Attaching keyboard to portable?

Hi chums,

A question on behalf of my sister who is thinking about getting a new PC....

She's not sure whether to get a portable/notebook or a desktop,(i.e. non portable.)....

It seems that one of the considerations is the use of mouse and keyboard if a portable is opted for....

I believe I'm correct in saying that, generally speaking, most portables will allow you to connect a "proper" mouse, so you don't have to use the finger tracking thingy.... can anyone correct me on that?

Is the same true of keyboards? She is comfortabel with the "proper" keyboard she has and wants to know if it could be connected to a portable?

Thanks in anticipation,

click here for a laptop splitter cable, I use one to connect a keyboard and mouse when I know I'm going to spend some time on the laptop, the ergonomics are much better than using the integrated keyboard and pad.

That information will be very useful in the decision making process!
