Heads up to potential buyers. The X300 trackpoint and touchpad are not fully functional when used with Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, MS Access, Remote Desktop, and other mainstream applications. This is true for both XP and Windows OS. The built-in pointing devices operate like a mouse without a wheel - you can point and click, but you cannot scroll. This has been a known problem since June of 2008, and has been brought to the attention of this forum numerous times without resulting in any known action by Lenovo.

Well there is a lot more that does not work with neither the touchpad nor the trackpoint.
Check this out: Scrolling using either of both possiblities does not work with Lenovos OWN applications! Scrolling does not work in PowerManager for example, same goes for Access Connections... At least on my X300 with most recent Ultranav2 driver installed.
This only show us that Lenovo DOES NOT USE their own stuff to get things done.That leaves nothing but a painful impression, Lenovo!!! First things first, do your homework!!!

I don't know if anyone from Lenovo or Alps reads this forum. Is it possible that they are unaware that scrolling with both trackpoint and touchpad does not work with so many applications? Sure seems like it would be something fairly easy to fix - especially since the X300 has been shipping for months. The release notes for the last version read ...
CHANGES IN THIS RELEASE
[New functions or enhancements]
- Support for ThinkPad R500.
How can they release a new driver and not fix any problems, when there are so many problems that need to be fixed???

We have Lenovo ThinkPadX300 model 6478-1HU running WinXP SP2.
I am trying to disable the mouse touch pad and leave the RED mouse track point enabled.
I spoke with Lenovo tech support in Atlanta, GA today and the answer was negative.
Any help will be appreciated.

From the control panel, select "mouse", select UltraNav tab, uncheck Touchpad, check Trackpoint. I have unchecked Trackpoint and checked Touchpad, so I know that works. I don't use the Trackpoint, so I haven't tried what you want to do.

I don't see an "UltraNav" tab, only Buttons, Pointers, Pointer Options, and Hardware. And I don't see anything within those tabs to disable the trackoint or touchpad. I'm running Windows 7. Any other ideas?

I'll answer my own question -- you first must go to Lenovo's website and download the UltraNav drives and UltraNav Utility. Then the UltraNav tab shows up on the Mouse window. I was able to succesfully disble the touchpad.
