Its 25 years since the first ThinkPad came out and Lenovo has chose to celebrate the occasion with an anniversary special ThinkPad 25. Well, that device has been released. The ThinkPad Anniversary Edition 25 is the limited edition model from the company. The list of characteristics includes the SSD to 512 GB, 16 GB RAM, Full HD screen 14 inch, CPU Intel Core i7-7500U and Nvidia GeForce 940MX. The ThinkPad Anniversary Edition 25 largely resembles a retro-inspired concept put forth by former Lenovo Chief Design Officer David Hill in 2015. The ThinkPad 25 has distinctly retro styling, including a classic seven-row keyboard (now with backlighting), blue accents on the subkeys, and a blue Enter key.

The Edition 25 is available in limited quantities in select countries, and sells for $1,899. While that still remains true, ThinkPads are making their way into the consumer market.

"From the original 700C to the latest X1 Series, ThinkPad has proved it can enable business transformation and offer customers uncompromised mobility", he says.

"To commemorate 25 years of ThinkPad, we're paying homage to some of the original aesthetics of that first model, while maintaining the powerful performance and mobile agility of today's configurations".

"Our team of engineers imagine a future world where ThinkPad creates new segments and further enrichens user experiences as technology becomes more embedded in our lives".

$1899 is a high price for the specifications, especially compared to other machines in Lenovo's lineup like the T470, but this seems like it will be a low-volume special edition SKU produced for the most dedicated ThinkPad fans. That may be expensive, but it's still better than the $2,375 it cost to buy a 700C in 1992.
