IBM’s first ThinkPad debuted exactly 25 years ago today, with a bright red TrackPoint nub and a classic design that still exists in a modern form. Lenovo, the company that bought ThinkPad from IBM, is celebrating the laptop’s 25th anniversary today with a special anniversary edition of the ThinkPad. Even if every ThinkPad looks retro, this is a particularly retro version of the ThinkPad design based on the current ThinkPad T470 model.
I’ve long said that if I were to switch to Windows, I’d run it on a Thinkpad. If I was buying a PC laptop today, it would be this one.
You can pick one up for $1,899 from Lenovo.
