I'd probably pay more for a Scrollpoint Pro, but not that much. It's really horrible having your hand & mouse grind against the table all day. The easiest way to fix this is to apply a bit of gorilla super glue and let it settle in and seal the hole. It's practically brand new since I only used it a few times. navigate here
It had the wrong driver and I didn't realize what it was or could do with the right driver, so I found a Microsoft scroll wheel mouse and ditched the IBM Found it and using it at the moment. Oh wait, the iPad is already out. Another difference from the later red wheelers is the fact the IBM logo is printed higher at the same location as a ScrollPoint III. http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds003477
I had one for my desktop...then two side by side...now a third. Usually in only a matter of months. IC replacement Another possible yet less practical solution might be to replace the optical sensor entirely with a superior one able to operate on transparent surfaces, but it would have to Although, I don't think lenovo made them or branded them with lenovo.
Lenovo only manufactures the standard black issue ones. It's a pity, because, they're much better than the regular scrollpoint.I was able to buy one right before crapovo discontinued them. So IBM was thinking about it and left that unintentionally on the box art; however it appears no one noticed this, not even IBM themselves... (I didn't notice it either until Thus it would be something I'd look at when I can afford the latest w7xxds.
That's in a 2 year period approximately.I've seen two listings that DID ship to canada: but often or not they mislabeled it as I heretofore said.I WANT AN ANCIENT SAGE ONE!! Scrollpoint Mouse You can always change your theme.

ScrollPoint Microcontrollers The regular ScrollPoint III uses the Cypress CY7C63743-PC microcontroller. Although, mine looks like it just came out of the factory since I don't put much of my hand on it. Covering it w/ stickers just isn't an option.The software build is one thing, having it plastered all over the hardware is another.My next thinkpad will be a T42, lol.

You will lose the ability to track transparent surfaces however (presently looking into how to get the 'best' of both). http://wirelessint.com/mouse-driver/ibm-800dpi-scrollpoint-optical-mouse-driver.php Most mice will have red sensor LEDs as they are cheaper to manufacture and more responsive to the sensing IC. You have to use a fine pair of pliers to snip the excess plastic out, shown here: #3 swapping the thumb button plastics It takes a bit of careful prying, but MO28UOL - Revision B This revision uses an almost completely different circuit board, eradicates the use of the smaller square switches, and removes the spot for an extra LED.
This was was never sold separately from the keyboard. There are some of the non-Pro's on ebay, I'm wondering if they'd be a good choice of spare mice to keep around for those times you need a decent one in Still sticking with the good old Trackpoint for the forseeable future. his comment is here Welcome, Guest.
Because of the extra feature being able to use them with both interfaces, these microcontrollers are often found in mice from many vendors. Had it for 2 years now, use it every day.It's very hard to find them; getting one with an IBM-logo is quite in vain. Disclaimer: ibmfiles.com is not affiliated to IBM in any way.
The wheel does light up, click the picture for a larger image. I think it's 15% extra off. Any time I find it necessary to refer to it as Lenovo, I jokingly call it "Len-I can't believe it's not IBM-ovo" Logged deskthority.net EverythingIBM Thread Starter Posts: 1269 IBM Scrollpoint Might get one anyway for the lulz.I wonder how similar the Lenovo ones are...
Like all things, eventually these mice will be harder to find as time goes on. It seems to be a little too small to conform to my hand, but a little too large for the claw grip. Interesting.But the thing about the Scrollpoint Pro is that it's actually the sort of mouse I'd use, not a strange curio. weblink If I ever get a chip programmer I will update this section with more information.
