    I currently have a Lenovo laptop with this feature and was wondering what other laptops had this little red button in the center of the keyboard.. I really like that option.

    Thanks

    This has always been an IBM/lenovo trait, I really doubt you'll find it on other brands (maybe really old dells/hps).

    it tends to be a feature on business notebooks. im not sure if any companies started removing them from these machines... but for now id suggest checking the dell latitude/precisions and whatever the hp business models are called. I know these two brands had trackpoints on their business models in the past, im not sure what other manufacturers have used them besides ibm/lenovo

    M6400/m6500 have them, but they are black not red. Thus the pictures tend not to show them.

    Lenovo ThinkPad has the best trackpoint according to consensus.
