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.

Here's a quick overview with some pictures:

The point is that you can do a hell of a lot more with a modern thinkpad, than with an old one. And the software has to do a hell of a lot more things than during windows 3 times. There's a lot of stuff going behind the scenes in the SW/HW combinations of modern systems to enable use cases that were a pipe dream 25 years ago.
