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.

You are probably comparing the best from the past with the average or worst of the present. This is called "survivor bias" and explains why music from the past is always the best, buildings from the past are always more beautiful and the 1 ancient computer that you still like to use is build better than new ones
