HTPC System input opinions?

Specs: opensuse, generic
I am wondering how others input to a htpc computer. I tend to run media center but also browser.

Choices seem to be touchpads

Remotes for media center.

Keyboards with touchpads / trackballs or just keyboard and mouse/trackball.

Trackballs.

Mini keyboards.

Pen type of mice.

Others?

Anyone love or hate one or the other?

Thanks.

I thank you for the suggestion. Spent some time there but most people there are not US and the products don't relate or are very old stuff.

I think I will just either get a dedicated wireless keyboard&trackball or move up to a cheap android tablet and just us it for remote. Seems odd a cheap tablet could be way more powerful than the $400 universal remotes.

The apple magic tablet would be the best I think if dumb apple made drivers for windows. Sheeze.

I really like the HP digitizer too but it can't be used without buying expensive software.
