Give your Wrist a Break!

Administrators in my district have replaced their desktop computers with laptops. The mobility is wonderful, but when I’m working in my office or at home, I find the touch pad difficult to use for long periods of time because my wrist begins to ache. What can I do?

Many laptop users complain about the built in pointing devices. An easy, inexpensive solution under the circumstances you describe is to use a laptop mini-mouse in the office and at home. These small, comfortable-to-use devices come in a variety of styles and may be corded or wireless. Prices for laptop mini-mice begin at under $10. They may be purchased online or in most stores that have an electronics department.
