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.

The Toughbook series by Panasonic was great for ruggedness and versatility too, though there was a rash of flaky hardware in the mid 2000s. They had a couple of "thin and light" models that were durable without being too bulky or ugly. I had one in 2003 that was well ahead of its time, the Toughbook T1.

Oh, that's another category already... Panasonic Thoughbooks are military-grade machines, built to survive extreme conditions (not just regular businessman's daily routine).
