X230 Trackpoint stick requires much more pressure to move than my other Thinkpads

 I prefer to use my trackpoint stick rather than the touchpad because I can leave my hands in typing position.  Trouble is my X230 stick feels much harder to move than my other current and former  Thinkpads.  Even using the stick for just a couple minutes makes my finger sore. 

 

I have adjusted the Wndows control panel -> mouse ultranav -> trackpoint -> settings -> trakcpoint stick -> sensitivity to light touch.  But I use other thinkpads (T430, x120e) stick with sensitivity set in the middle and they are much easier to start movement with. 

 

All Lenovo drivers are current.

 

Seems that the X230 stick is different and requires much more pressure to get going compared to other models.

 

Any suggestions or other adjustments I could try?

 

Thanks.

try putting the T430 keyboard in the X230 and vice versa.
