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.

Fun fact: research suggests that touchpads are faster than Trackpoint ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pointing_stick#Ergonomics )

So why so many Trackpoint users swear by it? Personally, I suspect it's an effect similar to https://9p.io/wiki/plan9/mouse_vs._keyboard/index.html - Trackpoint feels faster because it's more cognitivelly loading / obscures the passage of time.
