I know some netbook users shun USB peripherals like a mouse or trackball because their goal is to pack as light as possible. But I personally find I’m far more productive with a USB travel mouse than when left alone with a keyboard and touchpad. But some people prefer a trackball to a mouse. It’s supposed to be better for you ergonomically, and I have several friends with carpal tunnel that swear by trackballs. But who wants to lug around a huge USB trackball with your tiny netbook?
That’s where the Evergreen USB Mini Trackball comes in. This little guy measures just 30mm x 30mm x 20mmm and weighs just 22 grams. That’s less than one ounce, and about 1.2″ square.
So yeah, it’s tiny. I just can’t imagine it’s easy to use at all.
The Evergreen USB Mini Trackball sells for 1,999 yen in Japan, which is about $20 US.
