For those of you that want to know: I recommend NO keyboard!! 🙂 Actually, I have no preference when it comes to a keyboard, so as long as you have one, you are good to go. You can get standard keyboards for $10-15 in most stores. A network card will also be a requirement for some of you that have broadband, if they didn’t include one with your service.

Total Price: $1949
