For the 25th birthday of the ThinkPad brand, Lenovo is preparing a special anniversary version. This special ThinkPad will be called ThinkPad 25 and it will be based on the ThinkPad T470. Also included: The classic ThinkPad keyboard.
Benjamin Herzig,

At the and of June, Lenovo for the first time officially announced that the company is doing a special anniversary ThinkPad for the 25th birthday of the long-time Laptop brand. Not many details were announced about this special model back then however. Presumably, Lenovo is waiting till October for that, as the first ThinkPad Laptop was announced in the October of 1992.

Thanks to a certification-site of the TÜVRheinland, we now know that this "Retro ThinkPad" will be based on an existing model, the ThinkPad T470. The T470 was reviewed by Notebookcheck a few months ago and it received a score of 91 % as well as the "very good" mark.

But thats not all the leaked information. In the chinese Notebook-forum, someone posted a picture that presumably shows the special edition ThinkPad 25. The picture quality isn´t very good and its just a small part of the machine that is visible, but some details can be clearly seen. For example, the Fingerprint-sensor is visible, its located seemingly exactly where it is in the T470. Also visible is the special-edition ThinkPad logo with the colorful "Pad" as well as a keyboard that looks very much like the old ThinkPad models up until 2011 had. The last 14" ThinkPad with such a classical non-Chiclet keyboard was the ThinkPad T420.

No exact specifications have been leaked so far, the same goes for the price of the special edition ThinkPad and where and when it is available.

In 2010 I started to get more and more involved with technology, especially notebooks have been my passion ever since. Of course I came across the detailed tests of Notebookcheck very quickly. With time I learned more and more about notebooks and started writing small reviews about notebooks in forums and blog pages. To earn some extra money during my studies I turned my hobby into my profession and joined the team of Notebookcheck in 2016. My personal interest is especially in business notebooks.
