Lenovo announces a limited edition throwback but modernized ThinkPad laptop
Remember that super-sturdy IBM ThinkPad Laptops that become a design icon on its days? Well, it’s there, already that long before the time I existed on Earth (October 5, 1992, to be exact).
They might look ugly in terms of modern design – but they’re iconic and durable, considering build quality and ruggedness. It was also notable due to its TrackPoint pointing device (the red one which acts as a mouse pointer in alternative or a replacement of the trackpad).
Now, Lenovo wants to take you back to yesterday upon releasing a commemorative edition of their ThinkPads – meet the Lenovo ThinkPad Anniversary Edition 25.
ThinkPad being modernized
The ThinkPad Anniversary Edition 25 features the signature ThinkPad design, along with its iconic features such as a backlit 7-row ThinkPad Classic keyboard, dedicated volume buttons, multiple status LEDs and of course, the multicolor ThinkPad logo (I thought this was RGB, then).
Being modernized in terms of specs, the new ThinkPad is powered by an Intel Core i7-7500U processor, a 14-inch Full HD touch display with NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics – a decent specs for work and productivity-minded users (just like its target demographics).
It doesn’t come cheap, though
As a limited edition, the ThinkPad Anniversary Edition 25 is available in limited quantities at Lenovo.com and through other partners in select countries for $1899 (~PhP96k). No word if there’s a possibility of this coming here on the country or whatever.
