A special versioned Thinkpad which reminisces the original ThinkPad first launched 25 years ago.

Its 25 years since the first ThinkPad came out and Lenovo has made a decision to celebrate the occasion with an anniversary special ThinkPad 25.

The ThinkPad 25 won't come in cheap and its now available at Lenovo's online store for USD$1,899 (roughly RM8040) in limited quantities only. In the space of a couple of months, it won more than 300 awards and became a status symbol.

ThinkPad has sold more than 100 Million ever since it was introduced in the 1992. The company has now unveiled the ThinkPad 25, a classic reimagining of the original ThinkPad from 1992, and it's going to cost you a lot. "It balances sophisticated aesthetics, thoughtfully crafted user experiences and renowned engineering in order to deliver superior products", says David Hill, former chief design officer at Lenovo.

An MOU was also signed with LITASCO, the Swiss-based worldwide and marketing arm of Lukoil, one of Russia's largest oil companies. Among the elements of the MoU are LNG trade, LNG value chain and exploration / development as well as product storing.


We usually stay clear of calling a device "iconic" but the Thinkpad has very much earned that title over the years. Business, education, healthcare, supply chain, transportation and finance are just a few segments that have been transformed by mobile computing over the past twenty-five years. The ThinkPad logo seems to be an amalgamation of the old and the new. "As long as there are customer pain points, there will be a ThinkPad to fix them", Lenovo president Gianfranco Lanci said.

Naturally, Windows 3.1 has been replaced by Windows 10, and the 486 processor is now a seventh-generation Core i7.

$1899 is a high price for the specifications, especially compared to other machines in Lenovo's lineup like the T470, but this seems like it will be a low-volume special edition SKU produced for the most dedicated ThinkPad fans.
