Which new notebook models have trackpoint?

HP Recommended

Looking for a new notebook. Cannot easily tell from the usual descriptions which have a trackpoint pointing device. A list of models or model families would be very helpful.

Thanks: Leon

I am not sure any HP laptops still have a trackpoint. All Lenovo Thinkpads still have them. There is virtually no consumer demand for trackpoints, a huge majority prefers the touchpad. I still use the trackpoint on my Thinkpad, but also use the touchpad.

Please add any machines that I missed. I`m addicted to the trackpoint , they are the greatest thing to happen to the keyboard since keys. Seripously though,  I`m always interested in notebooks that offer this input device.

Thank you very much! I'm currently looking for a new laptop (my ThinkPad X200T has done pretty much for me) and I'm also addicted to the trackpoint 🙂

 

Off: Seems like we're the "virtually no consumer demand" 😉

Realize this is an old thread-  but my son-in-law had a  fairly  new (w/in a year) HP laptop here last night - it had a very usable trackpoint-type device.    Which is great because I thought I'd be married to Lenovo for the rest of my days b/c of the trackpoint. 

 

I can't use anything BUT a trackpoint -  and I can use it for very detailed work -  CAD, Graphic design, etc. just like a mouse.   A trackpad is crazy (IMO- I realize people love them) - requires both hands and you can't touch-type while using it - so it's not for me.  And I don't like to cart a mouse around.   If the trackpoints all went away tomorrow - that's what I'd have to do.. I'd deal with the trackpad while on a plane or somethng,  but use a bluetooth mouse for everything else.

 

So anyway - kudos to HP for including a trackpoint - I think there is considerably more than "virtually no" consumer demand for the device.  And unless someone has actual stats on consumer demand available (doubtful) - assertions like that are nothing more than unsupported hyperbole.    I think many consumers have put up with the lack of a trackpoint simply because it was abandoned by the manufacturer they like - and those consumers didn't want to switch to Lenovo.
