I need replacement trackpoint caps for my X200. I like the Soft Dome type. I checked on Lenovo Quickpick:
It says I have two options:
Option 2 sounds ideal for me, but it says "Low Profile", and I am not convinced they are compatible with the X200. I read here:
"For older models, you can get a pack of six TrackPoint caps (2x Soft Dome, 2x Classic Dome, 2x Soft Rim), search for FRU 73P2698. For the Haswell and the upcoming Broadwell machines, you can get a pack of 10 caps (all low profile Soft Dome), search for 0A33908."
Again, sounds like Low Profile trackpoints are not for the older models. Is Lenovo Quickpick wrong?

It sounds like you're looking for the 0A33908 - ThinkPad Low Profile TrackPoint Caps (10 pack, Soft Dome) kit.

Thanks Aryeh, but are the low profile caps really ok to use on the older models? I have an X200. From what I read the low profile trackpoints are only good for Haswell and newer models?

The TrackPoint "stem" on the keyboard is, as far as I know, universal in size across all ThinkPad models. The only real difference would be the "depth" of the TrackPoint cap. In the case you received a TrackPoint cap that was too "long" for the stem, you could always trim it down slightly with a hobby knife to make it fit.
