Lenovo announced the ThinkPad TrackPoint Keyboard II ahead of CES. The wireless keyboard delivers the same look and feel of the keyboards from Lenovo's ThinkPad line of laptops, allowing people to extend the feel of their laptop to a desktop setup. The ThinkPad TrackPoint Keyboard II is expected to launch in May 2020 and costs $100.

The keyboard connects with either 2.4Ghz wireless or Bluetooth 5, so it should work with a wide range of devices. It charges through USB-C and gets up to two months of battery life on a single charge, according to Lenovo. The keyboard can connect up to two devices to make switching between devices easier. It works with both Windows and Android devices.

Lenovo's laptop keyboards are unique and loved by many. In his review of the Lenovo X1 Carbon (2018), our executive editor Daniel Rubino said the device had a perfect keyboard. Reviews of other ThinkPad devices echo similar sentiments. If the ThinkPad TrackPoint Keyboard II sticks with the same formula, it should receive similar praise.
