It seems odd to go from using a mouse to a flat surface now that everything is starting to have touchscreens. That’s probably why we buy peripherals that allow us to have external control instead of tapping and swiping. Some people prefer the latter though, and wish they didn’t have to use a mouse.
For those of you out there that find a mouse to be unnecessary clutter, you will likely enjoy the USB Numeric Touch Pad Mouse. It contains the numeric pad on the right side of your keyboard, and can switch to a mouse at a moments notice. There are also shortcut buttons such as copy, paste, cut, scrolling, and zooming. It costs $62, so be prepared to wring out your wallet for something you already have.
