Track Pad vs. Track Ball

I downloaded Blender onto my laptop. I do alot of my work there. However, I found out by going through the settings and the online tutorial and I see no mention of the Track Pad as some Laptops have, such as mine. Is there another way to do a rotation than with a track ball? Or maybe a track ball is in order here?

Thanks, Graywolf

The types of rotation have nothing to do with the device you’re using for input, they’re just different ways of calculating user input and are mostly personal preference.
