'Any fool can be uncomfortable', as the old army saying goes, and it's certainly easy enough to find yourself aching after a lengthy tour of keyboard and mouse duty.

Why not choose a more ergonomic keyboard, a better pointing device than the mouse -- or even speak directly into your PC? Read our reviews to find out which product will suit you best.
