    Hey all my buddies at MacRumors!!!!

    I have a question....
    I have been using the magic mouse for about a year now on my new iMac..... I was wondering if there were any good Trackballs that double as a regular mouse for mac...

    I like trackballs, but they would get annoying while playing some games... any ideas....


    Any advice/ideas are greatly appreciated in advance!!! :)

    Why would you want a trackball? I doubt they even make them nowadays. Best to go with a 3.5g laser mouse.

    you should be able to buy any trackball you find , a trackball is nothing else as a mouse upside down and instead of moving the mouse you move the ball, so all should work with osx

    just google for pictures of trackball mouse and you will get flooded with trackballs, they are only not that popular because they cost lots more then a normal mouse the really good ones cost even more as a magic trackpad +magic mouse together

    Several things. More accurate, higher polling rate, lower response time, generally higher DPI. trackballs suck IMO, especially for games.

    How about Apple's Mighty Mouse? thats an optical mouse with a small trackball ontop.
