When you use a laptop, what is your preferred mouse option?
The exact same mouse or trackball I'd use with my desktop. Carrying the extra? So worth it.

A travel mouse or trackball. It's smaller but it works.

My usual pen and graphics pad. I can't use anything else.

The built-in trackpad. Convenient, easy--why bother with more stuff?

That tiny eraser-shaped nubbin in the middle of the keys. I love those things.

Something else... The built-in trackpad. Not at al convenient, but I don't want to bother with more stuff. With the laptop on my lap a mouse is also not very convenient.

I actually use a laptop as my primary machine, and I switch between a full-sized mouse when I'm at home and a trackball that is always with me.

I consider trackball a good solution since it doesn't require certain surface to work properly.
