I have two: a Logitech Marble Mouse on my main computer and a Logitech TrackMan
Wheel on my second computer. The latter is good for office work, browsing etc.
because of the scrollwheel, but the ball is a bit harder to use because you
can't really use but your thumb. The Marble Mouse is wonderful: I'll never, ever
want to use an ordinary mouse after the experience with it... It's very good for
almost anything, and the best gaming mouse I've ever tried: I just *can't* play
Q3A, UT etc. without it!
