"...in PC World - the Microsoft IntelliMouse TrackBall. This mouse usually sells for £17.99, but I was lucky to find one reduced to £10, as it was an exchanged product. This means that it has minor cosmetic imperfections (i.e. the packaging had already been opened) as it had been previously been exchanged by a PC World customer. Besides the fact that a piece of selotape held the box together, there was nothing wrong with the product itself and I went ..." Read review

"...move it around. On the Microsoft IntelliMouse trackball the ball is placed on top of the mouse, and all you have to do is place you finger on the ball and with ease it goes to where you want it too.

So, instead of moving your normal mouse up and down your desk, which can take quite a lot of space simply roll the grey ball. It’s very easy to use but does ..." Read review

And now with a trackball...

AdvantagesTrackball is good for some

DisadvantagesTrackball is bad for some and this one can be a little unresponsive

"...lighter side of the mouse, Microsoft realized that it couldn't just create mice, since there were other folks out there that were into trackballs. The trackball is simply a mouse upside down really, with a ball your thumb or fingers move around, with the buttons in various places. Microsoft got cute with the trackball, and decided to give it a nice glossy surface, and make it quite ergonomic. The index finger controls the ball, while the middle ..." Read review

Trackball

Advantagesease of use, well built, comes with s/port & ps/2 connecters.

Disadvantagesdoesn't like dirt, only right handed people could use it well

"I bought the Trackball mouse so that my kids could have more fun using the computer and in a way they have been. As you'd expect the build quality is very good, its packaged well and comes with a CD rom for easy installation. The mouse itself is quite big but remember you don't have to move it around the desk therefore theres no reason why you have to keep on lifting it to reposition the mouse cursor hence the reason I bought. It also has a scroll ..." Read review
