There's a few problems.

As always, it may or may not work with the game!

And it MUST NOTE WINDOWS 7. This one does not so unless it's cheap or free, PASS.

a laptop is a pc, just a different type

a laptop is a pc, just a different type. unless it says Mac or Apple, all laptops are PC's. however not all PC's are laptops. Welcome to set theory. anyway, if it says it will work for a pc, it should work on your laptop. just be sure of the brand.

We @ Psychsoftpc are very big on using Logitech for all of our keyboards, mice and gaming controllers as they work well and are well supported by the manufacturer with constant driver updates. So I'd recommend looking at one of theirs.
