To honor and celebrate a quarter-decade of ThinkPad supremacy in the business world, Lenovo has made the new ThinkPad 25. This laptop is based on the modern ThinkPad T470, but has some extra features — like an old-school keyboard — that are a throwback to times gone by.

Windows Central Managing Editor Al Sacco recently started a thread in our forum asking whether or not you plan on buying the ThinkPad 25.

During the past decade or so, I've at least three different ThinkPads, and though I liked some more than others, I got a whole lot of work done with those badboys.

Al goes on to explain that he's had at least three ThinkPads in the past, and each treated him well. So much so that he's considering buying a ThinkPad 25 even though he's satisfied with his Surface Pro.
