Trackpoint Drifting X1 Carbon gen 7

2020-01-22, 22:23 PM

Drift on my new 7th gen X1 makes the laptop unusable several times throughout the day. Getting carpal tunnel fighting this drift. Very disappointed there is no fix for this. I have purchased a wireless mouse which works with no drift whatsoever but the reason I bought Lenovo was for the trakpoint. If I have to use a wireless mouse I can purchase other brands now. Heat does seem to make this worse. Lenovo are you here?

This is so disappointing that Lenovo hasn't fixed this issue.  Starting to think about a new laptop and will seriously have to soul search to see if I should order another Lenovo with this long running trackpoint issue for years.  I paid premium dollars just to have the trackpoint.  :-(

I cant agree more. I just sold the X1Y3 which i loved but i had kept in a closet for a year simply because of this. I kept the x1 tablet 3rd gen which does not present this issue, hoping to find the next X1 extreme gen 2 without the issue.

The other day I was using my X61 tablet from 2007 (!!) and the trackpoint still works beautifully. Low pressure to activate, and no weird walkabouts like the one on my 2018 X1 Yoga 3rd gen.

 

There's a couple of disappointments about the X1Y3, and the trackpoint quality is near the top of the list. One would really hope that they're working hard internally to figure out how to do better, but if they are, they're keeping it mighty quiet!
