My Pinebook Pro after a month of use.

Yeah, I should have left it on.  The buttons are also pretty bad.  I wonder if a plastic screen protector for a phone would stick to it w/o needing adhesive and messing with sensitivity.

I never had a Thinkpad but those nipple joystick things are neat and another way to not leave home row.  I imagine getting good with it is similar to home row mouse controls on high-end keyboards.  I tend to under and overshoot a lot but it's more comfortable than constantly moving back and forth to a trackpad for simple 2-second mouse controls you might want to interact with a GUI.

I'm probably just spoiled with luxury Apple computers w/ their buttery-smooth glass trackpads w/ "Taptic Engine" tofu burger fake clicks.
