Lenovo released this video showcasing the latest (second) version of their much loved Bluetooth Trackpoint Keyboard. I own the first version and let me tell you: Typing on the keyboard is pure joy.

Lenovo, if you release a model with the numpad included, I will gladly buy it for SGD$219. I can only part with that much for a wireless keyboard. Please make it happen!
