Lenovo ThinkPad celebrates 25 years of cutting edge technology

Lenovo celebrated twenty-five years of cutting edge design and engineering innovation at a special milestone event held last week.

“Over the last twenty-five years the ThinkPad has not only become an icon of the IT industry, it has helped to change the world,” said Kevin Beck, Senior Worldwide Competitive Analyst, Lenovo Customer Centres. “From helping explorers reach Earth’s most remote places to supporting dozens of missions in space, providing Stephen Hawking with a voice and facilitation countless businesses to grow – these are just some of the stories in which ThinkPad has assisted some of the world’s foremost minds to break boundaries.”

Designed by Richard Sapper and engineered in the Yamato Labs in Japan, the original ThinkPad 700C was announced on October 5th 1992. Inspired by the traditional Japanese bento box, the 700C was the start of an amazing journey. In the space of a couple of months, it won more than 300 awards and became a status symbol for Presidents and CEOs.

Speaking to what’s next for ThinkPad, Kevin Beck says, “From the original 700C to the latest X1 Series, ThinkPad has proven it can enable business transformation and offer customers uncompromised mobility. Our team of engineers imagine a future world where ThinkPad creates new segments and further enriches user experiences as technology becomes more imbedded in our lives.”

He added, “As technology has advanced with exponential speed, the designers and engineers behind ThinkPad have remained purpose-driven in their quest to continually reimagine mobile computing while preserving the original concept. Over the next 25 years, ThinkPad will continue to develop, innovate and deliver the technologies of tomorrow.”

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
