    Touchpad or trackpad? Do you design comfortable with trackpad? Whats your hand position? How do you handle? I really want to use trackpad, i don't want to use extra hardware but i am giving up when my wrist hurts.

      Trackpad :) I find touchpad time wasting, i'd rather have a mouse if my hand will leave the keyboard anyway. I guess I got used to it in time because the old magic mouse was disconnecting easily and I was getting frustrated. Now, sometimes I even forget about the mouse even if I have it next to my computer. Wrist hurt is a possible outcome obviously, but I'm quite comfortable, could be related to desk/chair height as well. The desk is 5-10 cm higher than my chair and I usually place my macbook on the edge of the desk with a small gap that I can put my wrist in a slightly diagonal way.

      Actually I even played Counter-Strike once with the trackpad when I forgot to take my mouse with me, wasn't my best game but nothing is impossible :D
