The ScrollPoint does not light up for these ones. Therefore it may be possible to replace the existing red LED with an infrared one. From what I can gather the slate blue ScrollPoints came out first and the metallic black ones came out after with some changes. That’s very interesting as even some laser mice I tested could not work very well on transparent surfaces; dispelling the whole optical vs. Fixing the divot on the button plastic. It should be possible to dump the ROM and modify it to add more features and tweaking to how windows should respond to the ScrollPoint ideally more behaved like the TrackPoint scrolling. I will at some point try swapping the ICs to determine which one is responsible for the behaviour change.

The second and final version of the standard three-button ScrollPoint mice were announced in Fixing the divot on the button plastic.
David Hill the industrial designer of the mouse remarked: If you’re moderately gentle the original porous texture underneath the rubber will be preserved. Here’s a comparison between an earlier sage SP Pro with the later revision where they corrected this with an updated injection mold, you’ll see how the older revision has both of the buttons veering to the right causing an uneven gap and this isn’t just the photo angle: If you have different coloured ScrollPoints, you can mix and match button colours.

The first version of the standard three-button ScrollPoint mice were announced in around Green probably looks the worst as it changes the cap to look an almost grey-like colour.
If your ScrollPoint isn’t new and has a damaged rubber coating, just use a magic eraser mo09vo gently remove the rubber or let the plastic soak in water and soap for a mo09ho hours and rub it off with a coarse cloth.
These are probably the harder Mousf Pros to find, but also some of the ml09bo desirable due to their DPI ball mechanism. For some reason only the ivory version has the IBM logo printed up near the top of the mouse instead near the bottom like the other ones, AND later black ones used a silver logo. Despite IBM’s original Almaden page proclaiming “After a few days with the ScrollPoint, you’ll find you can’t go back” most people still prefer wheels.
B for faster cursor response. It’s also possible to replace the 5mm red optical sensing LED to blue. It can only be obtained used or NOS at this point going forward.
Fixing the divot on the button plastic After in extensive use the microswitch will cut the plastic of either left mo09bk right clickable buttons and the thumb button if you use that frequently. I will at some point try swapping the ICs to determine which one is responsible for the behaviour change.
You will lose the ability to track transparent surfaces however presently looking into how to get the ‘best’ of both.
Speed is controlled based on the pressure applied for continuous-dynamic scrolling; this reduces the strain on the finger caused by standard scroll wheels and also allows the user to adjust the speed on a variable basis not fixed to a set interval mose any given time.
They are considerably lighter than the ScrollPoint II Pro mice lacking the heavy rubberized ball bearing.
Be careful not to cut too deep and slice away the plastic. Make sure there is no excess glue to make the buttons taller in height than they were originally: A withswap the PCB with a metallic black rev.
Upon removing the top bezel, the buttons are actually detachable from the bezel. No mechanical ball to get dusty, dirty or stolen. When you’re replacing the ScrollPoint LED, ensure the replacement has sufficiently long leads to go inside the spacer. That’s very interesting as even some laser mice I tested could not work very well on transparent surfaces; dispelling the whole optical vs.
Flashing the controller will require desoldering the Cyprus microcontroller and adding a socket; relatively easy if you have soldering equipment. These mice are no longer manufactured as previously mentioned to be fair, 9 years is a rather long manufacturing period for a computer peripheral.
A few reasons may be that 1 most people don’t like change, 2 the Mo09ho performs too fast without drivers, 3 IBM didn’t push marketing m0o9bo continue to really develop the product into the mainstream. They were paired with the earlier IBM wireless keyboard.
Internet surfers using this contoured mouse will enjoy increased comfortable and pressure-sensitive scrolling in any direction. Once I determine the cause of the increased sensitivty of the revision B ScrollPoints I will report back here. If you’re going to use a Lenovo board, be warned that some people have reported premature failure with them– most likely due to cold solder joints or prematurely failed capacitors.
