Asus Eee PC 901 and 1000 series netbooks have nice wide, multi-touch trackpads with two distinct buttons. But if you’re not a fan of multitouch gestures or touchpads in general, one ambitious hacker has shown that there is another way. If you’re willing to void your warranty and poke holes in your netbook’s chassis, you can add a trackball.
In this case, the trackball is actually an Apple Mighty Mouse that’s been dissected, flipped upside down, and slotted into the netbook case. I’m always amazed at how much room there is to work with in these tiny computers.
You can see modified Eee PC 901 with a trackball in action after the break.
