A couple years ago, Lenovo announced its plans to build a "retro" ThinkPad that would resurrect design elements of ThinkPads past as an homage to the brand's long history.

That ThinkPad is now real. Check out the ThinkPad 25, sold to commemorate 25 years of ThinkPads.

I'm just going to leave this here for you lovely ThinkPad people. This isn't for me, but I'm not here to ruin your party.

Do clean up after yourselves.

No, the main problem is, today regular consumer computer systems are no more responsive, does not feel any faster than the ones from 20 years ago. In many cases they feel even more sluggish due to insane amount of layering, abstraction and bloat. Because "javascript generation". And apparently we now need applications that pretend to be (for example) a simple dd tool, or a simple messaging app, but are actually a full-blown browser under the hood.
