Geek Gear: Ergonomic Mouse

About a week ago I asked you readers to help me find an ergonomic mouse that's both hand and eye friendly. My mom uses a simple mouse she bought with her laptop and is constantly bugging me about finding her a better option.

dali137 bookmarked this Logitech TrackMan Wheel, which seems to be a favorite among computer users seeking an ergonomic balance. "I use ONLY this mouse, I own one for home and one for travel with my powerbook," says dali137. "I can just lay back on the couch and prop the mouse on a pillow and geek away. It also comes in a cordless model as well as other configs of the trackball idea."

For another ergonomic mouse idea,

cravinsugar has a couple great finds, including the Adesso SmartCat Pro USB Glidepoint Touchpad. Priced at $79.95, the Smart Cat Pro is all about comfort and control. It features one-touch scroll and zoom, and distinctive sounds for each operation.

You can check out all the bookmarked ergonomic mice on TeamSugar.

The best pointing device I've EVER used BY FAR has been my Microsoft Trackball Explorer. I SWEAR by that thing. People laugh at me when I play Quake and Unreal Tournament with a trackball, until I completely smoke them. Unfortunately Microsoft discontinued them so they're like $150 now. :( Personally I can't stand thumb-driven trackballs like the one from the article; I find them too sensitive & not sensitive enough at the same time. I like big trackballs that I can get 3 fingers on. It looks like logitech has a big trackball now, might have to try that when my current Microsoft Explorer Trackball bites the dust. http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/products/details/US/EN,CRID=2150,CONTENTID=5006

I remember when the track balls were in computers before the invention of the mouse came along. I would always just spin the thing like crazy in pixelated paint programs. I want one just for the childhood memories :)
