PC gaming in your living room

Hello,
I would like more comfort in PC gaming from my couch. Currently using a pillow for mouse pad with wireless mouse and keyboard. As you can imagine this is woefully inadequate. I was looking at lapdesks to use but im unsure if there is one wide enough to use with full size keyboard and still have mouse room. Does anybody game on their t.v.'s with this setup? Thanks for any help.

  1. Get a large plank. It's more comfortable than you may think. I use it for gaming while lying in bed... :D
  2. Have a look at: www.hammacher.com/publish/76047.asp

    There are quite a few different types on different sites that might make life alittle easier.
  3. I use a laptop on my lap and mouse on the cushion next to me, works pretty darn well.

    although if you're using your TV as monitor might be a bit problematic, I agree
  4. that looks a lot better aesthetically, I sure as hell hope the angle on that is adjustable, because the angle they got in photos on their front page is horrendous, who would do any form of typing in that position is beyond me

    I use this:
    http://store.lapgear.com/techno/mobile
    This can be bought at Staples for around $20.

    with a Microsoft Arc Keyboard (they are small)
    http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/en-ca/p/arc-keyboard

    and either a wireless G700 mouse or a Razer Mamba 2012 (not chose yet)
    You need a good wireless mouse with at least 500Hz/sec response rate, else it lags during gaming. I used to suck at Battlefield 3 with a normal mouse and the G700 (the first one I tried) made a whole lot of difference.

    YOu'll also need a mouse pad.
