No excuse why not have a mouse. Things like that and a dual monitor are must have items even if I have to buy my own.

You'll get much faster if you learn how to use your trackpad. Best advice I was given was to unplug my mouse and pop off that F1 key. It's useless

No accessories! So much more efficient!

Depends on my mood. If I'm feeling ambitious - trackpad and shortcuts, when I'm over it - mouse slow and steady

We get wireless mice. I like them but some people prefer the compactness of a trackpad but I hate it.

Mouse all the way.

Bluetooth mouse, free on Amazon by using my Well Being Rewards....thanks PwC

Trackpad are for the lazies. How the hell do u do audit work with a track pad

^I've seen people who know shortcuts and stuff go really fast using keyboard and trackpad...but I sure can't do it.

I bought my own wireless mouse for $19 @ Walmart and it is pretty fantastic.

I'll learn the shortcut but forget it by the next day

Was given a crappy wired mouse from firm, but eventually got a wireless one from Amazon and expensed. A Logitech mouse that comes in multiple colors; cute and cheap. If expense was rejected, I would have still paid for myself. So much easier than using trackpad, though I am pretty good at trackpad still.
