Why would I want to do that? I can use the third mouse button to do that,

Mouse != Trackpoint

If you want to be ignorant of superior pointing devices, you can make that choice. Don't call other people dumb just because you prefer an inferior and less productive way to move your cursor.

Me on my trackpad can run circles around anyone on their trackpoint.

Can you explain this more, or point me to a resource that explains the whole Space+Enter thing? I just did a Google search and didn't turn anything up. You're saying that pressing Space+Enter on a Chromebook is hard-wired to do bad things?

I don't have one — and am not likely ever to buy one — but my curiosity is now piqued.

I've never had a touchpad that doesn't suck

Apparently, then, you have never used a Mac laptop.

Touchpads are for fat people.

Trackpoints are for dumb people. You can't even do the most basic operation (two-finger scrolling) using a trackpoint. The only thing you can do with a trackpoint is point. That's it. That's dumb. Enjoy the dumbness, though, if that's your preference.
