Can anyone identify the model number and any other information (year released) for this IBM brand Personal System /2 trackball? The black one, middle row, second from the right? Thanks. Can't find it anywhere but this picture.

I remember seeing those attached to laptops. With a quick search including the terms IBM laptop trackball finds no more useful information, but a better picture: https://68.media.tum...1sjgndq_540.png

Okay. Probably not IBM OEM, just some promotional item. I read on a history of trackballs webpage that IBM's only OEM trackball was the convertible mouse/trackball from ~1992, but saw this with the IBM logo.
