I have an Alps Glidepoint. I think it was about $60. I have two
cautions--one is that I would definitely put it on something to bring
it up to keyboard height. The second one is that because the surface
of the glidepoint is small, which means it deals with a
correspondingly small area of the screen, it may not work well enough
for graphics editing. Someone else who has more experience with
graphics and touchpads should probably comment. For general purpose
editing, however, I adore it. I occasionally have to use a mouse, and
I find it awkward and painful.

It took me three days to get used to the touchpad, and all my
wrist/arm/shoulder pain disappeared within a week. I really recommend
the touchpad and lifting weights.:)

First the job, then the money, then the fish. That's how it works.
