As promised by Lenovo in June about the 25th anniversary ThinkPad comeback, the recent leaks by German blog WinFuture have confirmed the launch of the new Lenovo Thinkpad, which published the techie’s specs and photos online. The speculated ultimate throwback laptop by Lenovo features “Anniversary Edition 25” branding. Anniversary editions are rarely that special, but with the Lenovo Thinkpad’s professional pedigree, this one could be great.
According to the sources, the newly launched Lenovo Thinkpad will have the same specifications as that of the previous Lenovo ThinkPad T470. The ThinkPad T470 was a trendsetter with its 17 hours-plus battery life, comfortable keyboard, fast SSD drive and robust selection of ports.
Specifications of Lenovo Thinkpad
The Lenovo ThinkPad will have iconic Trackpoint pointing stick found in present-day models, the signature blue enter key and multi-coloured logo for its predecessor. With a 14-inch IPS display (1920×1080), Intel Core i7 Processor, 16 GB of RAM the Lenovo Thinkpad has 512 MB of SSD storage and Nvidia GeForce 940 MX graphics chip. Looking at the leaked photos, one can find dedicated buttons for volume, power and microphone muting in the laptop. It is also alleged that Lenovo may also throw in LTE support and have the same robust ports that we saw with the ThinkPad T470: three USB 3.0 ports, one Thunderbolt 3 port, an HDMI port, an SD card reader, a headphone jack and Ethernet connectivity in the Lenovo Thinkpad. A fingerprint sensor and IR webcam which will help enable Windows Hello Support will further decorate the high specs of the laptop.
The Thinkpad range was originated in 1992 under its then-owner IBM. The smart professionalism feel has been a part of the Lenovo Thinkpad since then. With an overall weight of around 3.5 pounds, the laptop will embark the 25-year milestone of the Thinkpad series. The product is expected to hit the market shelves very soon, though Lenovo seems to be very tight-lipped on the subject.
