As far as i know, all ThinkPads still use the TrackPoint(tm). IBM invented it
and it is quite popular. Seems to be a binary function. You love it or you
hate it. I have not met anyone who was in the "don't care" category.
My fairly shiny new T43 has one as does a co-worker's new T60. I don't know
about the new, low-cost 3000 series, but I believe that all other ThinkPads
have a track point as do many Dell and HP systems. Probably other brands, too.
Oddly, the scratch-pad must be disabled to enable the middle button. This has
never made sense to me, but it seems that is the way it is.
