TEX Trackpoints


If you’d like to forego a mouse and plant a navigation tool right on your keyboard, install a TEX Track Point today. While the installation requires in depth knowledge of your keyboard and will necessitate some soldering, once you get the Track Point installed, you can easily control all of the motion in the XY axis and even simulate a left button click, double click, or drag with the advanced Z-Tap algorithm. For a final touch, the TEX Track Point filters out any wireless EMI noise for silent operation and is fully compatible with Windows and Lenovo drivers.

Note: This drop is limited to 150 units.
