    Logitech M570 cordless Trackballs for me. I haven't used a mouse on my PC in years.

    Same here i love this M570 Trackball, had it for years too, i hate the idea of dragging a mouse on a pad, this trackball takes getting used to, but when you do it's so much better.

    Since unifying have Logitech K800 Keyboard which is also very good, great battery life.

    K350 keyboard here. It's Unifying too, I unlinked it to the dongle it came with and linked it to the Unifying dongle that came with my M570. Then I gave the mouse that came with the keyboard and it's Unifying receiver to my Dad. I have two M570's. I use one on my desktop PC and have another in my laptop travel bag for use with my laptop.

    That's the ergonomic style keyboard, like old Microsoft wave one, big keyboard. Like Logitech K800 because of illuminated feature plus smooth key strokes. Yeah M570 easy to clean too. Others use my PC hard for them get use to it right away.

    Kensington Orbit Wireless Trackball, and before that a Logitech trackball.

    When I was working I quickly started getting wrist pain with a mouse, so the techie guys got me a trackball and I've used them ever since.

    I always seem to run out of space if I have to move a mouse around.

    And I dread the day when I might have to replace my trusty old Nokia phone with one of the modern ones where you have to swipe everything. Just can't get the hang of swiping.

    MS touch mouse here. I don't think it has middle-click (at least not that I've found), so it is a pain for very quick scrolling, but has kinda been a fun mouse, especially when people ask me what it is. It looks sleek, but the battery life is killer. I purchased rechargeable batteries specifically for it, since it doesn't have power-saving mode built in, and I think it is dumb to have to turn a mouse on or off.

    Took me a bit to get used to. I don't think I'd buy it again, but it is nonetheless enjoyable to use.

    Logitech M705 with Logitech K360, I have it for 4 years already, great for working and gaming on a laptop.

    You should get a magnetic bracelet then, I could not handle my mouse without one, 12 hours straight.

    I have not used a pad for years, a laser mouse does not need any, it works pretty much on any surface.

    I used to be strictly a Microsoft Mouse guy, and I still think they're fine, but for the past few years I've been using a Razer Imperator (love it) and I just bought a wireless Logitech M310 to use with my Mac mini and my laptop. Cheap and works great.
