Works in XP, Sort of Works in Windows 7

 

Wonderful product, no longer supported by Kensington for Windows 7 (boo!!!). It was the best thing I ever ran across to avoid carpal tunnel issues. There are workarounds and third-party products that make most of its functions useable in Windows 7,...

Quality construction and ergonomic design reduces risk of carpal tunnel for heavy-duty users, versatile button layout (with chording and macros), great driver (Windows XP), smooth and easy trackball control

No longer supported by Kensington in Windows 7, KMW driver in XP didn't always play nice with other drivers, pricey, wireless version not as reliable as the USB edition

Product Specifications

Turbo Mouse Pro is the premier trackball for Mac users - six DirectLaunch buttons provide fingertip access to your favorite Web sites or applications. To set a DirectLaunch button to a Web site simply press and hold - it's that easy. Four programmable mouse buttons combined with the enclosed MouseWorks software let you handle repetitive tasks with a single click. Stainless steel bearings and large ball give you precise tracking and maximum durability, and an integrated scroll wheel moves you quickly through long documents of Web pages.
