Best trackpads/touchpads for PC?

Looking to try a touchpad on Windows 10, since I've been trying a standing desk setup lately. Due to some wrist issues, and in general mousing for me at various heights just feels less comfortable while standing.

Any good ones? I pretty much just googled it and looked on amazon, might try a Jelly Comb one. Also if there are other ideas for mouse alternatives, that's interesting to discuss too. Though vertical mice and trackballs aren't for me I think.


In general touchpads for PC seem like more of a niche thing than I would have thought.

Are you OK with trackpoint? Lenovo has it.

There used to be more choice, but all the mainstream ones from Logitech, Dell, HP, etc. seem to be EOL.

I'd just try the jelly Comb one, it seems nice enough.

Thanks for the replies, in the month since I posted I bought a couple, and also recently have switched back to sitting and mousing. Thanks though.


I got the Perixx Peripad-501 touchpad, a small 20 dollar one on amazon. It's not bad, but ultimately I found it took so much movement to properly use, that it wasn't much easier on the wrist. I also got one of those logitech wireless keyboards with a touchpad on the side, useful for when using the TV as second monitor.
