    hello,
    i use a computer all day at college and then come home and use a pc quite alot.
    i want to get a track ball mouse to help avoid getting rsi
    i dont know what budget i have for the mouse.
    i dont have a prefence of make.
    best reccomendations would be on personal experience of owning the item and using it for a period of time.
    it needs to be compatible with windows vista but im sure all trackball mouse are.
    you can surgest wired and wireless versions.
    also maybe concidering a more Ergonomic keyboard.
    thanks in advance

    The wired version is the one I'd also recommend. Excellent trackball that's easy to use with a perfect shape. Couldn't recommend it more.

    For ergonomic keyboards, the Microsoft NEK 4000 is my recommendation. I've always been partial to MS keyboards and this one has been perfect.

    :p
    Ha! Admittedly I'm not up to snuff on parent-tricking anymore, but try the whole "health issue" and "wrist stress" angle! Worth a shot! :p
