Editing Tools

Hey everyone I am looking to buy a new keyboard and mouse. I edit mainly in Final Cut Pro and After Effects, but I sometimes use Premiere for certain things. I am looking for the best keyboard and mouse for the job. Keyboard wise I sort of like this one.
Bella DV Keyboard 3.0 for Mac and Windows 4200 - B&H Photo Video
I dont need a program specific color coded keyboard, but I do like the idea of being able to easily map the keys and having a jog/shuttle function

As far as the mouse goes I have been seeing some people swear by track balls and others that have become fans of the new apple magic mouse. I am simply looking for the most comfortable and best functioning mouse for editing and compositing. Any suggestions would be great.

7D (50mm f1.8, 28-135mm f3.5), HDR-SR1, Manfrotto sticks. FCP Studio, Master Collection CS5, Avid MC, Shake

'Tain't fancy but I swear by it. I do not now, nor have I ever liked rodentia.

I've been using the Bella DV keyboard for over a year, and I like it. I also got the NeoLite LED light which they sell. It's a nice convenience.
Can't help you with mice or trackballs... I just use a simple generic mouse.
