Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad 25

89.2% Lenovo ThinkPad 25 Anniversary Edition Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Retro rewind. What's old is new again in this special anniversary ThinkPad that throws out the AccuType keyboard in favor of the classic layout and design. Outside of the new keyboard, there isn't anything particularly new about the ThinkPad 25 that we haven't already covered on the ThinkPad T470.
Lenovo ThinkPad 25 Anniversary Edition Review: Retro Style, Modern Performance
Source: Hot Hardware English
Some will certainly complain about the price; at $1,899 it's not a bargain machine. On the other hand, the ThinkPad 25 AE is meant to be a durable workhorse more than a gaming or multimedia machine, but it can handle a bit of both those tasks with enough gusto for most mainstream users. However, as workhorse laptops go, the ThinkPad 25 Anniversary Edition certainly lives up to IBM and Lenovo's legacy.

85% Lenovo ThinkPad 25 review: Sweet nostalgic design with modern specs
Source: Neowin English
I found Lenovo's ThinkPad 25 to be a thoroughly enjoyable machine, but the bottom line is that if you're considering buying it, get it for the unique features that it offers, or nostalgia. If you're buying it for the specs, ports, Windows Hello, durability, and other great but not unique features, there are better alternatives, like the ThinkPad X1 Yoga.

The satisfaction a user will feel with this notebook relies at least partially on their connection to the original. The ThinkPad is one of the most memorable brand names in notebook computers, and Lenovo knows it. They’re not about to let consumers forget it.

Lenovo ThinkPad 25 Anniversary Edition Review: The Best ThinkPad ever, and ready for the Fall Creators Update
Source: Our IT Department English
At the end of the day, the ThinkPad 25 is one of the best ThinkPads ever. Though a bit pricey, it lives up to the hype and is a great option for those who want a nostalgic looking device. It also packs surprising specs, a familiar design and build, a mass selection of ports, and has a decent touchscreen display. There’s the added plus of throwback features like a classic keyboard, and also modern touches like Windows Hello and a Precision TouchPad. Battery life is great, and the laptop will last a user all day long. Originally on sale for $1899, supplies of the ThinkPad 25 are very limited, but you can sign up at Lenovo to learn when it is available by clicking here.

Lenovo ThinkPad 25 Limited Edition Laptop: Is It Worth It?
Source: Business News Daily English
The Lenovo ThinkPad 25 Anniversary Edition has the robust security features (including a fingerprint scanner and infrared camera for facial recognition) and the internal specs for heavy-duty business use, but its target demo is clearly die-hard fans of the ThinkPad line who want a special limited-edition laptop. It's not that the ThinkPad 25 is a poor machine – quite the opposite – but most business users value the ability to select from multiple laptop configurations, to avoid overpaying for features that aren't necessary.

Although we wish that Lenovo had gone a little further down memory lane by adding a ThinkLight, and given users the option of a non-touch screen model, this special edition laptop is a great choice for ThinkPad fans or anyone who needs to get serious work done.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 940MX: Mid-range laptop graphics card based on the Maxwell architecture. Compared to the older 940M, the MX now also supports GDDR5 graphics memory and maybe slightly faster clock speeds. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
14":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.73 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


82.37%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
