    its possible if you buy 2 of the exact combos. Just buy 2 separate kits or even better, 2 different brands .

    No they don't normally interfere. each one when paired uses a different frequency or pairing combination. I have a desktop & 2 laptops all 3 using wireless mice. All use exactly the same make & model mouse & receiver.
    The only problem I frequently get is mixing the mice up & tearing my hair out when one won't work, until I realise I am trying to use the wrong mouse.

    Now I put a small label on bottom of mouse saying whichh computer it belongs to.
