Types of caps
Three different types of TrackPoint pointing stick caps are available to suit varying preferences for comfort, accuracy, and ease of use. Depending on when the model was released, some ThinkPad systems are shipped with all three cap types:

Note: Click the images for a larger view.
Classic Dome 450,300 Classic Dome: The Classic Dome cap is for users who prefer the touch and feel of the cap traditionally associated with the TrackPoint.
Soft Dome Soft Dome: With a large, convex surface area and soft texturing, the Soft Dome cap provides a soft touch and feel.
Soft Rim Soft Rim: The large, concave design of the Soft Rim cap provides a completely different touch and feel and creates a mechanical advantage whereby less force is required for pointer motion.

Systems supported
All three cap types are compatible with the following ThinkPad systems and accessories:
  • ThinkPad A-series
  • ThinkPad G-series
  • ThinkPad R-series
  • ThinkPad T-series
  • ThinkPad X-series
  • ThinkPad Z-Series
