The original ScrollPoint mouse debuted in to combine the similar TrackPoint mechanism as found on the ThinkPads to replace a standard mouse wheel. Other colours can be used as well, however not all will mix well with the IBM blue transluscent caps. Please make sure you read all of our ad and view all the photos.
