I have used the Logitech Optical trackball before without problems, although it was not the cordless model. The mice work ok, so should the trackball.
One thing I am not sure about though. You may not like the trackball for drawing and such. It is kinda cumbersome to use for such things in my experience. The mouse works better for drawing and of course, the tablet the best, if you can afford one.
