Lenovo’s anniversary ThinkPad marries retro design and modern tech

Swapna Krishna

Today is the Lenovo ThinkPad's 25th birthday, and the computer company is doing something special to celebrate. They're releasing a limited-edition anniversary version of the laptop called (creatively) the ThinkPad Anniversary Edition 25, which is inspired by the design of the first ThinkPad. We first discussed this familiar looking computer a few weeks ago, when WinFuture reported on the retro look.

The styling may be retro, with a blue "Enter" key and multicolor logo, but the hardware and features are definitely modern. It sports an Intel Core i7-7500U processor with a discrete graphics card, the NVIDIA GeForce 940MX, a seven-row backlit keyboard and a 14-inch HD touch screen display. While there are no further specs in the release, the initial leak reported 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD hard drive, a Thunderbolt-rated USB-C port, three regular USB ports, an SD card slot, an Ethernet port and an HDMI port.

The laptop will be available in limited numbers, and only in select countries -- Lenovo hasn't yet specified which ones. You can also order one of these laptops on their website Lenovo.com and through business partners. It retails for $1,899.
