Lenovo shows off old skool style Thinkpad laptop concept

Posted on Friday, June 26 2015 @ 12:31:49 CEST by


Lenovo teases a concept of a retro-style version of the ThinkPad laptop! In his blog post, Lenovo's David Hill explains he's testing the resilience of building a historically inspired ThinkPad with potential customers and welcomes readers to chime in on the design of this laptop.

With this concept the company is exploring the idea to release a new 1992-style ThinkPad laptop that features all the latest technology advances, while embracing the original design details in the strongest way possible. This includes features like the iconic multi-color ThinkPad logo, the blue enter key, 7-row classic keyboard, a 16:10 aspect ratio screen, dedicated volume controls, rubberized paint, exposed screws, lots of status LEDs, and more:
For a while now I’ve been exploring the idea of introducing a very unique ThinkPad model. Imagine a ThinkPad that embodies all the latest technology advances, however, embraces the original design details in the strongest way possible. I’ve been referring to the concept as retro ThinkPad. Imagine a blue enter key, 7 row classic keyboard, 16:10 aspect ratio screen, multi-color ThinkPad logo, dedicated volume controls, rubberized paint, exposed screws, lots of status LED’s, and more. Think of it like stepping into a time machine and landing in 1992, but armed with today’s technology. Although not for everyone, I’m certain there’s a group of people who would stand in line to purchase such a special ThinkPad model.
