Lenovo's keyboard nub, or TrackPoint, yields a vegemite-like response from people, meaning they either love it or hate it. If you're a fan of the TrackPoint nub, you can get it on the new ThinkPad TrackPoint Keyboard II. Lenovo launched the wireless keyboard this week, and it's avaialble on Lenovo's website now for $100.
The TrackPoint first appeared on keyboards at a time when laptop trackpads weren't anywhere near as good as they are now. Trackpads have improved so much that many consider the nub unnecessary, but Lenovo's keyboards have a passionate following. In addition to the TrackPoint nub, the ThinkPad TrackPoint Keyboard II has dish-shaped keys and three mouse buttons on the bottom of the keyboard.
The keyboard connects with either Bluetooth 5.0 or a 2.4GHz wireless Nano USB dongle that can connect to two devices. The keyboard has a physical switch that swaps it between Windows and Android modes.
The keyboard charges through a USB-C port, and Lenovo claims that the ThinkPad TrackPoint Keyboard II gets up to two months of battery life.
This keyboard features the infamous TrackPoint nub and connects to your devices with Bluetooth or an included dongle.
