Can anyone out there recommend a reasonably priced keyboard with touch pad, for a friend who is new to computing and cannot get to grips with a mouse.

Not a lot of choice click here has your friend tried a trackball ?

click here seems to be the only one I can find.

I hate mice too and use trackballs. Has your friend looked at one of these?

oops I should have refreshed before posting. Sorry to repeat Belatucadrus comment.

Make sure your friend tries one out first [Touch pad] as they can be more difficult than a mouse at times and a lot of people who have laptops tend to connect a rodent when they are doing a lot of work.

Many thanks, a trackball may well be a better solution and they seem to be more available than touch pads-Cheers
