the mouse button and PWM

I really loathe those mouse buttons that are annoyingly placed in the keyboards and are made bright red to be even more annoying. The fact that anyone choose to use them surprises me greatly.
As for the IPS machine... Does the backlighting use PWM? PWM flicker is an issue with most laptops, and it's high time for manufacturers to start disclosing whether or not they use it, given the fact that LED PWM flicker is much more straining than CCFL flicker, in general.

The TrackPoint is left in for nostaltia reasons from the beloved IBM days.
