Kensington Mice, Trackballs and Touchpads
Kensington mice, trackballs and touchpads are an excellent addition to any computer setup. Computer mice, trackballs and touchpads are devices that enable the cursor on the computer screen to move, to click on things and to scroll up, down and across pages. Kensington wired USB, wired and wireless mice options are available.Mice
Computer mice are either wireless with a USB broadcaster or they are wired and plug into a computer’s USB port. Some wired mice have retractable cables. Most modern mice are optical mice and use a small infrared laser to track the mouse’s motion. Kensington mice are available in a variety of colours including black, white, red and blue.Trackballs
Kensington trackballs are an alternative to mice, while still featuring similar mechanics in their design. Trackballs are immobile pads with a large central ball and several click buttons in front of it. Instead of moving a mouse, on screen motion is accomplished by rolling the ball. This has several benefits. The first is precision, with trackballs being commonly used in graphic design software as a result. Another benefit is that trackballs have no limit to effective range unlike a mouse, which can move too far and run out of deskspace. Finally, as trackballs generally have supportive wrist pads and require no major hand movements, they are often more ergonomic than mice.Touchpads
Kensington touchpads provide similar functionality to trackballs, but replace the large central rotating ball with a touchscreen. While maintaining the benefits of trackballs in regards to precision, scrolling range and ergonomics, the touchpads also have a less obtrusive profile. Their flat, sleek design frees up desk space and is perfect for those users who like to keep a clean and open desk.Similar Items
