Hey, my X220 had three perfectly button-y trackpad buttons above the
touchpad.  And so does my X390.  There were no physical buttons at the
bottom of the touchpad, hence "clickpad".

(I don't know if there are any models where the trackpad buttons are
also subsumed into the touchpad as click areas.  Safest to look at the
pictures before buying.)

I loved my X220 and stuck with it for a long time.  Before that I had a
T61, which was okay but rather large and ugly-ish.  I jumped from the T
series to the X series because both grew a bit -- before that I didn't
like X40/X60 having a slightly narrower keyboard, making my fingers miss
the right keys when I had to use a coworker's machine while

I also like my current X390, but it has some downsides: non-upgradeable
RAM, no easily-replaceable SDD/HDD tray, and they keep messing with
keyboard layouts so now I take screenshots all the time by accident.
Who thought it was a good idea to place the PrintScreen key between
AltGr and the right Ctrl???

Java has a huge standard library, and Python's standard library is either even
larger or much smaller, depending upon whether you are talking about
functionality, or lines of code. ;-)
