Lenovo just officially unveiled the ThinkPad 25 Anniversary Edition which is a throwback in time for ThinkPad fans (like ourselves!). You might want to prepare your wallet because this exclusive, sexy machine won't come cheap. The ThinkPad 25 Anniversary Edition is a merge between the nostalgic and classic ThinkPad design and modern features combined with powerful specifications. One thing is for sure; if you buy this device, hipsters at Starbucks will ask you why you're using a device from 2004.
But that's a good thing. If you don't want that to happen, you're clearly not the target audience for this laptop. True ThinkPad diehards will easily appreciate the design for the exact reason that it looks old.
The keyboard is backlit, as opposed to the real old devices from IBM, the device is pretty thin in comparison and on the inside, Lenovo says to expect an Intel Core i7-7500U processor and discrete NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics. That's in addition to a touch-enabled 14-inch FHD display. Port options include an SD card slot, HDMI, Ethernet, and USB 3.0. Thankfully, no Pentium 2 Mobile inside.
Lenovo says the laptop will be available in select countries starting at $1,899, which may be a little (read as very) hard to swallow, but if you can sacrifice your wallets mental health for this nostalgic beauty, you may soon be able to.
