The Lenovo Anniversary ThinkPad is official and it’s gorgeous

Today marks 25 years since IBM first announced the iconic ThinkPad laptop so, to celebrate, the brand’s modern day custodian Lenovo has outed a sumptuous anniversary edition.

The Lenovo ThinkPad Anniversary Edition 25 is inspired by the design of the original, right down to the signature red TrackPoint in the centre of the keyboard.

Debuting a “modern incarnation of a classic design,” the edition features the 7-row keyboard, dedicated volume buttons, multiple status LEDs and a multicolor logo.

The design ties in perfectly with the leaked images posted by WinFuture a couple of weeks ago.

However, you’ll be pleased to know the design is where the similarities with the 1992 model end.

There’s an Intel Core i7-7500U processor, NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics, along with a 14-inch full HD touchreen display.

Limited edition, high price

Lenovo says the limited edition laptop will be available in select countries (without revealing which).

It’ll be priced at $1,899 in the United States, which is around £1,450 at today’s exchange rage.

The ThinkPad 700C was first unveiled on October 5 1992, with a design inspired by a Japanese bento box.

Since then it has sold over 130 million units. They were designed and developed by IBM until Lenovo bought the rights to the brand in 2005.
