The BTC 9019 has two buttons to the right of the joystick labeled "4" and "5" that serve as scroll-up and scroll-down.  I can typically find the left & right mouse buttons with my left thumb when holding the handles without having to look.  And, yes, pushing straight down on the joystick doubles as a left-click.

So far the http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16823110001 
with the joystick and the

touch pad look like the winners for me.

I like the idea of touch pads, but i find that when moving across the
screen i have to return my finger back to side of the pad i started at.
Back and forth, back and forth.

How well does the joystick work as far as ergonomics?  Can you scroll
easily? Are the left/right buttons in a good place?  Do you press down on
the joystick to click?

As far as the touch pad goes, i have kind of an odd problem.  I wear poet
shirts exclusively and they have loose sleeves. Thus my sleeve drags along
the pad if i move my arm. I'd bet people in the 1600s had the same problem
with their laptops.

My HTPC is also my main work computer so this keyboard will be my main
keyboard as well. Note that i use the numeric keypad rarely.

Thank you.
