    I probably didn't give it enough time for adapting but tried a trackball for a day and didn't get to grips with it. The mouse is much more familiar although you do end up retraining different muscles to do mouse clicks which too a few days to feel normal. There's a thousand Chinese branded versions of that mouse design on aliexpress and US amazon for cheap if you're interested in trying one.

    Hard to imagine going back to a mouse and all the associated arm movement....

    I honestly don't mind the Macbook touchpad either ... would prefer and probably should spend some consumption money on getting a new Logitech trackball thingy.

    I've always been using gaming mouse, usually comfier and you can set shortcuts on the additional buttons which makes me save a lot of time. I have the logitech 402. Before that I had a Razer but it broke down after a year. And before that a wireless Microsoft one that last me for years. I would say put the price in a mouse, if you buy cheap ones they tend to break very quickly and are mostly not comfortable to use.

    I use the Logitech T620.
    It's discontinued, so I have three - maybe a lifetime supply!

    I think it's more a matter of careful choice of brand, than a $ figure.

    I've had cheap Logitechs last multiple years of regular use, I've had 2 Roccats over ~8 years (first one stopped working within the 2 year warrant, the replacement has been going ever since).

    Razer stuff costs a lot, but they have a pretty bad rep among people who obsess about peripherals.
