It's looking the same as 1995.

Why isn't it trying to be beautiful? Having style is not all about attracting the other sex you know.

Let me assure you, the Thinkpad is ugly. It might look "not ugly" to some, but nowawadays non-geeks use computers as well.

Sounds harsh, but it's the truth. Have you seen all the inconsistencies on the outer shell of these laptops? It has bumps all over, stuff pointing out. I mean, there are plenty of alternatives that have the same specifications and look much better.

Also, did you ever actually use a Thinkpad? Even today, the Lenovo laptops are so loaded to the brink with crap that it is almost not useable. It takes 30 minutes to remove all the unnecessary software that's on there.

These laptops just seem to appeal to businesses that signed a deal with IBM 10 years ago and are scared to death of change.
