Based on what I've seen with Apple's mighty mouse, since the ball is so small, I suspect that you would not have enough control for it to really work well. Even the ball on my PowerBook 145 back in the day was just too small to work reliably at fine levels of precision. I can't imagine trying to use something a fraction that size.
The Kensington device in question seems designed more as a mouse that you could occasionally use as a trackball in a pinch if you're on an airplane with your laptop and don't have room to use the mouse for a few hours. I think even in those cases, I'd choose the built-in trackpad, though. For those of us who use a trackball continuously, something tells me that a product designed as a "travel trackball" would not be a very satisfying experience.
I guess it might be better than nothing, but I'm not about to spend $85 on something that at best might just barely serve its intended purpose.

Look, I owned one of the RF wireless version years ago...used it for a few weeks and then schlepped it on eBay. The reception was terrible at home and what was the point of using it when traveling with my laptop...if I still have to plug something into the USB port, it might as well be connected directly to the mouse. Also, since it didn't have a way to disable the unit while transporting it in my bag, it would frequently run down the battery because movement would wake the unit up (removing the battery meant having to re-pair the device and receiver which could be a PITA.) Unfortunately we have no market leverage here because Logitech KNOWS they have the most ergonomic design...there is NO other option for me.
