Question that I'm sure someone here can help me with:

The fellas seem to get asked this every few months - what is the best compact/lightweight wireless keyboard for light interfacing with a living room PC? I know Vinny and Brad have both answered this in the past, and I've done some forum mining but can't find the answer. I'm not looking for something to game on or anything, just for navigating and opening programs and such. I know they've both talked about an integrated keyboard/trackpad that suffices, so I was wondering if anyone else remembered or has a relatively inexpensive recommendation.

Something with an easy off switch would also be great since we've got an 18-month-old who loves to get into things with buttons.

I use a PS4 controller with a virtual keyboard, but I have no clue what Brad and Vinny recommend.

I should add bits to this: using on a Mac Mini (older), and it does need to have the trackpad built in. Don't know if that changes any recos.

This is actually regular keyboard, but I would think it should work pretty well as a couch keyboard as well. No track pad or anything, but you'll never have to think about batteries again.

Logitech K750

@pillclinton: I'll second this. It works great on my media center PC.

Yep, the K400 is pretty great. Not too big, but big enough for typing to be doable, good battery life and range, and semi decent trackpad.
Been using one for my living room pc for ages.

I'm using my K400 in bed right now. It's a good buy.
