This is the ThinkPad at 25!
October 19, 2017

Love that retro look

It’s the ultimate productivity workhorse, with a spate of functions that many brand only now carry [we’re looking that side, Cupertino]. My personal choice of a computing device, time and again, its mix of power and battery life have amazed.

Yamato Labs in Japan was where the first edition of the ThinkPad came to light, inspired by the traditional Japanese bento box. Aptly enough, the ThinkPad Anniversary Edition 25 was announced at the same venue. And the end result is a classic mix of heavy specs and iconic retro features like backlit 7-row ThinkPad Classic keyboards, multiple status LEDs and that multicolor logo.

We first saw a concept of the design back in June 2015, when a teaser was let out on social media.

Powered by an Intel Core i7-7500U processor with discrete NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics and a 14” full HD display with touch, the ThinkPad 25 is very well connected as well. It has a USB-C port (Thunderbolt 3), three regular USB ports, an SD card reader, HDMI port and Ethernet connectivity.

Pricing on the ThinkPad Anniversary Edition 25 starts at $1,899.
