T480s loud trackpoint buttons

I just recieved my T480s and I noticed that the left trackpoint button on top of the trackpad is significantly louder than the other buttons. It is making a high pitched clicking sound that is very loud and annoying. Is this a defect or is there any fix for this? Should exchange it for another T480s?

Re: T480s loud trackpoint buttons

Sounds defective to me.

I have a T480 and all buttons are quiet and equal in sound level.


They may want to swap your keyboard assembly out as a repair.

If the machine is brand new and you have nothing "invested" in it ...

I might ask for a new replacement unit.


If on the other hand you have a bunch of time invested loading s/w and so on...

You might prefer the keyboard swap.
