Nothing that cheap... But I really like my wireless logitech m510 mouse. As for keyboards, my logitech wireless keyboard is only "good enough"

Anything by LogiTech is pretty good, can't say the same for Verbatim. Stay away from wireless unless your PC is fast.

If you're willing to splurge:

I use one of my books as a mousepad, and like wire attached mouse.
Don't know about prices though, just whatever the store has, works for me.

Well I have a mouse in my drainage in the bathroom. That vermin won't get out unless he got a pad. So yes. I know a mouse and a mousepad, and I would charge no money to give it to you guys, if you even want it.

Uh, HOW are you 91 years old? So you have participated in WW2, or at least have seen it?

It is absolutely obvious that he is even older than that lol. Stop taking everything seriously, its obvious that he is 103 years old.

The best mouspads are plain and dark-coloured, fancy-appearing mousepads were only a worthwhile thing when we had ball-navigated mice that didn't run on lasers which can be confused by changing colours.

If you want a truly 'good mousepad' that is ergonomic for the wrist during heavy use of the computer, it's never going to be a cheap option.

Actually your price range is fine if you mean that's for each product.

A decent mousepad for ergonomic purposes is around $15. The cheaper ones can look nice and say they're ergonomic but the softness of the wrist-rest is often too much or too little.

This is something I'd recommend if you simply want a mousepad that feels nice or whatever. I personally don't think mousepads are necessary if your chair's arms are sufficiently built to rest on but if you want one that's decent and not super expensive, I recommend that mousepad.

Well, the 20 bucks is blown out of the water, but my Mac mouse has never seen a mousepad. In fact, none of the 3 Macs I've owned in my life needed mousepads.
