My housemate's aggressively left handed, and has been struggling with RSI and wrist pain this summer (working from home has its downsides) so we've been trying a bunch of different mice/trackballs and stuff. Found this one, which is a bit uncommon and wanted to point it out:

It seems fairly comfortable. Works fine, construction quality is decent*. Aesthetics are a little flashy but not gamer-chic. The buttons are automatically reversed (the "left" mouse button is the one on the right, under your index finger.) Powered by a single AA.

The first one we ordered was missing the USB dongle, so QA might be... you know.

So if you're a lefty, have some twinges in your mousing arm, and aren't a fan of the ambidextrous designs (my housemate tried my Kensington Slimblade for a while and hated it, which I don't understand AT ALL) this might be worth a shot.

*It's not OMGSOLID like the big Kensington Expert Mouse or Slimblades I have, but it was less than half the price, so I'm grading on a curve. But it's not bad - on par with the lower-end Logitech stuff or the Kensington Orbit.

Kensington trackballs are symmetric, should work for everybody, but yeah, they can be expensive

Or an apple trackpad

That mouse/trackball is crazy, not just the combination, but using the trackball with your thumb?
