Any good WIRED keyboard/trackball or keyboard/trackpad combos?

I am having many issues with space on my desk at work. I provide web design and development services, and am in need of a good keyboard and trackball/trackpad device. I do like trackballs and pads so please do not laugh. I would just like to find a nice combo unit that is good quality with excellent precision. I currently use a logitech marble mouse and like it, but there is little room in my config. Can anyone point me to a few good options? I prefer a wired solution if possible.

Thanks, Bryan

  1. Is HulaPoint any good for precise work like Adobe Photoshop image editing?
  2. Does anyone know of these devices?
  3. Well, it's kinda you-against-the-world condition here (scratch head)... I'm not laughing, just curious: why would you prefer trackball mouse?

    As for the answer, I honestly have no idea. Input devices' manufacturers have left the trackball design years ago. Even if you do manage find it, it will be most likely an old stock item, which makes the quality compromised due to aging factor.

    As for the precision issue, since the trackball technology already reached its limit, the precision should be uniformed. That is assuming the mouse is made by a reputable manufacturer.

    Interesting issue though, I'll see what I can find.

    Do you know of any good keyboard and trackpad combos that may be better than a trackball? I am open to suggestion. I like a mouse and have some very high-end ones, but they bother my hand and wrist.

    Oh, I'm sorry. I thought it was track ball instead of track pad.

    Anyway, here's what I found:

    It seems that they focuses on the track pad concept. Hope this helps!
