Mouse sometimes, but I really like my laptop's touchpad, as long as it's not for long periods of use. Also, sometimes a tablet pc, in which case I use a stylus of course.

I stick with a mouse, I can work with a touchpad on my laptop for short periods, which is all I use it for on-site. Trackballs I absolutely hate as my hands tend to shake a bit (always have) making them impossible to use.

I used to use a trackball, but it got dirty so fast... Switched to a wireless optical mouse...

Mouse for me. I just picked up the Logitech MX3200 Wireless desktop - great setup. :)

I'd let you borrow mine but I'm having too much fun with it :)

I used a trackball for FPS gaming many years ago. I did get annoyed at how dirty it got, but mostly I was bothered by the thumb cramps and the popping thumb knuckle that persists to this day.

I guess I'm not a gamer or I'm some old fart, because it is still possible to do much of everything with the good old keyboard.

My question was really about general PC usage. Gaming wasn't really my focus...but I brought it up anyway. :unsure:

Do you use a mouse with your keyboard? Most of us older guys do! Although these days I use an Evoluent Vertical Mouse because it is easier on my wrist.
