[svlug] Anyone using a Keyboard + integral trackball?

I almost never use the numeric keypad on keyboards, and the thought
occurs to me that the real estate might work better if there were
a trackball there.  (Touchpads never seem to be precise enough for
text cut/paste in xterm, unless you use a BIG font).

I found something that looked like what I'd want under
but in general, such beasts seem to be MILSPEC construction,
with prices starting ca. $160.

Is something similar available at lower cost?  A smooth, quiet
keyboard is mandatory.  Better yet, are there any dealers for
such equipment in the area where I can go see things first hand?
