Is there a desktop keyboard with a scroll ball? [closed]

Is there a decent desktop keyboard that has a mouse scroll ball in it? I find it extremely annoying moving from the keyboard to the mouse and back and my current mouse is giving me RSI.

"It's unclear whether you want that keyboard you posted a picture of, but if you do, Lenovo actually does still sell a version of it:

The tradeoff is that it does have the short-travel ThinkPad notebook style keys as opposed to full desktop keyboard style keys, so it depends on whether you like that feel or not. I personally prefer full travel ""clicky"" keys, so I would agree with Kyle's answer that the Unicomp products are probably the best option in that case. (Their EnduraPro is the closest thing I've found to the ThinkPad model with ""real"" keys.)"

"AutoHotKey - Map something like Win-J to the scroll action.

Edit: Umm n/m, try that wierd chinese key and J."
