I like the left one. The simply uniform look is IMHO better.

Betreff: Feedback Request: ThinkPad TouchPad Buttons

I prefer the classical red striped TrackPoint buttons. A very nice visual connection with the TrackPoint and a design element that was present with the first ThinkPad already. Black and red creates a wonderful contrast. The  all black design looks cleaner, but also more boring.

 

Also, Lenovo already had all black TrackPoint buttons once with the T60 and subsequent models - it was changed back a few generations later.

I think the red line is more Iconic "lenovo" but if there is no functional difference I think you should just have that be an option when people order their laptop. Just like if they want a different cpu, they can choose a different color, especially on the higher end when people pay this much for a top tier product they should have the choice.

Prefer having the stripe.  To me at least it looks better.

Re: Feedback Request: ThinkPad TouchPad Buttons

I prefer the right photo with the red stripe but I could live with the all-black design. 

 

However that's a trivial preference compared to my preferencerequirement for a TrackPoint and buttons. Take that away and you lose a 20something year long customer.

I agree.  Must have trackpoint.

Both cool - but it is the lack of sensitivity (and sensitivity settings) in Trackpoint since X1 that is the issue - I am afraid Lenovo will lose out clients here.
