I dropped my Logitech Optical Trackman on the floor one time too many today (sigh) and it's gone to trackball heaven. The only replacement I could find that works is an an OLD wired mouse with a little rubber ball in it - absolutely horrible! So I apologize for my less than original question, but I am effectively without mouse, and trying to do a search of prior posts was . . . uhhh . . . what's the polite word? Frustrating. So, if you wouldn't mind repeating the advice you've already given, I'd appreciate it. Here are my preferences/requirements/idiosyncrasies: First, I never sit at a desk, so can't use any kind of mouse that requires a flat smooth surface. It's going to have to work wherever I am sitting. Cordless is handy, but not essential. Oh, and weight is probably a consideration, since I'd be moving it around a lot. Programmable buttons - never use 'em, don't care about 'em. I spend hours on my computer every day - with heavy mouse use, so ergonomics are key. That's why I'm not inclined to replace the Trackman - it was a bit large for my hand and I could never really relax while using it. Ergonomics is the reason I'm thinking of going with a trackpad or Bamboo tablet instead of another rollerball mouse - it's not for the graphic capabilities. My work is 100% text editing - moving blocks of text from here to there. Being able to draw would just be a fun bonus - but not one I'd want to spend big bucks on. Finally, even though the Magic Trackpad is supposed to be pretty cool, I'm running Leopard and NOT Lion . . . so I'm not sure how much I'd be able to take advantage of all the features. Also, I've read that because there's no place to rest your hand, using the trackpad for long periods of time can be tiring. Since the Bamboo has a frame (I believe), perhaps this problem is solved? But I have no idea how well the Bamboo functions in place of a mouse . . . Again, apologies for boring you with the same old-same old question . . . but any insights or suggestions would be much appreciated!
