Thinkpad P50 Trackpoint noise

Hello
 
I recieved my P50 today and wonder if any other P50-owners experience the same thing as I. The three buttons below the keyboard (the trackpoint mouse-buttons) and the spacebar sounds like knocking a pen on a table. It is noticeable louder than earlier thinkpads. Most of the keyboard is very quiet, its just the high noise from the spacebar and trackpoint-buttons that is rather loud.
 
How does your keyboard and trackpoint sound?

I haven't noticed anything strange with mine. It sounds like every other trackpad. Maybe you should make a video and share it with us on youtube to describe what you mean.

Re: Thinkpad P50 Trackpoint noise

I notice that you are focusing on the mousebuttons for the touchpoint (above the touchpad) rather than the touchpad mouse buttons. From experience I find these video exaggerate the noise a litle bit. With that in mind, I have to say that my P50 sounds pretty similar, but not quite as loud as the video. It appears normal from my perspective. Probably different models of microswitches underneath or something
