo Mini keyboard

Are you thinking about Bluetooth KB/M over WiFi ??

Typical wireless KB/M have a USB dongle that you simply plug into a port on your computer ...

I have been using Mouse Without Borders to control my HTPC from my gaming machine, lightweight install and it works well. Setup was really easy and it does everything I need it too, even can drag files between machines without having to map drives or browse the network. I think it can only handle 4 systems total, but for what you are wanting that sounds fine.

It runs over a wired or Wifi connection, and even on a slow Wifi connection it is stable, just a little laggy/jumpy, which is fine if you are not trying to game on the client machine.
