Microsoft optical trackball mouse replacement?

  Brumas 23:46 29 Jan 2006

My trusty old Microsoft optical trackball mouse has finally given up the ghost and, as it has been discontinued, am at a loss as to what can replace it.

I was so used to be able to go back and forward using the outside left and right buttons as well as using the normal right and left click buttons ; plus I assigned the central scrolling wheel to 'double click' which was exceedingly handy.

Any personal recommendations/favourites would be helpful.

Thanks in advance.

I have an MS optical Trackball Intellinmouse purchased only recently from PCW - I amsure they are still around- have you tried the usual suspects
E-Buyer/Dabs and all those?

I did not realise they were still available - I hadn't tried anywhere prior to posting this.

Also, does anyone know of a similar mouse they could recommend?

I have bought a Logitech Cordless Trackman Optical Mouse which seems to do the trick. Thanks for the response.
