They’ve copied the TrackPoint from Lenovo. I don’t know if that’s new. I really like the keyboard of my thinkpad. Wouldn’t change it for anything. Well maybe for an open source alternative that’s very close to it in specs and design. But we are far from being there.

I have an older HP laptop with a similar trackpoint style pointer. They are not as good as the real TrackPoints, because they lack the middle button in the buttons at the top of the track pad, so there’s no way to scroll while using that pointer. It doesn’t bother me because I am much more used to using a track pad anyway, but it’s definitely not interchangeable.

I still wouldn’t purchase an HP laptop, but this is a positive development. Though you are better checking out System76 laptops.

Didn’t Lenovo have this for years?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
