Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keys to success. Great build quality and trains your fingers/brain or when using the laptop keyboard (same feel, spacing etc). Built-in feet give a nice little angle to work at and the blueooth connection (I haven't tried usb) has been rock-solid. A+, I just ordered a second for home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mostly good with one fatal flaw: Fn <-> Ctrl The keyboard is very nice to type on the trackpoint works well, it connects quickly with either Bluetooth or via the USB receiver, and the layout is mostly familiar to ThinkPad fans. I say mostly because on every other ThinkPad I’ve owned, I can swap the Fn and Ctrl key. I use the control key a lot and it’s been frustrating. I’m actually thinking about returning the keyboard for this one flaw. It would also be nice for the Fn key to be better documented. Through trial and error I’ve found some of the key mappings (e.g. Fn-S for print screen). Even better would be if the driver would let me use the Fn key for my own stuff via simple keyboard macros.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ThinkPad Keyboard is the Bomb! Love this keyboard as it simulates my Lenovo think pad laptop board exactly but is allowing me to set up ergonomic work space that alleviates my cervical vertebra tension. I hope they continue to make this keyboard compatible with updated Windows 11....this one is marked for Windows 10

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solidly Built Wireless Keyboard This is a solidly built wireless keyboard that successfully straddles the line between a desktop and portable keyboard. The absence of a trackpad helps it achieve its compact size but trackpad users might have a difficult time adjusting to this keyboard. As a diehard TrackPoint user, I'm glad it's gone since there is no wasted real estate. The Bluetooth setup & connectivity is flawless and the keyboard is a delight to type on considering its compact size. It also works well with typing on my iPhone 12 Mini My only complaint is the limited typing angle since the keyboard feet can only engaged in one position (it needs at least two different angles). Otherwise than that, it's close to being a perfect wireless keyboard for TrackPoint users.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I'm doing more streaming with my TV connected to a LENOVO M900 computer. Works great. Just needed a keyboard/trackPoint device to control the computer. This keyboard is exactly what I wanted. Feels like the familiar keyboard/trackPoint on my laptop and controls the LENOVO M900 from across the room. Will purchase another of these keyboards for another location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Great wireless keyboard. I dont know if I could ever use another one besides the Thinkpad keyboard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much Greatness in Lenovo's history! While my title calls out Lenovo's great history, its current products leave MUCH to be desired. Lets go over its cons and why these are such HUGE cons 1a: FN Key location, where Ctrl is, probably the dumbest thing they could have done, and how to swap them is one of googles highest "searched for" with regards to Lenovo Keyboards (separate or laptop, it applies to both) 1b: This will stack with other con's but this one is huge, there is no easy, or moderate way to swap these keys on the dedicated keyboard, only on laptops. To make matters worse here, Lenovo reply has "no interest" in resolving this issue in current, and the big kicker FUTURE models... 2a: It comes with the "media" keys enabled by default instead of the F keys, with Lenovo's history of being used in a business where the F keys are most commonly used, this is maddening 2b: To make matters worse, It seems that the FN Lock does not survive device or connection swaps meaning you have to do it every time you power on the keyboard to connect to a system 3a: You cannot use the USB port as a 3rd possible connection like you can with almost any competitor's keyboard, such a huge miss here 3b: In conjunction with the above, its important to note that the rechargeable battery is NOT user replaceable, meaning when it dies, or if it cuts out right after the warranty ends (as seems common), outside of self-repair, its TRASH... 4a: Lenovo's website for the keyboard lists no downloads, you have to google search or go to the URL on the paper it ships with 4b: Even after you get to the right site, the manuals and such are not there, you have to use a different landing page for the keyboard to get them 4c: On the downloads page for the software, the readme for the drivers are outdated and thus useless 5a: Drivers don't actually offer any true customization, why even have them and claim "for full function install drivers".. 5b: No onboard memory for the keyboard means any settings much like FN Lock above is forgotten when connecting to a different/new system Now, with all of these con's its important to note if you do your OWN research with google analytics to find out what the most common/related search term for the product is (model number or name), you will find almost all 5 of these are the very TOP search results, you can ALSO find HUGE threads over on the OFFICIAL lenovo forums where AGAIN, these are the top results. It would NOT be so bad if Lenovo's reply was NOT actually WE DONT CARE and WE WONT CHANGE IT or WE WONT EVEN GIVE YOU THE OPTION to change it... Literally insulting the customer. The ONLY Pro I feel this deserves having used older models and Lenovo laptops for work for years, due to its combined keyboard/mouse nature, its nice to save space, but it will sadly not replace my current keyboard for IT on the go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid little keyboard that travels well. Great keyboard - solid feel with the versatility of the TrackPoint pointing stick. I prefer it to the keyboard that attaches to my ThinkPad X1 tablet and can use it with my Android tablet as well. The only thing I wish it had was the ability to do backlighting, but can understand why it doesn't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great wireless keyboard I bought this to replace a Logitec bluetooth keyboard (K380 multi-device bluetooth keyboard). There was nothing wrong with the keyboard but I didn't like the feel of the keys and found it difficult to type with. I use a Lenovo ThinkPad for work and loved that keyboard, so when I found this, I thought I'd give it a try. It's been great - nice touch to the keys, small and compact.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This is just a ThinkPad keyboard, but wireless. Works and feels just like the laptop. Wireless (2.4G and Bluetooth) have been flawless, and I have only charged it once in 3 months. Fn, left Ctrl, and Windows key placement took some getting used to, but I can see why they did it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice typing experience, but dead after 3 days Although the overall build quality and the typing experience were nice, my unit suddenly died after just 3 days of use. Neither Bluetooth nor USB connections work with any of the computers that I have tried with; the only sign of life is the charging light that lights up when connected to power. I had to return mine, but considering all other reviews, I assume I was just unlucky with a bad unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could it get any better? I don't have a lot of words to say about this keyboard. I've never experienced anything like it. It definitely has the same. Wonderful key feeling as the famous ThinkPad keyboards. The Bluetooth works flawlessly on Windows 10. But I have not tried it on other Bluetooth devices such as a TV or Xbox yet. But I'm sure the performance would probably be the same. The build quality of the keyboard is very solid and it looks like it has been constructed very meticulously.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Frustratingly short of great. There is so much to like about this keyboard - trackpoint, good key travel in a compact form factor. BUT, the fact that it's impossible to swap the Fn and Ctrl keys is ridiculous. Ctrl is a super high-usage key, and unequivocally belongs in the bottom right-most position of every keyboard. I honestly don't know why Lenovo persist in putting the Fn there at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Trackpoint Keyboard This keyboard is the most affordable wireless trackpoint keyboard. Cons: The chasis. The bottom of the keyboard can shift into and out of the top frame of the keyboard making a sound when you pinch the user-side (left and right) corners (rarely noticeable). Additionally, the the keyboard can flex just enough so the middle of the keyboard makes contact with my desk when pressure is applied, also making a sound. This was more anoying, I had to put electrical tape on the bottom of my keyboard to act as a spacer. I've owned 2 of these keyboards and this issue is present on both.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Longer Turns On After 8 Months Purchased 8 months ago and was initially satisfied with the functionality / experience. The keyboard reproduced the performance of the Thinkpad keyboard, trackpoint and all. At 8 months, the keyboard failed to turn on if not plugged into a power source. When plugged into the USB power source, the keyboard functions as desired. When not, it doesn't work at all. The battery appears to be fully charged as indicated by the solid white charging LED light. Not sure if the keyboard's battery is the issue or some other component is degraded. Lenovo support not helpful in resolving / suggesting an alternative. Disappointing, the keyboard lasted less than one year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE LEG IS BROKEN! I am a former IBMer and I have the most sincere affection for any product that bears the Thinkpad brand. Unfortunately the organization I work for has recently stopped offering Thinkpads to staff. Perhaps for this reason, I really love this keyboard. The touch is absolutely perfect, as has always been the keyboard on all Thinpads. In the corner of my desk there is this noisy CPU that I know isn't a Thinkpad, but all the time I'm toucinhg my beloved Thinkpad keyboard. We live a love story to this day. But today one of the legs broke. And that's when I realized how fragile the leg I was. The cost of this leg should be close to zero, but I have no way of fixing it. My only option is to buy another whole keyboard. Definitely the price of another keyboard is something I can definitely afford considering the passion I have for Thinkpads and this keyboard in particular. But, let's face it: that doesn't make any sense! I still don't know what I am going to do. Use the keyboard without the leg? Will I get used to it? The position looks very bad. Attach something underneath instead of the leg? I would NEVER do that. One of IBM's cherished mottos was "Good Design is Good Business". Under no circumstances would I even remotely consider altering the design with a disgusting adaptation. I do not know. I might end up buying a keyboard from that competitor who is now supplying the organization's laptops where I work. Any other suggestions?

Doubles great for internet surfing with trackpoint. ONLY complaint is the type-C charging port is REALLY tight, and I see how you could break if you aren’t really careful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Opinions and Comparisons with Original Model Compared to the first Trackpoint Bluetooth Keyboard, this one is an extreme step up. The keys feel far nicer than the original, the mouse buttons are clicky, the fact I can now use a USB Dongle and not only bluetooth is wonderful in situations where I do not have access to bluetooth. The selector switch and power switch are nice because instead of just holding it and waiting for an LED to light up like the original, they are proper on and off switches so I know if the keyboard doesn't turn on, it's likely dead. All in all the Trackpoint Keyboard II is, in my opinion, a far cry above it's original and a great choice for a backpack keyboard, a media center keyboard, or a secondary backup keyboard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool idea - but has the feel and function of a toy On my second one in the last 6 months. The feel of the keyboard is just lightweight and plasticky. Toy-like overall impression. Now. The real drawback. Neither keyboard lasted more than a couple of months. The track point on both got really really wonky. Started with wanting to wander all over the screens all on its own. This required a continuous counter direction pointing - neither comfortable or very precise. I want to use a pointer by feel, not having to watch it at all times. Finally, the track points just got non-responsive in one or two directions. This is just NOT the keyboard from your ThinkPad. NOT RECOMMENDEDED - ACTUALLY, THE RECOMMENDATION IS TO GET SOMETHING ELSE.

The keyboard isn’t quite as nice as on my current most-used Thinkpad—a T450s—but’s it’s very close…much, much better than the keyboard I tried out on the Macbook Air M1. And it has a trackpoint! I dislike touchpads, so having the trackpoint makes this a much better option for me than the Apple Magic Keyboard. I highly recommend this keyboard for Thinkpad users.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a nice keyboard, it'd better if support 3 device Love the lenovo keyobard bluetooth II. My first laptop several years before is a thinkpad 14 inch one, whose keyboard is best one as I used. Later when I switched to MacBook pro, I began to buy thinkpad bluetooth keyboard for coding. Till now, I have owned 2 thinkpad bluetooth I keyboard, 3 thinkpad bluetooth keyboard with 3 devices switchable and one of this 2nd generation. The first several ones are similar feeling when typing. Compared to this one, the previous generations may have around 1/4 more range that I feels a little better. However, the reduced range seems to make the each key more stable and that let typing feel more confident and accurate. So hard to say which one is better. One of the big issue with thinkpad keyboard is that it is very easy to be greasy (e.g. after one month usage or so that make it less comfortable. The matte texture at the surface helps a lot for typing feel while seems wear out soon. Since this generation also use ABS but not PBT key, I guess sooner or later it will appear. One concern of this generation is only switchable between two devices and the switching is not that convenient to control (a tiny switcher on the border, while I prefer a key for this).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trackpoint Keyboards are the best! The keyboard is great. My only comment was that it wasn't 100% obvious that the wireless USB nub inserted on the back of the keyboard was in a 'dummy' plug (namely it is just a 'holder' for the nub). You are supposed to 'unplug' the nub from the keyboard and plug it into your computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent wireless keyboard! Very comfortable keyboard. Slight curvature to each key is just like the ThinkPad keyboards, and a very responsive key press. Virtually silent. I wish that the Function Lock was on a physical switch so I didn't have to hit Fn + Esc to lock the F1, F2 keys, and I wish that I could hop between 3 or more devices. (You can switch between USB dongle and Bluetooth mode, so 2 devices max). But otherwise, an excellent keyboard. The TrackPoint control is the icing on the cake! Keep my fingers on the keys!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lenovo Thinkpad Trackpoint review The feel of the key presses is great - smooth and tactile. Your mileage may vary if you don't like shallow keys with short travel distances. My only gripes are I wish the function and ctrl keys switched places and that the track point was more responsive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compact keyboard Compared the previous wired micro-USB version, this new model has slightly better key and trackpoint feel alongside multiple input modes: BT, USB-A wireless receiver, and wired USB-C.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great potential, problematic execution I have three versions of this keyboard -- the usb wired, the V1 bluetooth, and the V2 bluetooth. I use the V2 bluetooth as my main keyboard. BT works well, and the keys work well. Problems include POOR keyboard feet, which have broken in all three versions. I agree with others who call for backlighting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great portable keyboard with integrated TrackPoint I love everything about this keyboard with the exception that it is not ergonomic. It has the best scissor switches I have ever used and it actually makes me type faster with fewer errors than any other keyboard. People say it doesn't feel quite as good as the keyboard on the ThinkPad X1 Carbon, which I do own, but the slight difference is probably due to the fact that it is on a less robust plastic base compared to the more solid structure of the ThinkPad Laptop. Finally, I really like the integrated ThinkTrack mouse stick thingy because it precludes me needing to bring a mouse while moving my computer. It does not take that long to get used to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from no key mapping facility; ctrl key almost works I still haven't found a bluetooth keyboard that I can use to run Emacs productively on an Android device. This keyboard, in combination with Apedroid's "External Keyboard Helper" app, *almost* works: I can swap capslock and right-control, and I can swap backtick/tilde with escape. However, no matter what I do, I can't combine the (repositioned control key with backslash or underscore. The hardware seems good, but the firmware's ability to be reconfigured is nonexistent, and External Keyboard Helper, strong as it is, isn't strong enough to overcome that completely. I'm disappointed. I also have several non-Bluetooth, wired USB Lenovo trackpoint keyboards (several of them, in fact). Alas, they cannot be used with my Pixel phone because the phone offers no way to connect other than Bluetooth. (And wired keyboards are so... last-century.) I have no solution other than to map the unmappable keys to new ALT combinations, because that's what External Keyboard Helper supports, but this upends 65 years of keyboarding habits dating back to the Lear-Siegler ADM-3 computer terminal, which, with deep correctness from the perspective of productivity, put the control key where IBM decreed there should always, stupidly, be a rarely-used capslock key. IBM did that to please the existing users of already-obsolete typewriters (typewriters had no control key, obviously, but IBM had a large-for-the-era customer base of ex-typewriter users). Everyone has suffered, ever since, from a productivity-poisoning need to leave the home row every time a control key is needed. Crazy. Ever since, many many computer users have struggled to remap the control key on every kind of computer and terminal. Mostly, we've succeeded in doing that. With this Bluetooth keyboard, it can *almost*, but not quite, be done. Sad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ordering and bluetooth issues. First, I wanted to corded version, which I had but got stolen before, and which is cheaper, but this one said ships in 5-7 days and the other was several weeks. 3 weeks later I finally received the product (so could have picked the corded version I wanted). The keys are nice and I like the track point and ergonomics just like the corded version, but the bluetooth cuts out frequently and either stops typing or gets stuck typing a single a letter over and over for several seconds. Plugging it in doesn't seem to make it more reliable. Definitely a problematic transaction and not worth the cost and extra hassle of ordering through Lenovo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Durable, does not live up to the Thinkpad name I love Thinkpad keyboards and using the red nub so I thought this would be great. After a few weeks, one of the flip out feet broke and I spent hours with support trying to get a replacement part, but the agent could not even find the product in the system. It was like they don't consider this a product of theirs. I was finally able to get them to honor the warranty but i had to send in the whole keyboard first then they would send a replacement. So I was without my keyboard for over a month, terrible service. With the new one I never use the feet out of fear they will break again. Shortly after a year (the warranty period) a keycap breaks off. I have tried again to find a replacement part but support doesn't offer parts and now I'm out of warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great keyboard! Classic Thinkpad feel and build. This is a great keyboard. If you've always liked the long-standing best Thinkpad keyboard and TrackPoint, you'll find that here in an easy to set up portable wireless format. Solid build with no sacrifices in layout or spacing. Sturdy fold out feet give comfortable typing angle and good traction on smooth surfaces, good weight for typing on it in your lap. TrackPoint gives easy nav in even bumpy conditions. Easy out-of-the-box setup and simple connection to a variety of devices; Android phone, Windows, NVIDIA Shield. Some individual apps on Shield don't fully utilize track point nav but still worked with arrow keys. Classic Thinkpad quality at a great price point. There are certainly cheaper wireless keyboards out there, but in most cases exactly that, cheaper build, and none with the well-designed TrackPoint.

I have used only the Bluetooth connectivity with various devices: Lenovo ThinkPad P1 Gen 4 computer; Yoga Smart Tab tablet; Lenovo ThinkPad T460s. The TrackPoint function, which I use exclusively on my ThinkPad computers, works perfectly in all aspects. I have used the keyboard from my "easy chair" to operate my computer, using our HD television as the computer monitor. That is especially convenient when processing various documents and streaming video. I have taken the keyboard, along with my Yoga Smart Tab, to meetings, and the keyboard works wonderfully to record notes and minutes of meetings, etc. The ThinkPad TrackPoint Keyboard II has met all my expectations, and I am very pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super versatile and well made, I love it! I was so excited when I saw that the trackpoint keyboard was updated, and I just had to get this and check it out. Features wise, it's a great configuration! I love having the freedom to connect either wired, Bluetooth, or even the classic and reliable wireless USB dongle. The wireless range and quality is fantastic and was able to still use the keyboard from a couple rooms over. The USB C for the wired connection also a definite bonus! The build quality is honestly much better than I expected. While it looks slightly light and plastic-y, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it has a good weight to it and is very rigid and strong. There's almost no flex while typing and is clearly reinforced internally which makes for a super strong build and fantastic typing experience. The keyboard has the same classic ThinkPad feel with just a little more tactile feel which i personally really like. The trackpoint is exactly like what I'm used to from my thinkpad and I have no complaints there either. Overall I'm very happy with this new keyboard and very glad Lenovo did this refresh! I'm excited to keep this keyboard on me as I move between several devices and locations and taking full advantage of it's small size and great connectivity versatility. Well done Lenovo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleasant typing experience After hearing about the pleasant typing experience to be had with Lenovo keyboards, particularly the ThinkPad keyboards, I wanted to give this a try. And the hype is mostly true -- this is one of the nicest typing experiences I've ever had. I really enjoy the feel of this keyboard. I'm a Mac user, and the keyboard still works, albeit with limitations. Not all the function keys work, nor does forward delete via FN+BACKSPACE, which was really disappointing, but there is a dedicated forward delete key that does work. But Lenovo didn't design this keyboard to be used with Apple computers, so that's not their fault. All that said, I really do enjoy this keyboard. My typing needs are fairly simple, so it works well for me. And, yes, I would still buy it again, despite the limitations when using it on a Mac.

The Trackpoint is a big productivity aid that allows folks to "mouse around" without having to move your hands away from the keys! I also like the option of using either Bluetooth or Wireless USB. Some company provided computers disable Bluetooth for security reasons. The keyboard also works well using Samsung's Desktop EXperience DEX on mobile devices. My only suggestions would be to allow it to operate as a USB Keyboard (USB A or USB C) while charging or connected to a docking station, and the ability to share the USB dongle with wireless mice since USB A ports are getting more scarce.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The legs will break and there is no support The keyboard worked great until one of the legs broke. I only used it a few times. The leg is probably a 2 cent part. Lenovo's system will not recognize the serial number, so they are unable to open a support ticket. Dealing with Lenovo over this issue has completely changed my impression of the company. Do not buy any Lenovo accessories and assume they will honor the warranty that comes in the box. There are dozens and dozens of complaints on the support forum about the same issue. Lenovo representatives on the support forum say that the defective legs are a known issue and to contact customer support. But customer support is powerless to open a support ticket. Customer support will transfer you to sales, who will then transfer you back to customer support and so on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A basic small form factor wireless keyboard I bought this keyboard slightly less than a year ago and the left "leg" broke without any rough treatment on my part (the root cause of the failure seems to be back and forth movement on the desk, as the rubber pads are very sticky on glass). There were no replacements in the package. Other that the weak leags, the build quality seems good. The keyboard feels surprisingly heavy for its size and solid. The typing experience is roughly the same as in ThinkPad laptops, perhaps requiring a tad less force to press the keys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NEEDS Numeric Keypad option to be perfect! I wish there were a 4.5 star option, because this is a really terrific keyboard, it's just lacking a couple of options that would truly make it perfect. The ThinkPad TrackPoint keyboard makes the keyboard of the laptop (or desktop) you're using entirely irrelevant, as it gives you the comfort of a ThinkPad keyboard - each key basically hugs each finger it touches, and makes typing a more comfortable experience. Add in the TrackPoint feature, and it's spectacular, especially for someone like me, who after multiple spinal fusion surgeries are unable to type using a laptop (or sitting at a desk with a desktop), for any significant period of time. The ThinkPad TrackPoint Keyboard gives me the ability to position the keyboard in a position that is more comfortable for me, while still being able to view screen etc, AND, I'm able to use the mouse (aka TrackPoint) to navigate without moving my arms! I know the trackpoint is relatively controversial - most people either love it or hate it, but I think it's absolutely genius. My spine & I thank you! There is one thing that would make this wonderful keyboard even better, though...a numpad!! I VERY much wish there was a ThinkPad TrackPoint Keyboard WITH Numpad available! That would bring it all together for me, and make it the BEST (and only!) option of its kind available! As it stands, I need to have TWO separate wireless keyboards, one WITH numpad, and this ThinkPad keyboard. I would be thrilled not to need 2 keyboards cluttering up my space, when I really only need the 2nd keyboard for the numeric keypad! (The other keyboard is the Lenovo Essentials Wireless, which runs on AA batteries rather than being rechargeable like the ThinkPad TrackPoint keyboard). I like the keys on the Essentials keyboard as well (similar to ThinkPad TrackPoint in the way they cup or hug your fingers thanks to the curve in them), and love the NumPad, but the Essentials keyboard lacks the mouse/TrackPoint functionality, and as mentioned, batteries vs rechargeable... so, 2 keyboards it is, until Lenovo listens to its customers and brings us a ThinkPad TrackPoint Keyboard WITH numeric keyboard - I really hope that day comes soon! In case Lenovo is reading this, another wonderful bonus to a TrackPoint keyboard would be offering a backlight option! I would absolutely LOVE a ThinkPad TrackPoint keyboard WITH NUMPAD AND Backlighting! Those 2 little things would make this already great keyboard absolute perfection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost there… Overall great. Love the USB and Bluetooth support. Love the built in track pad/pointer. Makes it very convenient for couch-TV use. The only flaw I see is the depth of the space bar compared to the front keyboard lip where you rest your palms on. With most keyboards I can tap the space at with my thumbs pretty comfortably. But due to the front lip being slightly taller than the spacebar you really have to force your thumb down to hit the space bar. The design just needs some tweaks to perfect it. Build quality is also very nice. Doesn’t feel cheap, though I would always prefer metal over plastic. I see note value here compared to an apple keyboard due to the built in mouse, but it’s slightly behind in comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Critical missing functionality: Fn+Ctrl Swap Returned immediately due to a lack of ability to switch Fn & Control keys on a hardware/firmware level. Half my lenovo machines have control on the right, and the other half have it on the left (like the rest of the industry & my non-lenovo machines). Can't lean on driver software because I use linux often. Was very excited about this tool to unify my keyboard setups but this is missing expected lenovo functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skip using the onscreen keyboard when texting! If you are fan of Lenovo's keyboards, and are looking for a good keyboard to use with your phone or tablet, then look no further. This keyboard is fantastic! I prefer to use it when answering a text while sitting at my desk as I despise using the onscreen keyboard. It also works great if you have a workspace that is very tight - we have a desk setup that doesn't have much real estate, and so this comfortable keyboard fits the bill as we don't need to connect a mouse. The only negative is that the feet are not the sturdiest - we have multiple keyboards here, and some of them have broken! We were able to replace with a sturdier 3D printed alternative. I did gave it 5 stars because it doesn't prevent usage at all, but just be aware that you may want to be a bit careful with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome full size keyboard with small size factor I have used this keyboard for 4 months and I have really enjoyed the experience. I use the USB dongle for connection and I haven't had any interuptions. It has a solid high quality feel. I haven't had any issues with it. I still own a 2015 era MacBook pro - the layout & usage feels similar to that one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Good! I love these keyboards, and I'm really happy that there is finally a new model to replace my old one that broke. It seems like the center button often issues a click event before it is released, which is making it difficult to scroll with the trackpoint, but otherwise it's a big improvement over the old one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ThinkPad Keyboard on non-ThinkPad computers I purchased this keyboard to be used with my Legion desktop computer because I wanted the trackball from the ThinkPad keyboard.

I'm happy to see Lenovo return to making quality keyboards that set them apart from other laptop brands.the Bluetooth connects quickly with my windows and Linux computer. If you appreciate the Thinkpad brand and the quality from the IBM days then this is a must for your collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You might get a good one, or not This 2-star rating is a combined rating of the two Trackpoint II keyboards that I've purchased. The first one works fine (and I'd have given it a 4-star rating, only because I'd prefer a full size layout, which they don't offer as a wireless with the trackpoint, the second one that was ordered later arrived with a dead battery. I spent approximately 2 hours on the phone with support, when it has a dead battery. Installing drivers isn't going to help with a dead battery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than the original version, but... I own two of these keyboards, and until this week I had nothing by praise for them. BUT a couple days ago, one of their tiny plastic fold out legs ( see photo) broke somehow (I have no idea how) and now the thing is unusable. I have spent perhaps four or five hours now trying to get a replacement for it. But I have had no success at all. One service representative had the nerve to suggest that I should just buy another keyboard!

If you enjoy the thinkpad keyboard experience this is a must buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basically As Good As the Laptop Keyboard Sometimes the keyboard will auto FnLock on its own, I wish the primary/secondary/scroll buttons were more prounounced like they are on my thinkpad laptop, and I wish the spacing of the spacebar was moved up a few millimeters. The only truly bad thing I can say about it is that my microphone (F4) button doesn't actually turn my microphone on or off. I updated software and still no fix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worse than the keyboards in ThinkPad laptops The TrackPoint buttons are poorly implemented. They are flat and hard to grope. The barely noticeable bumps on the middle button do little to help. On ThinkPad laptops (especially older ones) these buttons are designed much more intelligently and feel (grope blindly) much better. The Fn and Ctrl keys cannot be programmatically swapped, similar to how it is possible on ThinkPad laptops. This is a big disadvantage for me that makes serious work at the computer impossible. This product cannot be found by the serial number on the Lenovo website. This means that there is no possibility to contact Support on the site.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready to Write a Book! I'm transitioning to retirement and in a few weeks will no longer have my trusty ThinkPad T580. I personally own a 2nd generation ThinkPad X1 Tablet, which came with a very thin and flexy keyboard, which is fine for light typing--- but does not stand up to all day writing. It is also a bit cramped. The X1 needed an external keyboard, and nothing can beat ThinkPad keyboards with their built in TrackPoint mouse. I like that it is both Bluetooth and dongle connected, and is compatible with Android devices. The feel is 100% as solid as my current ThinkPad, and possibly even better! This TP keyboard reminds my of some of my older TP models. The feel is certain and smooth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most practical keyboard Having like use to be only on a laptop, is fantastic, the power of keeping your hands in the keyboard is pretty good, the keys in general feel as everybody know about thinkpad, fantastic. The reason to remove a start is that the nipple start to moves by itself after some use, and I see in the forums many people complaining about it, and the only solution is turn off the keyboard, and turn it on again, so clearly is not a physical problem, is something else. The other reason to remove a star is that the switching between using the dongle and the bluetooth is somewhat slow, like 6 seconds, I have other keyboard that just does it instant, and this is something I really want it to have two devices control with one keyboard in this way, the range of the dongle is not more than 3 feet if you want it to use it typing fast, beyond that became to be a slow keyboard, the bluetooth in the other hand works great. At the end I love it, I wait so so many years to have this keyboard just in general since the first thinkpad I ever use so many years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Track point city If you are a fan of the track point this keyboard is a must. Usually when I use an external keyboard I will be using a mouse, so the use cases for this aren't as obvious. I will be putting this is the conference room at my office. During internal meetings you don't need to pass the keyboard and mouse around for other people to make a point. It's one piece. As far as having a media PC in a living room goes, I think this is a much better option than any other all in one keyboard.

I read a lot of reviews that mostly complained about the location of the Fn and Ctrl keys. I agree it takes a bit of getting used to because they are swapped on most keyboards. I use a ThinkPad laptop for work/home use so I chose to get something with the same key layout because I had already built up the muscle memory of where the keys are located. Other than that the keyboard has a great feel and I love typing on it.

Love that it has wireless usb because I use it with my monitor’s built in KVM switch — so I can easily switch between my Linux and Mac setups. One suggestion for Mac users: I remapped cmd and alt keys so they match Apple’s layout and used a label maker to create stickers for those keys to indicate their new purpose. (I suppose It could physically swap the keys but I don’t want to find out the hard way that it’s not possible!)

I like using my mouse with this keyboard, as too much use of the track point ball leaves my hands feeling cramped and restricted. What would make this keyboard perfect for me? A number pad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You need to enable swapping the FN CTRL keys. God awful that you won't let me switch the FN and CTLR keys. Like, that's such a default expected thing, and it's trivial to do in the software. All of your laptops have this, both in software and in the bios. I don't see why this keyboard has to be an exception. That's inconsistent design. It's a shame, it truly is potentially the perfect keyboard. You could easily take over the entire keyboard market with this switch. But you won't. My unit was also straight up defective so there's that. I would like to see a gen 3 where this keyboard is done right. You open it up to so many users with fn ctrl swtich. Like, what was your marketing team even thinking. What was your design team thinking with not including this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Few things Every time I boot up my laptop, I have to turn off fn lock. You need it off to use volume controls. The chassis bows up towards the center. I'm still waiting for one with the number pad. ThinkPad should also include swappable fn and ctrl keys and have a hard switch on the keyboard to switch the keys' functions. Since I use it on an HP, there's no option in the bios to switch them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lenovo TrackPoint Keyboard is Terrific I'm in love with the Lenovo TrackPoint keyboard. The key feel and travel are excellent and the red trackpoint device is itself worth the price of admission. I never have to take my hands off the keyboard. The trackpoint is just as easy to use as a mouse (it does take a short while to get used to it; but not much time).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost perfect for now. I spent quite a few hours doing my research before purchasing this keyboard. Not to mention countless, sleepless nights hoping that the retail price will drop from its original price (fortunately, it did which was one of the catalysts to proceed with my purchase). So here’s what I think of this product. During my preliminary research, I had read that many people complained about the position of the Fn and Ctrl keys, which I didn’t quite understand. Then on my first day, as I was typing (whilst highlighting by using Ctrl + arrow keys), it dawned upon me that said keys should have been reversely positioned. It’s been about a month since my purchase and I am slowly getting accustomed to the “reversed” key positions. Now I sympathise with other reviewers. One of my initial reluctance (actually more like hesitation or discouragement) to purchase this keyboard was due to its lack of back-lit keyboard function. Frankly, I still wish Lenovo had made it with the back-lit function. Granted that the battery life is approximately 2 months based on a single charge, which is quite impressive. FYI, my keyboard is still going strong. But personally I would rather have the back-lit keyboard function with a shorter battery life (say 1 month which is more than sufficient - at least for me). The set-up was incredibly easy & self-explanatory. So far (after approximately a month of continuous usage of 12 hrs/day), I have yet to lose connection via the dongle connection. Plus I do like the fact that the keyboard has a built-in dongle slot which is rather clever & convenient. But the packaging was shockingly slight (yet tight). When I saw the original package, frankly I was surprised that it actually made the trip from Hong Kong in one piece. There’s no protector, foam, bubble…etc. It’s just densely packaged in a thin cardboard box. The important thing is that it arrived safely and surprisingly quickly. I am not sure how to travel with this keyboard though since I have yet to find the carrying case/pouch for this keyboard. I reckon I will have to use bubble wraps for now. Over all, I would strongly recommend this keyboard to anybody who is looking for a compact keyboard. One of the reasons that this keyboard drew my attention was its compactness. I prefer typing whilst the centre of my keyboard is aligned with the centre of my monitor. With a conventional keyboard, I would have to move the keyboard to the right side slightly in order to position the centre of the keyboard (where the G and H keys are located) aligned to the centre of the monitor (since the right side of the keyboard side usually has the built-in numeric keypad). And this repositioning will further move the mouse away from the centre. Perhaps others don’t mind this but I am a bit eccentric when it comes to positioning my hands when typing & using the mouse. Since I can use both the built-in track point and an additional mouse (which I am doing), I am quite pleased with this keyboard. I would say it’s the best purchase I have made in a long time. My only recommendation would be for the next model, the built-in tilt adjustable stand should be somewhat longer (additional 0.5cm would perfect). But I do like the rubberised ends. Clever engineering on that part. Lastly, Lenovo’s offering of an additional discount for seniors via ID.me (I initially applied for it as a joke then I realised I am THAT old) was a plus for me. I can’t wait for the version III. Hopefully it will have the back-lit feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hardware build, fatal software flaws. Nice size and feel. Couple issues: The Fn and Ctrl key can't be swapped, unlike on Thinkpad laptops. So if you're used to having them swapped, you'll have a hard time adjusting. For now, I'm trying to get used to using the right Ctrl instead. The FnLock light isn't persistent. It turns off after a while, likely to save battery. But it means you can't know ahead of time if the F key you're hitting will do the normal or the "enhanced" function.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bluetooth Keyboard on the Market...Finally! I initially saw the announcement on Engadget before this launched. Having recently purchased the Galaxy Tab S7+ 5G, purchased a ruggedized case for it, the only thing I needed was an awesome keyboard. I love love love Thinkpad keyboards. From the spacing between the keys, cupped surface and key travel, there is NO better keyboard out there. With my 12.4 Inch 5G enabled tablet and this keyboard, my business is now fully mobile. I can estimate projects, draw legal contracts, save them as a pdf and then use the stylus to have clients sign them in the field all thanks to this bundled and enabled by a bluetooth keyboard I can easily type 75+ words per minute. The Logitech bluetooth keyboards are very good, this is the "Mercedes" of keyboards in terms of quality, function and ease of use. I lost the red nub for the trackpoint within a week, so for $6 I bought a small package and I keep them handy so in the real world when I'm working with the keyboard, pulling it in and out of my computer bag I've got extras, buy them at the same time so your prepared. This is by far, the best bluetooth keyboard out there, HIGHLY reccomend.

There is no backlight for the keys. Most of these are used for home theater pc so having backlight is useful in the dark. I would recommend a sliding switch on the side for turning it on and off, similar to the on/off switch. 2nd is that the 3 mouse buttons don't have enough texture between them that I have a hard time trying to switch between left clicking and middle for scrolling. I ended up clicking the wrong button too many time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not a generic Bluetooth keyboard and mouse device. This was almost the perfect, wireless keyboard ... but it's just meh. I was excited to receive it expecting that it would be a wireless keyboard with pointing stick but it does not work as a generic Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. While I paired it with my system and connected it does not deliver generic keyboard and mouse events. It *does* work, however, as a generic keyboard and mouse when the USB receiver is utilized - but then it only works with systems that have a USB type A connector - which many portable devices lack. Mechanically it has the feel of the current Lenovo laptop keyboards - which is reasonable and what I expected. It lacks the collection of media hotkeys that previous Lenovo keyboards had (why does Lenovo take previous, good designs and make them worse?. So much for a nice Bluetooth device.

It's lighter than I expected, has a ton of connectivity options (USB, Wireless USB Receiver, and Bluetooth, and charges over USB C. The keys are shaped nicely and feel great to press down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from still a solid keyboard, with minor annoyances I also have the previous version external keyboard (bluetooth only) from maybe four years ago (and I've had a ton of thinkpads over the years). The lower profile keys on this version are not great (seems like they get lower and lower profile with every kbd revision), but the keys didn't change that much compared to the trackpoint click buttons, which are way too low profile and have too way little travel, especially the middle click. If it were just about the feel of the keyboard, these issues would make it a bit worse that the BT version, but the connectivity (bluetooth and 2.4ghz dongle) is great for my use case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best wireless keyboard yet! The TrackPoint Keyboard II is the best wireless keyboard on the market. Here's why I think so. 1. The battery life is awesome -- at 2 months of battery life, you can use this keyboard for more than twice as long as the previous generation TrackPoint Keyboard without recharging it. 2. This is one of very few keyboards on the market that have a TrackPoint at all, and other wireless keyboards that have a TrackPoint are almost nonexistent. If you understand why TrackPoints are so great, this is an obvious killer feature. 3. The keyboard is very small, while still being large enough to type at full speed. This frees up desk space for other stuff. The small size of the keyboard is a big reason why I prefer it over other keyboards. 4. The included wireless USB receiver makes it easy to operate this keyboard on a system without a Bluetooth adapter, or with a buggy Bluetooth adapter. Having the flexibility of using either the USB receiver or the Bluetooth protocol is fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One big step forward; many small steps backward I was initially excited about the Thinkpad Trackpoint Keyboard II because I used its predecessor (the ThinkPad Compact Bluetooth Keyboard with TrackPoint) for ~4 years and still continue to do so. The major upgrade to this keyboard over its predecessor is that it has both Bluetooth (technically Bluetooth Low Energy [BLE]) connectivity and a 2.4GHz USB-A driven connection. This is good because the range/latency of the 2.4G connection is significantly superior to that of Bluetooth. Its predecessor could not be used for couch-gaming or work without loss of keystrokes; this keyboard can. A minor upgrade is that the F1-F12 keys are now grouped in three sets of four keys. However, there are many small downsides to this version: 1. The FnLock function is reversed. In its predecessor, FnLock OFF meant that the F1-F12 keys performed the usual application/OS-specific functions, whereas FnLock ON meant that keystrokes would adjust volume/brightness/etc. In this keyboard, it's the reverse. This is annoying because the FnLock button now has a LED light as well. So, if one needs to refresh a page (F5) or rename a file (F2), one needs to have FnLock and its light on, thereby draining battery life faster. 2. The TrackPoint buttons are all completely horizontal and at the same elevation, so it's hard to know which one would be pressed without actually looking down. This keyboard's predecessor had pronounced differences in elevation between the left, middle, and right buttons. The middle button's bumps that were significant on this keyboard's predecessor are barely tactile, further compounding the issue. 3. The TrackPoint buttons have a very superficial depth compared to its predecessor. This makes them feel atrocious when depressing them, given the lack of tactile feedback. 4. The edges around the Left Ctrl, Escape, and Delete keys are more pronounced. This makes this keyboard feel less sleek compared to its predecessor. 5. The PgUp/PgDn keys are smaller and further separated from the left/right arrow keys as compared to its predecessor. 6. This keyboard weighs ~100 grams more than its predecessor. That's around 25% more. Hopefully the increased weight is accounted for with a bigger battery. Overall, based on the differences between this keyboard and its predecessor, I would hazard to say that this keyboard is not a very good choice for an IT professional in an office environment. However, it is perfect for a home theater PC (HTPC) setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love it! I absolutely love the trackpoint and the feel of the thinkpad keyboard! This gives you it to you on any device that supports a keyboard and mouse! Whether it's via bluetooth or the included dongle, you can connect and have a great keyboard! If you used the previous wired and bluetooth versions, this basically combines them, adds some improvements, and gives you a USB C port. One charger/cable to rule them all! The bluetooth works great and the wireless dongle basically gives you wired without the wire. I can only think of two improvements that could be done. 1. Blacklit functionality with the fn+space like my thinkpad laptop! I will be more than happy to have less battery life, especially with the usb c port for charging if it was backlit! 2. Would be nice if it could function over the usb c port though with the dongle being included, it's not that important...

I've used both the USB- and Bluetooth- only models before and I was super excited about this one. My gripe is about the trackpoint, specifically on Linux: it doesn't work the same as in the previous models. Horizontal scrolling does not work at all; and vertical scrolling works, but with the bizarre side-effect of a middle-button click. E.g., if your cursor happens to be on a link when you start scrolling, it will open the link in another tab; or if it's in a text box, it will paste text into it before scrolling away. So good luck scrolling on something like Google Docs... Again, the previous models worked perfectly, which makes it all the more irritating that this one doesn't. Overall, I'd still buy this keyboard knowing this, but this is just not the 5/5 product it could've very easily been.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with Mac ...Sort of. First, let me say that nowhere in the specs of this product does it say it works with Mac. Period. It’s Windows and Android. There are no Mac drivers. It was never designed to work with Macs or iPads. But I bit the bullet and having now tested it on both MacBook Pro (Catalina 10.15.4 and the 2020 iPad Pro, I can tell you that the TrackPoint Keyboard II (KC-1957) “sort of” works with both MacOS and iOS. DISCLAIMER: Have been using it for 24 hours. Will try to update after a week or so. If you’re a Mac user, here’s what you need to know before you decide to buy this: PROs: - I have the 2020 Apple Magic Keyboard Pro keyboard/case combo. The keys on this feel at least as satisfying as that or possibly better. - It is significantly lighter in weight than the 2020 Apple Magic Keyboard Pro keyboard/case combo - The classic red dot mouse on the keyboard does work on the iPad and MacOS for moving the cursor around - It’s $99 vs $349, so theoretically you could buy this plus a Zugu case for $69 and you’d still only be at $168 all in with a pretty decent setup - On the underside it has front extendable legs that provide for a bit of tilt/angled elevation, which is nice - The claimed battery life on a single charge is 2 months - It can be used - albeit partially (see Cons below) - with both the iPad and the MacOS, whilst the Magic Keyboard Pro can only be used with ipad. - I was able to connect to the 2020 iPad Pro via Bluetooth - I was able to connect to the 2018 MacBook Pro running Catalina using the included 2.6 GHz usb dongle CONs: - Bluetooth connecting to MacOS seems to not work. I’ll play with it a bit more to see, but am currently using the little nub USB dongle included with the keyboard, plugged into a USB-A port on a dock that plugs into a USB-C spot on the MacBook Pro. It’s certainly not as ideal or as smooth as say the Apple Bluetooth keyboard that one would normally use with the MBP driving an external monitor. - Not all of the keys will work and you are going to need to be happy with that if you want to buy it. Most do, with the exception of the Windows-specific ones. Just don’t buy this expecting all of the keys to function on an iPad or MacOS. - The only driver for this is Windows, so it’s not an issue of just installing the driver. You need to be comfortable that this thing was just not built for iOS or MacOS; BUT, the keys that 99% of folks will need for typing and writing do work: All letters, ALL CAPS, Backspace and Delete key, all the important symbols above the numbers work (~!@#$%^&*()_+). Arrow up/down, right/left work. PgUp, PgDn work in a browser for jumping up and down long pages. - CTRL+C, CTRL+X, CTRL+V do appear to function on iOS or MacOS but not with the CTRL key, with the Windows key to the right of it. It’s less of an issue on the iPad and iOS since you can use your finger. Hope this helps some MacOS and iPad users who are considering this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid keyboard. Good feel. Double connections. As always, Lenovo trackpoint keyboard provides one of the best typing experiences of any keyboard. The features that make it stand out for me is the sturdy build quality. It is very comfortable to type for long periods. Key travel is familiar thinkpad. The trackpoint makes it feel just like my old Thinkpad. Nice to have an option to use it and a mouse. You can connect it to two computers by connecting one using the provided RF receiver and one connection via bluetooth. You can switch between the two by sliding a switch on the back of the keyboard. That would be one thing I would change about the button layout. Would have been better to assign a hot key to switch computers. Reaching behind the back edge of the keyboard blindly is a bit awkward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good but not as good as the previous generation It's still a great keyboard if you like to keep your fingers on the home row (like I do.) In this review, I'm comparing it to the previous generation of this product. Upsides: This generation comes with a bluetooth USB "dongle." The previous generation did not. Downsides in order of increasing severity: 1. It is wireless only. In the previous generation, you could chose a wired version. 2. It is difficult on the new generation to know when your thumb is on the middle button. 3. This may be a driver issue but when you try to use the middle button to scroll, the middle button click event is sent. This is, for me, the biggest pain and the reason I've gone back to my wired keyboard from the previous generation. These issues are, for me, serious enough that I've gone back to my wired instance of the previous generation. Lenovo: please fix the middle mouse button issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Imperfect, but easily the best keyboard I've owned I love my ThinkPad laptop keyboard and TrackPoint mouse and wanted the same user experience while my laptop was docked. I also wanted a wireless keyboard, as my desk already has more than enough cables snaking around it. So I was thrilled to discover this detached version of the excellent ThinkPad keyboard, which has Bluetooth functionality. It's exactly what I was looking for and I'm mostly thrilled with it. I can think of only three drawbacks. One is that—as reviews elsewhere have attested—scrolling with the TrackPoint mouse is a bit cantankerous on Linux. Unless you're very exacting in how you lift your fingers off the mouse when you're done scrolling, the PC will register the middle-button press as paste-from-clipboard. As a result, when scrolling through a file it's quite easy to accidentally paste a bunch of text into the middle of your document without intending to. The ThinkPad's onboard Trackpoint isn't nearly so finicky. Second, unlike with the onboard ThinkPad keyboard, this one has no backlight, which means it's hard to use in the dark or with low light. Admittedly, there are fewer situations where I'd use the detached keyboard with the lights out than the laptop's integrated keyboard. Still, there have been situations where it would've been nice to have used this keyboard in low-light settings and I'm unable to do so without fat-fingering a lot of key combinations. Finally, I'd note that unlike the ThinkPad Bluetooth Laser Mouse, which takes AA batteries, this keyboard has an onboard battery that you charge with a USB cable. Each charge lasts for weeks; it's highly convenient. At the same time, I can't help but worry about what happens when the battery finally wears out. Given how great the product is in other respects, I'd like to keep it forever (or at least as long as the old PC keyboards from the 1990s that are still kicking around). But its life is almost certainly going to be constrained by the longevity of the onboard battery, which isn't user replaceable. To circle back to my original assessment, though, these are largely small foibles in a fantastic product. I wouldn't have bought it if I didn't already love the ThinkPad typing experience, and this product delivers on that promise in spades. If that's what you're looking for, too, you won't be disappointed. It's easily the best keyboard I've ever owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally... Love this product. I have been waiting for this keyboard and it fully meets my expectations. I currently use one of the Carbon X1 models, and I just could not get used to other Bluetooth keyboards. Now, alternating between the built-in keyboard and this keyboard cannot be more natural. The material seems to be slightly different from the built-in keyboard, but I got used to this very soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very convenient Keyboard and Mouse Combo This keyboard is a game changer. The trackpoint allows for one device to serve as keyboard and mouse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for max 2 devices, with its unique connection The keyboard can AT MOST connect to two devices. It is required that one connection goes through the USB receiver, and one goes through Bluetooth. Also, please note, the USB-C port is only for charging. Even with the cable shipped with the unit, when connected directly to the USB port through the cable, this keyboard stays with the previous connection mode, ether Bluetooth or USB receiver. Again, there is no such a thing as cabled-connection experience with this keyboard. Swift Pair does work, but may only help when pairing with new devices. It does have "side effects", as of **forgetting** the previously connected Bluetooth devices. This saves 1/2 of the hassle to pair a **new** keyboard to a new computer, skipping the scanning and choosing step. However, it is NOT meant for hosting simultaneous Bluetooth-pairing among a set of computers: the Bluetooth pairing, once done, can only stay with the most recently connected device. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The OG I like this keyboard. The track point is the primary selling point. For those who know, they know. It’s far more efficient to have the near instant ability to move the cursor with your index finger and click with your thumb, and be able to type - all without needing to move your hand to trackpad or a mouse. Is it as precise as a mouse for super fine tasks? Maybe not, but for productivity warriors who grew up using thinkpads, this is a fantastic Bluetooth option that should be useful for years to come.

Having a wireless dongle and Bluetooth at the same time is fancy but it is not available to pairing other devices with keyboard short key. so, I have to switch on and off between dongle/Bluetooth and PC/Android. The signature Fn key is annoying me until I get used to it. Also, It doesn't have a battery indicator. I can't know how much battery remains. If Lenovo provides the key mapping through software to swap the Fn key and Cntl key, It would be perfect. But this track point overcomes all of the negative points. Good device but a lot of lack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great overall bluetooth keyboard! The ThinkPad TrackPoint Keyboard II is a great new keyboard from Lenovo. Bluetooth pairs perfectly with any device, and it doesn't have the typing lag that the original Compact Keyboard was plagued with. There are a few quibbles that I have with this model, one of which will hopefully be fixed with a future firmware update. -First off, they reduced the room between the space bar and the mouse buttons, and added a little indent underneath the bottom row. In that sense I liked the original version better. You have to be conscious about not hitting the mouse buttons when you are hitting space. -As to what I referenced above, you cannot see the remaining battery life of the device in Windows 10. Very minor though and will hopefully be seen in a firmware update. Otherwise, a GREAT keyboard. Definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I miss the older thinkpad designs. The flat design of the Trackpoint buttons is horrible compared to the older designs and even my P1. Trying to click the middle scroll button I always hit the raised shell plastic between the button and the spacebar. The keyboard buttons feel good, but the layout is worse than the old 7 row thinkpad keyboards I loved like on T61p. Making the arrows keys smaller and jamming the page up/down keys in the lower right is too cramped for my accuracy. media control keys are an annoying omission too. The Bluetooth works fine. If I didn't love the Trackpoint I'd have bought another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great improvement over previous generation! Amazing keyboard! I owned the previous model but this is much greater improvement in terms of tactile experience. I love the way it feels and it is super easy to carry around. The use of the usb dongle and usb-c support are great additions too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fn & Ctrl keys should be swappable I like the keyboard except for one thing - unlike on the Thinkpad laptops, you cannot swap the Fn & Ctrl keys. This is a deal breaker for me because Ctrl+Shift is a frequent key combination for me and the default layout makes this very awkward and unusable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would Not Buy - Faulty Spacebar Spacebar just creates spaces without me touching the key. Contacted support less than a month after purchasing and was told they would get back to me in 48 hrs with a response. Still no response almost a week later and not sure if I will get a replacement and if I just wasted my money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well built, works well, but with compromises Background: I have been a ThinkPad user since 600E, and I have always loved the keyboards, even as ThinkPad as a whole moved on to Chiclets. While I mostly use mechanical keyboards these days, when I do need a wireless keyboard + mouse combo, I'm left with few choices, often ending up with those touchpad + rubber dome ones. They can be rather clumsy at times. When I got the word that the new wireless TrackPoint Keyboard released, I immediately placed my order. The unit is very well built and works well. It feels exactly the same as my company-issued ThinkPad P51 (with exceptions; see below). Heck, the styling reminds me of the T40-T61 era, complete with 45 degree chamfers and knurled slide switches --- a really nice touch. That said, here are some minor complaints. If resolved, this would truly be a perfect tool. 1. The TrackPoint buttons are quite awkward, featuring too short a travel and the position goes against my muscle memory of my (admittedly older) ThinkPads. Even the P51 has a better set. Please, no more of this flat TrackPoint button nonsense... Button travel is what sets ThinkPad apart from competition. 2. There is no easy way to change just the sensitivity of the TrackPoint (without changing the global mouse speed). On a 4k screen it takes so much effort just to move from one corner to another. 3. The Windows driver is garbage. I vaguely remember all the nice things UltraNav drivers used to allow you to change, including the sensitivity I just mentioned, click-the-cap, etc.. **More importantly, it DESTROYS the perfectly good out-of-the-box behavior for the middle-key: "click is middle click, hold is scroll".** Just don't install the driver... you will only uninstall it soon after. 4. Switching to bluetooth requires a convoluted dance of switch off, switch to bluetooth, switch on, switch to bluetooth pair. This involves two switches on two sides of the unit. Why can't this be all in one switch escapes me. Why can't I have a 4-position switch in an arrangement like USB-off-BT-PAIR(momentary), if there is no avoiding the "switch off" step.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wireless Keyboard with Trackpoint. Trackpoint is great for work areas without space for a mouse (e.g. from couch or bed. Bluetooth works with my Android phone, and the wireless USB dongle works with Windows 10. The build quality is less than what the cost suggests. USB port does not seem to be reinforced for long-term use as a wired keyboard. (A prior keyboard became unusable because the USB port could not maintain a tight connection.) The battery does not appear to be user-replaceable, which limits the keyboard's usable lifespan. Expect to receive it one month after ordering. Shipping from China took half a week. Expect the box to be opened by Customs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The build quality is so bad it broke in a year... But I am buying another one. When it works it is such a fantastic tool. But when I got it, it would creak every time I placed my hand on it (just left side). Within 1 month of getting it the left side foot had broken. Within 6 months, and with normal use it developed a deep crack on the top left side. No Impact other than dropped my phone on it from a height of about 2 inches that caught the corner a couple of times. I am hoping I got a lemon, I should have been more careful of that side since it had been creaking from day one. Oh well. I am going to "Not recommend" for now, I really dont want to drop the cash on a replacement but here I am. Even if the second one is fantastic this is going to be a not recommended from me cause QC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Mac Support. 2.4ghz dongle drops keypresses. No Mac Bluetooth support, 2.4Ghz dongle is prone to wifi interference and causes keyboard to drop keypresses when tying. Wired USB is charging only, can't be used as a direct connection to PC. No wrist wrest so keyboard can't be used in your lap comfortably. Skip this version and get the previous wired version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not worth the premium price that they are asking Typing on this keyboard is not enjoyable at all. If your going to offer a keyboard like this, and charging a premium. I would have put my best foot forward, this should have been the same keys that are used in the X1. These are not the same keys, as the X1. The spacing of the keys are completely off and uncomfortable. The function short cut keys for windows menus don't work. I am not sure if this means that this one is defective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! So good I bought TWO. Lacks NKRO though I've been waiting for this keyboard for years. Used ThinkPads forever, then I had the previous version of this keyboard, I tried out the Apple Keyboard and a couple mechanical keyboards. There's nothing that beats the old ThinkPad design! And it's wireless! It doesn't feel exactly like my old T-series, but it's close enough. This keyboard feels smooth to move between the keys, like playing a piano. And having a trackpoint again is a blessing, even working on a desktop. I've got one for my work computer and one for my personal. A word of caution - if you are a gamer or person who cares about "rollover" or "ghosting", this is not an n-key-rollover keyboard. I have tried mapping special key combinations using AutoHotKey and some of the keys don't work when you try to do key combos with 3+ keys. Not a huge issue for me because there are some keys that do, but it would be nice if Lenovo would make this board even better with NKRO.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good update with two caveats The build quality is very good. It is heavier and sturdier than the previous model. Having three ways of connecting to a PC Is great (wired, 2.4GHz, Bluetooth). You can even operate your iPhone. There are two caveats here. 1 Center button. The physical design has been changed. Hard to locate just by touching with fingers because all the three buttons are flat. Lenovo should definitely revert the design. 2 Leg design not improved. It is well known that the legs have design flaws which may lead to breakage due to stress concentration. So I don’t recommend this to hard typists.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the upgrade from the original. Key feel are an upgrade from the earlier version of this - which I used until getting this one. The TrackPoint is smoother too. Basically feels exactly like a ThinkPad laptop keyboard, where the old one didn't quite. Overall build quality is a bit nicer too, more solid. Same or better fantastic battery life, likely won't know for many more weeks or months. Upgrades include USB C charge connector, physical switch to toggle on/off, switch to select Windows/Android, switch to select Bluetooth/Dongle. As with the old one, I appreciate the small, wire free footprint, not needing a mouse, ease of connecting, several months battery life, quick charge, and the fact that it's the same feel and layout as my laptops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than I'd expected... a high bar. I'm thrilled with my TrackPoint Keyboard II! Lenovo continues the IBM legacy of producing keyboards that feel "just right," from the first time you use them... and this is no exception. I've used it with my all-in-one from across the room (connecting via the included USB dongle and it is seamless. Same when connecting via Bluetooth with my Samsung Galaxy S4 tablet.

Second is the trackpoint, the truly perfect way to navigate. The third is the keyboard itself. It's great. Two nits keep it from a five star rating. First, I hate that you have to charge it. Wish it had a battery you could just pop in. Second, the documentation, if you can call it that, in the box points you to a download to access features, but you cannot get to the download.

If it is possible on my Thinkpad laptop then it should be possible on this keyboard too. Next feature which I miss is a backlit of the buttons which is again present on my laptop keyboard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Keyboard I've Used It's been a week since I've had this keyboard and I really like it. It's much better than the first edition, feels like it's premium, the keys feel better to type on, and even the mouse keys feel better. I'm a software developer so I'm on this all day and the trackpoint keeps me on my keyboard. I really enjoyed the keyboard on my ThinkPad X1 Yoga (gen 1) which is what got me to buy this thing. You can set the keyboard up to be on Bluetooth for one PC and have dongle on another, and you just flip the switch. It feels solid and has a nice weight (I have the gen1 wired version which felt hollow and bendy). I personally prefer this over mechanical keyboards for programming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice! -Setup was a bit frustrating. Make sure you don’t turn Bluetooth off on your computer once the keyboard is connected or you’ll have to use an alternate keyboard/mouse. -Bluetooth connection about 8 feet away from PC, although not line of sight, resulted in constant missed keystrokes. I moved the switch to 2.4 ghz and everything has been perfect, but I still don’t understand which hardware in my PC is accepting that signal. -I’d like to be able to turn my PC on with the keyboard but that doesn’t seem possible. -It feels substantial and that’s a good thing. Reasonably heavy. -I don’t like that the center mouse button isn’t raised (although it’s slightly textured at the top), so my finger often drifts to the right. -The key travel seems way shallower than any of the dozen ThinkPads I’ve owned over the years (Last one was a T43). That said, it’s infinitely better than the Dell wireless keyboard that came with my computer. -I replaced the Trackpoint cap with my favorite, the Soft Rim. I’m very pleased overall with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what we were hoping for. I bought this keyboard for my wife to use with a laptop stand. The purpose was to raise the height of her laptop display. Her typing position using the laptop on the kitchen table was causing neck and shoulder pain due to the "hunched over" typing position. Looking at the laptop screen through bifocals only made things worse. This Keyboard II is wireless, light weight and very convenient to place and use. It is laid out exactly the same as her Lenovo laptop keyboard, so nothing new to get used to. Very happy with the quality, keyboard touch, etc. Would buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE GOAT WIRELESS KEYBOARD One of the most satisfying keyboards to type on. When I found out that Lenovo had made their famous keyboard a wireless accessory, I bought one immediately. The built-in TrackPoint mouse also adds another huge layer of functionality to this already wonderful keyboard. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a wireless keyboard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This keyboard is everything I hoped for it to be! After trying out and returning many wireless keyboards, I finally found a sturdy yet highly portable keyboard. This is perfect for people like me who don't need a number keypad or touchpad taking up space like most other options in the market come with. It also has fantastic battery life, and I can effortlessly toggle between my newer ThinkPad running Windows and very old Macbook Pro. I'm 6 months into having it and still find it an amazing value and product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great potential, falls short on the details. They keyboard and Trackpoint feel great. The keyboard is much noisier than my Thinkpad laptop's (x260). One of the feet broke with very little pressure put on it. I have not been able to get the middle button scrolling to work as expected. No side to side scrolling, both the press and the release are considered a click so often when I am trying to scroll it opens websites or copies text.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product is extremely unreliable cannot aprove. The Keyboard would be OK (Not great, it will never measure up to 41A5091 which was great) but it would be usable ACCEPT for the fact that the USB connector used is junk. When discussing this keyboard you cannot use the phrase "If the USB connector fails throw out the keyboard.", you must use the phrase "WHEN the USB connector fails throw out the key board", it is absolutely rock solid sure the connector will fail and it will do it fast, because the USB connector is junk and not at all up to the task of maintaining a reliable connection. The connector will fail, it will fail after very little use, because of this the keyboard is trash within a very short time of deployment. I am shocked that a company of Lenovo's stature would have such a poorly designed product. I am also saddened that this poor example is the last TrakPoint keyboard in production. I like TrackPoint (A lot) I wish somebody would make a useful keyboard. Thank You Nick

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ThinkPad TrackPoint Keyboard II Review I have been a big fan of Thinkpad since 2015, I found that typing on my laptop was far more comfortable than my desktop; so when I saw that I can buy identical keyboard for my desktop, I was thrilled. This keyboard looks and feels the same as a Thinkpad X1 Extreme (Gen 1), size and all. The keyboard has a low profile, so your wrist sit comfortably on your desk, not propped up at a angle. The TrackPoint is a very useful as well. I am currently enrolled in online school and do a lot of typing, so I very much appreciate the comfort level this keyboard offers. If Lenovo could improve two things on this product, I would say they should add a fingerprint reader and a back-light for added convenience. Overall, I was very pleased with my purchases and would recommend this product to anyone else who enjoys their Thinkpad typing experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for multiple devices The improved design uses a sturdier usbc port for charging, and it switches between usb and bluetooth very smoothly. I have this paired with a macbook pro (usb as well as an ipad (bluetooth) and couldn’t be happier with the setup. The trackpoint works in iOS! While not as smooth as a magic trackpad, it does a good job with navigation and basic point and click. The only challenge I had was with the usb dongle and lag. It seems to interfere with other signals based on its location and proximity. After buying a usb extension cable and placing the dongle closer to the keyboard, there is no longer any perceivable lag. Overall, a perfect device for my needs. Would be even better with backlight or the older style keyboard, but very happy with the current iteration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ThinkPad TrackPoint Keyboard II Really nice keyboard. No setup issues, great key feel and the trackpoint works flawlessly. Anyone remember how the older trackpoints drifted away if you held contact for too long? My x60s, which was at the IBM/Lenovo transition, does this pretty badly. This trackpoint doesn't do it at all. I don't know how or when Lenovo achieved this upgrade but they deserve solid credit for it. I would have given this keyboard five stars (and maybe should have) except I don't think the flatter click and scroll keys are an improvement. I wouldn't say it's hard to use them- it's just not as effortless. Make it four and a half stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trackpoints for all! I got this keyboard because I was having ergonomics issues with my work computer setup and I love using the trackpoint on my home Thinkpad. It’s a possible ergonomic alternative like trackballs and tilted mice to using regular mice. The low profile design allows it to be propped up in a wrist rest to angle the keyboard negatively and using the trackpoint seems to relieve pressure on my wrist. Too early to say yet, but I think this will solve my wrist pain issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best keyboard I've ever used I love the thinkpad laptops because of the great keyboard, to me it's the best out there, and wanted to have same quality for a wireless keyboard. The trackpoint keyboard II didn't disappoint, it gives you the same typing experience, very comfortable, thin and sleek, and the keys are soft on click. I would say 99% similar to the laptop keyboard. This is the wireless keyboard to get, if you're a fan of the thinkpad laptop keyboard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would be the perfect companion...BUT This keyboard would be the perfect solution for me IF one could swap the Fn & CTRL buttons like you can on any ThinkPad in recent history. You cannot so it does not function like a standard desktop keyboard. I was able to confirm in the forums that Lenovo has no intention of adding this functionality with a firmware update. It appears to be possible on the older wired version, but is still an unsupported "hack". Really bummed. Switching between desktops and roaming with different keyboard layouts is a deal breaker for me. Hope this helps someone.

I also have, due to an accident, limited movement on my arms and wrists and this design allows me to have my wrists simply rest and there is no need for me to move my arms when using the mouse. I personally enjoy the typing experience. I do believe that for the price they should be backlit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Familiar Feel I bought this for the docking station, so I can plug in either my personal or work laptop (a Thinkpad E15 and a Thinkpad P15) and use the same keyboard. Very similar, but not an exact match. But, still makes it very easy to move between the devices when all of the keyboards have an identical layout and a similar feel. And I'm so used to using the Trackpoint, that this is really the only option for me. My biggest complaint is they don't make a similar keyboard with the 9-digit keypad on the right, so I have to use another accessory.

I also like the feature that allows you to switch between Bluetooth and dongle connections. It also includes a feature to switch between android and pc configuration for the keyboard. I decided to purchase this keyboard because I enjoy using the TrackPoint and I wanted to have a Bluetooth keyboard that came with an integrated pointing device. I have been using this keyboard with my desktop computer mainly to do work and stream video. If I could only ask for one more thing it would be a backlight to this keyboard. It doesn’t contain it, but all in all it’s a great device! The key travel is excellent, the battery life is excellent and I am really happy with this purchase! I highly recommend this keyboard since it has many good features including the trackpoint as a solid mouse replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too different from the laptop keyboards I bought this because I liked my built-in Lenevo ThinkPad keyboard, however, this model is made out of a different, cheaper feeling plastic and doesn't have the same luxurious soft key feel as the built-in laptop keyboards. Also, my biggest problem with this keyboard is there is a large speed bump in front of the keys (not present on the laptop version) which inhibits my thumb when pressing the space bar and slows down my typing speed considerably. I don't like that the keys are surrounded by a "picture frame." I was disappointed with my purchase and no longer use the keyboard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ThinkPad Wireless Keyboard Great legendary ThinkPad keyboard feel and layout in a small compact form, plus it's wireless. It's perfect for ThinkPads that will be docked at a desk if you want to close the lid so you will still have access to the same keys (i.e. function and volume keys). The response is not quite exactly like the old IBM ThinkPads (like my older clunky W or T models) but I still prefer it over most laptops especially the thin feeling of Macbooks. Though I wish they would bring back the touchpad versions which would be very convenient for the occasional couch surfing. The last remark I would say is that I turn it off when I'm not using it and am still on my first charge! It's been a few months of light to medium use.

I feel that this product is rather expensive, but it was worth it because it meets my needs. I actually don't use the TrackPoint on my X1 Carbon - I use the Track Pad instead. But when using the keyboard with the external monitor, the TrackPoint is a great alternative to the mouse. I really love it. The battery life is wonderful, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have! I forced myself to use TrackPoint on my laptop now it feels awkward not having it on my desktop. Problem solved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ThinkPad TrackPoint Keyboard II (US English) I purchased this so that I could place my laptop on a stand making it more at eye level. I find this keyboard to be just the right size, small legs on the bottom raise it up to the correct wrist height for me and the keys are just as responsive as the original laptop keys. I have been using the keyboard now for 3 weeks only charged it when I first received it and took it out of the package and as of right now it still is at 99% charge and I work 9 hours a day - 5 days a week. I highly recommend this keyboard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trackpoint keyboard can be improved!!! Good keyboard, works well but trackpoint red stick doesn't work as smoothly as a standalone mouse, and there's no backlight to the keyboard

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mushy, inferior to older versions This keyboard is dramatically inferior to my KU-1255 "ThinkPad Compact USB Keyboard with TrackPoint". The keys and the trackpoint buttons are very mushy. Not at all crisp like the older versions. The ledge at the bottom is higher, too—when I press the space bar, my thumb pushes against the trackpoint buttons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Product, just not for iPadOS The product itself is pretty good quality honestly. Plastics have a nice texture to them without making it feel cheap, and there is enough heft to make it feel solid but not heavy to take away from portability. Where it falls short is the iPadOS use. Scrolling “works” but difficult to use with how iPadOS interprets the middle click. It is also very sensitive with the trackpoint which is something users usually have to adapt to when first using a trackpoint. Typing experience is pleasant, solid feel for a membrane keyboard, with great travel, while maintaining a flat profile. I really wanted to like this product for my uses. Another improvement Lenovo should consider with the next iteration is a tablet/phone tray extension so your device doens’t require it’s own stand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lovely typing experience What you see is what you get! Love this keyboard. Love the form factor, the feel of the keystrokes and most importantly the track point. I am using it with a Mac and it worked flawlessly out of the box. I'd highly recommend it. Icing on the cake was that it arrived a day earlier than scheduled. Even as a fan of mechanical keyboard, I can't help but love this keyboard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for those who need the red Thinkpad nub! The perfect solution for anyone who can't live without the red Thinkpad nub. The battery lasts weeks and the wireless connection hasn't caused any meetings to get dropped or duplicates, it works just like a real keyboard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wireless Trackpoint I like it, but I kind of wish it had more a rest for my wrists. I guess I am used to the keyboard on my laptop, but it's a nice keyboard. Keys feel great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great keyboard for lenovo laptop users I love the trackpoint keyboard because I don't have to have a mouse on my desk. Gives me the same comfortable setup as on my laptop. It also works well with my android phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Keyboard for Limited Space Work Area This is the only keyboard I use with my Lenovo desktop PCs. They are a real space saver, work great, no cord clutter, and always provide mouse functionality with the TrackPoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow disappointed. Keys feel cheap and not like the Lenovo laptop. The buttons for the pointer are designed terribly. They are flat and less easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Familiar ThinkPad feel You get that familiar ThinkPad feel including the placement of the Fn key. Loved the TrackPoint, but the middle button defaults to a toggle which might be a surprise to long-time users.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the extra money Love it. Great tactile feedback from keys. Very small footprint. Thought the trackpoint mouse control might be a rough adjustment, but not so. Overall, seems to be a high quality product, and I recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from UHF leaves a lot to be desired. The bluetooth reception is acceptable. But the UHF mode with the dongle causes repeated keystrokes and leaves a lot to be desired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classical Lenovo Touch This keyboard has the classical touch/feel/sound as the traditional Lenovo quality. While the included TrackPoint is a nice feature it does require the keyboard to be slightly wider to accommodate the additional necessary keys, a very small issue for me. Love it!
