Hi there...

At work I use an IBM T40, and I love the trackpoint which I greatly prefer
over using a touchpad.

Now I'm looking into buying a laptop for private use. Most probably it won't
be an IBM, due to the graphiccard they use and some other reasons.

I would like to know which other brands and laptops that have trackpoints
also ?
(Or what the different makes may call it).

Thanks in anticipation

I think you can still get a trackpoint on a couple of Toshiba models, but
from my experience you're trading off a lot in terms of reliability. Those
I know with IBMs seem to never have any issues, while my own and others I
know with Toshibas... great for the first year or so, but make sure you
purchase the extended warranty.

Many Dell laptops have trackpoint and touchpad. My Latitude D600
certainly does...

I've found what we should buy instead of Thinkpads for our trackpoint obsession.

Imagine if you had that you could plug into any computer and just take over with your super productivity USB Thinkpad keyboard. It's the Thinkpad minus the thinkpad lol I'm sold on it. I realize the keyboard is why I buy the thinkpad.. I want some of those sexy new laptops that been comin out (with lots of extra USB just cause). Thinkpads aren't cheap (i have 2 usb...) I keep buying them used and having mega problems.

if you're trying to say i replied to an old thread, i knew that. i wanted to add relevant information to this page for other google stumblers like me, and especially Jens since there isn't alot of great information on this topic and definitely nothing that leads you to an awesome product like that
