I'll usually hook up a real mouse (or trackball, and a nice big keyboard is space is available or if there's a KVM switch around), otherwise, touchpad.

Touchpad

only when I need the mouse... keyboard shortcuts rule!!! Go WinKey!!!

If I'm going to do any image editing or gaming, then I'll hook up my mouse.

Even though I have a laptop with a TrackPoint, I can't stand it... My other one has a TouchPad and its soooooooo much better... But sometimes, I hook up a real mouse! :)

well I've dell inspiron 8200 not the latest model
and it has trackball and touchpad.

I use the ball often when I don't use my actual mouse. but the reason why I don't use my touchpad is bc its too slow bc i did not install the driver for it simply bc the MS mouse driver dominates over the touchpad drivers :D
