Tracker Ball. This device is very similar to a mouse itself in terms of the functions that it performs but there is a difference in the physical appearance. An advantage of the tracker ball is that a finger or the palm of the hand is used to roll the ball in any direction so there is an ease of use in comparison to the mouse where the entire arm has to be used. There are also buttons on the tracker ball which work in the same way as a mouse. An advantage that the trackerball has over the mouse is that it can be used on any surface because the ball is on top of the mouse whereas with a normal mouse an uneven surface may hinder its performance and speed.
There are a couple of disadvantages of using a tracker ball. The disadvantages are both physical limitations and control limitations.
Some of the disadvantages of a track as opposed to a laser is that trackballs get stuck and the wheels inside can get jammed
the cursor lags more than with optical mouses
The laser of the optical mouse may bounce off certain colors and shapes on a mouse pad.There are no disadvantages to a optical mouse. The optical mouse just works better and smoother than the ball mouse, and you never have to worry about the ball getting dirty or hanging. I would suggest getting an optical mouse and throwing the ball mouse away.
Advantages are: its better than a mouse with a ball because the mouse with a ball requires a course surface to spin the ball. Disadvantage: is that if its for a game, you can over swing it and have a hard time hitting whatever your shooting at for instance, and they can be pretty annoying to use.
advantages and disadvantages of ring mouse
what is roller ball mouse
if your mouse have a litlle ball in it you have to take the ball andd clean the mouse but if the mouse have a lassser i dont know

For this you definitly need the opinion of someone who has to sufffer the ball mouse at least once a week. ie: School pupils. I have two IT lessons a fortnight, and at our school you have a choice between overly chunky optical mice or cheap, way too light ball mice. I end up tolerating the ball mice as I am very picky about my mice. I, personally like mice with a bit of weight on them, but the thick plastic outer of the school's optical mice is ridiculous. Generally, schools don't provide pupils with mousemats on the theory that they will be nicked/tooexpensive, so the only way to get the ball mice to operate in a friendly manner is to clean it before use, or use your science book as a substitute mousemat. The moral of this long-winded story is:
break the mouse on the outside
A track ball mouse is a mouse that uses an internal ball to track movement, instead of a laser. These have been outdated by optical mice.
Generally an optical mouse provides much better function than an older ball design mouse. The lack of an internal ball to move the mouse reduces the need for cleaning and build up do to the ball itself wearing down.
That's called a trackball. The device stays in place and you move the ball (usually) with your thumb, rather than moving a mouse which in turn moves the ball inside (or with the newer optical mouse, electronically senses the mouse motion).
Well the mouse sends the movements of it to the computer. A mouse with a mouse-ball has rollers inside of it that move with the ball and from there can operate similar to a keyboard. An optical or 'laser' mouse is much more advanced.
