Keyboard/Mouse

Razer BlackWidow Stealth ($139.99) http://store.razerzone.com/store/razerusa/en_US/pd/prod...
Anyone have experience with these keyboards? Or have any other suggestions with the above criteria? I may order the keyboard first to use the laptop.

As for the mouse I am really unsure.

Your first 3 links are not working as for the rest seems really solid although if your waiting a month anyway might I suggest waiting to see how the competition is before you jump in bed with crossfire because it may drop significantly in price.

Fixed the links, all links working now. I could be buying within the week to a month+. But I will be watching for future updates/releases and change accordingly.
