Which one is best for UI Designers? Trackpad & Mouse & Touchpad?

    For myself and my work style - I’m very heavily reliant on the keyboard and shortcuts, thus I find the keyboard is the most essential peripheral accessory.

    I use the Microsoft Sculpt Keyboard: https://www.microsoft.com/accessories/en-us/products/keyboards/sculpt-ergonomic-desktop/l5v-00001

    In fact, in Sketch I don’t have any icons exposed at all and execute most things through Sketch Runner.

    I DO use both the Magic Mouse and Trackpad, which I find as critical.

    In the design process (Sketch), the MM and TP are mostly for zooming and selection and the gestures are critical to my workflow.

    Their lack of ergonomics I don’t find that troubling TBH - but, Apple keyboards...

    That’s another story.
