    Which one is better for your wrist? I'm too young to have any carpel tunnel issues, but it's something I wish to prevent in the future.

    I've been using a trackpad for over a year now and just got myself a mouse. I find the mouse a bit less comfortable to use but this may just be an adjustment thing. Which one is better for the wrist?

    well when i type long term or do mouse stuff long term my wrists tend to get sore from the line impressions so i hooked up my G5 logitech gaming mouse (which is really comfortable!) to it when im on my desk.

    Mice make things a bit easier when your on the desk so i suggest using a mice when at home. just find a comfortable one, go to the store and try them out if you feel like buying a new one. and dont worry about the 'tunnel' thing as long as your hand doesnt like sink on the palm rest all the way in which you get line impressions then thats when your keeping the blood flow away
