IBM What laptop is the most loved, and maybe the most famous laptop in the world? Which laptop went into space? Which laptop won over 300 design awards? I'm sure many of you will be thinking of something made by Apple, but the truth of the matter is that we're talking about something else: IBM's ThinkPad. You might wonder, where does that name come from?

I believe the reason you see so many ThinkPads is not because of popularity but pure Darwinism. They are probably the only common notebooks that are not damaged by dropping coffee or cola in them. Apple's dies in dusins, but are also sold in large numbers. ThinkPads sales are small (at least post IBM), but they live forever.
