Lenovo Just Unveiled Retro ThinkPad For 25th Anniversary
There are icons that we all know in the world of Computers and the Internet. They are unique pieces that we get used to seeing and that we immediately associate quality.
ThinkPad is one such device and Lenovo has now launched a limited edition model to celebrate 25 years of design and innovation engineering.
The ThinkPad Anniversary Edition 25 is a modern reinvention of classic design and includes retro features like the 7-line lighted ThinkPad Classic keyboard, volume-specific keys, multiple LED outputs, and the multi-color logo.
The design concept was launched on June 25, 2015, using social networking as a way to receive feedback and the preferences of those who love the ThinkPad, all over the world.
In addition to the classic features, the ThinkPad Anniversary Edition 25 is a very modern notebook with an Intel Core i7-7500U processor, a NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics card and a full-size 14-inch touchscreen. The performance of this “Retro” ThinkPad is, of course, completely different from the original 700C.
The origin of ThinkPad 25 years ago
Designed by Richard Sapper, engineered by Yamato Labs in Japan, the original ThinkPad 700C was announced on October 5, 1992. Inspired by Japanese food crates, the 700C was the start of a successful trip with more than 300 awards in the space of a few months and becoming a status symbol for corporate CEOs and CEOs.
130 million units sold later, the ThinkPad is an icon in the IT industry. It has already helped explorers reach the remotest places on Earth, supported dozens of space missions, and contributed to the growth of countless businesses. Over the years many have been the stories in which the ThinkPad has changed the world.
What the future holds for ThinkPad
As technology has advanced, designers and engineers behind ThinkPad have remained focused on reinventing mobile computing while preserving the original concept.
From the ThinkPad 701C, with the “butterfly” keyboard, to the convertible 2-in-1 X1 Yoga, with the keyboard “up and down,” the incessant quest for perfection made ThinkPad the number one notebook in the business market.
The next 25 years will show a ThinkPad that will continue to develop, innovate and secure the technologies of tomorrow while maintaining all the aura of robustness and reliability that has accustomed us.
