Trackballs rule.  My little orbit has saved my wrist.

Yup.  I have two of them.  I have a Wacom Intuos (8x6) and a Wacom 
Graphire (for the notebook). I love the things. For working in photoshop 
or anything that requires fine pointer control they are amazing. Once 
you learn it (it's just like writing, but without looking at the paper) 
it's a great tool.

FWIW - between typing nearly all of the correspondence I have, and using 
a Palm, my handwriting has gone to serious shit.  It's all starting to 
look like graffiti.
