Touchpad physical buttons

2015-07-07, 18:28 PM

I'm planning on buying a new laptop, but for productivity reasons, I need one with dedicated physical touchpad buttons.

 

Are there any new Lenovo Thinkpads planned with physical buttons?

If you mean the buttons below the touchpad rather than the TrackPoints buttons above the touchpad, then I don't believe there will be any.

Yes, physical buttons below the touchpad.
A friend of mine told me that they would came back.

The TrackPoint buttons have returned, but it doesn't seem like there's as much support for the touchpad buttons.

From what I see and read, there is a lot of support for those touchpad buttons, although maybe less than trackpoint buttons.
