With my external mouse unplugged, the above command gives me nothing:

$ sudo lshw -c input
$

 
Same for 'xinput' while X is up.

$ xinput
⎡ Virtual core pointer                        id=2    [master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                  id=4    [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ xwayland-pointer:13                         id=6    [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ xwayland-relative-pointer:13                id=7    [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                       id=3    [master keyboard (2)]
