My mouse at work is silent - it's a Microsoft one so I'll post the model number when I'm there.

...do you mean no audible click, then? I can't imagine what other noises a mouse makes.

If you need it to not click, you might be better off with a Bamboo Touch, which you can operate with a finger.

How about a USB touchpad?

OK, sorry, my work mouse isn't as totally silent as I'd imagined. Its click is pretty quiet, and it's unnoticeable under the a/c noise. Anyway, it's a Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical, P/N X08-70400.

n'thing a wacom tablet. I have a Bamboo pen version. No noise, took care of my RSI as well. Downfall is if you have any shakiness in the hands. And it's not good for PC games, I just use a regular clicky mouse for that.
