The recent trend in electronics has been keeping the wires off. That is, manufacturers try an alternative way to connect peripherals other than the usual wires.

And for PC user who wanted freedom from wires, a wireless keyboard will get the job done. For such need here are some of the best wireless keyboard in the market today.
Microsoft All-in-One Media Keyboard
There’s nothing flash about this keyboard. It’s grey, plasticky and functional. But it’s also a bargain if you’re looking for a wireless keyboard to float between the home office and the living room. That said, you wouldn’t want to type a novel on it: the keys lack feedback and are tightly placed. Unlike some, though, Microsoft hasn’t cut down the key size so it’s easy to hit a respectable pace. The trackpad is massive and supports multi-touch, for easy swiping, scrolling and zooming. If you’re not a fan of the left/right click buttons being built in – you always have to check where you’re hitting them–but it’s not a big issue. Best of all, the spill-resistant design means liquids stay on the surface rather than seeping in.
Logitech K480 Bluetooth Multi-Device Keyboard
Take three Bluetooth keyboards in to the study? Not if you buy the K480, which can pair with up to three devices at any one time: a dial at the top left lets you select 1, 2 or 3, and then you can flip between your PC, phone and tablet. That’s not the end of its skills, either. It can hold a phone and tablet simultaneously via its generous integrated cradle, should you wish to. The keys have an odd, round design. This gives the K480 a Fisher-Price feel and it’s not the most sophisticated when it comes to the overall “typing experience”. There’s not much tactile feedback–novelists need not apply–and little travel. And note that it weighs a hefty 820g, so isn’t designed for life in a bag. Nevertheless, this is a versatile keyboard that can, in particular, turn your tablet into a proper little computer. And it does that very well.

It’s powered by two AAA batteries, which slot in to the eponymous plastic “wedge”on the keyboard’s underside. It’s a bit irritating in the bag, but helps provide a natural typing angle. The plastic cover also doubles as a stand for your mobile device. It has some heft, easily supporting a tablet’s weight, and can be used with most devices via Bluetooth. The Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard isn’t cheap,but is perfect for life on the move.
