Happy 25th Birthday, ThinkPad

The Lenovo/IBM ThinkPad is celebrating its 25th Birthday.

Few, if any, Windows PCs are iconic and  recognizable as the ThinkPad. Originally released by IBM in 1992, its boxy black design became an instant hit.

Great original 1992 ad – more jewels here

Its design and features has a legion of fans all over the world. It was also my first Laptop ever – in 2003 -, a hand-me-down from my Father when his company upgraded what had been also his first laptop.

Lenovo has launched a great looking 25th Anniversary edition (including a sorely missed seven-row keyboard layout) to celebrate the birthday

Happy 25th Birthday, ThinkPad. Forever young.
