All the options I listed come with some sort of trackball or touchpad, and one of them is certainly remote sized. All of them are also ~$50

Yea,sorry,you are right,you can walk your keyboard around the house,but doing the same thing with wireless trackball,touchpad or mouse is mission impossible because you can loose it same way it happens you loose your remote on the couch sometimes.

Hince why I suggested the built in feature in windows, and a all in one. So you have one piece of hardware that's big enough, I can still lose it but only if I have had one to many and try to hide it in my closet, but functional as two

Is it right to say "I was ironic" or "I was being ironic"?
