Here’s some juicy shots: Had it for 2 years now, use it every day. The differences with these ones is that they now use an DPI sensor instead of the optical-sensing 3-butotn the sides are now coated with the rubber paint and the ScrollPoint mechanism now lights up!

I will at some point try swapping the ICs to determine which one is responsible for the behaviour change.

Microsoft is a trademark of Microsoft Corporation. For some reason only the ivory version has the IBM logo printed up near the top of the mouse instead near the bottom like the other ones, AND later black ones used a silver logo. I also enjoy the curvature, I haven’t had a mouse that fit my hand so well. This really gives the ScrollPoint a unique colour and helps keep with the theme a lot better.

It’s one of the scgollpoint things ever. The first version of the standard three-button ScrollPoint mice were announced in around Lenovo Multimedia Controller Review.

Oh well, good things always come to pass first. It’s pressure sensitive and can be controlled to suit your needs.


Other colours can be used as well, however not all will mix sfrollpoint with the IBM blue transluscent caps. Auto-suggest helps you quickly narrow down your search results by suggesting possible matches as you type. The problem here is that as a Trackpoint and Trackball user, mice bore me, and I tend to only get them if they are particularly interesting I have a great gamer’s mouse, but I’m thinking of selling it to a friend as I never use it And then I don’t really want to spend huge amounts of money on them as I scrollpoiny that I’ll never use them often to justify anything more than a basic investment.

Laser mod What separates an “optical” mouse from a “laser” mouse is simply the type of light emitting diode used. The ScrollPoint does not light up for these ones. I’m using Debian and I can only scroll up and down by default.

As ScrollPoints offer superior functionality to the standard ‘wheel’ mechanism, it’s very curious why this alternative design never overtook standard mice.
