Since the left-part of my hand always went tinteling after using the traditional mouse for too long, I also went for the trackballs. Never want back.

I have 2 sorts. I must say the trackball on the right, where you move the ball with your thumb I find best to use.
When you first buy and try to use them you feel regret, but after 2-3 days of usage you will get used to the trackballs.

That looks and sounds good. Perhaps it's time I also get me one of those. I already have that hand/fingers feeling, so it might be time.

How is that right mouse named? (i.e. manufacturer and model) Also, if you buy it online, where did you buy it? (I looked at Bol.com but only found one wired trackball mouse).

I use this one.

Per @ThatManFromTexas I bought this mouse. Took a few days to get used to the trackball. But once I did would not go back to my PerformanceMX or a regular mouse. The PerformanceMX is very nice mouse although I found it kind of heavy.

This trackball is Logitech M570 and is their latest trackball. Much less stress on the hand because when using stays stationary unlike a normal mouse that you are constantly moving and even picking up.

Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

I'm with you Liquidcci.

I've had the Logiteck Trackball for a year now and its heaven. I'd never consider a mouse again when all you need do is move your thumb a bit to scream across the screen.

Hey @Jura,

you are right, it seems the wired trackball from logitech is not for sale anymore. I bought it 2-3 years ago, 30-35 euro.
Mostly when I want to search for the best price I use one of these sites:
Trackball - Goedkope computer muis kopen op BESLIST.nl
Logitech Wireless Mouse M570 prijzen | Core | Tweakers.net Pricewatch
Goodluck!

One of my worst enemies are my own false assumptions

I would recommend any of the Logitech MX or G mice.

Depending on you wallet, you might choose a different one.

G500
MX518
G400


These are used by gamers, they are reliable and comfotable.

I have never been a huge fan of touchpads because you usually give up fine control. However, the geek in me could not resist windows 8. Which the negative reviews are way overboard imo. It is a rebuild so like with anything new your brain has to adjust. I love windows 7 but windows 8 is much snappier and I don't feel like I have given anything up.

That being said to maximize Windows 8 experience the Logitech T650 touchpad is absolutely excellent. I have fine control and the touch experience is great. I cannot recommend it enough.

It is so good even if I was not using win8 (although Win8 maximizes it's features) I would still use it. I actually bought it thinking I would probably hate it and return it. But it is the best input mouse type device I have ever used. I am quite surprised by it.

The Bat: because that's what you call a flying mouse

We're still checking our sources, but KIBARDIN design doesn't actually seem to be a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises. That hasn't stopped them from whipping up some concept renderings of a computer mouse that's totally superhero worthy. When free of your hand's weight, The Bat mouse floats roughly an inch and a half above its pad using some sort of magnet system. And while I'm sure you could force it to the ground, the weight of your hand won't be enough to get it there.

The main purpose of The Bat isn't awesome comic book references: it was designed to prevent and treat carpal tunnel syndrome — something that many avid computer users suffer from. You see, carpal tunnel syndrome comes from pressure on the median nerve — the nerve in the wrist that supplies feeling and movement to parts of the hand. By lifting that nerve off of the desk, designer Vadim Kibardin hopes to alleviate the numbness and muscle damage that carpal tunnel can create. If only the rest of the world's remedies came in awesome, floating packages.
