IBM What laptop is the most loved, and maybe the most famous laptop in the world? Which laptop went into space? Which laptop won over 300 design awards? I'm sure many of you will be thinking of something made by Apple, but the truth of the matter is that we're talking about something else: IBM's ThinkPad. You might wonder, where does that name come from?

Am i the only person in the world that thinks the nipple is an awful idea? I much prefer the trackball and the pad to the little dot and with long term use i think the touchpad is pretty horrendous too. But its good too see options exists for all those that prefer their own pointing preferences.


Compared to touchpads, I find that it takes longer to get used to a trackpoint - but that a trackpoint is better for anything that requires precision.

Personally I'll take a decent mouse over either, but I still find trackpoints much more bearable to use than touchpads.
