We recently reviewed the ThinkPad 25 – a throwback celebratory creation from Lenovo to honor the legendary laptop line.

While the laptop is mostly a re-branded Lenovo T470 (see review), there are a few nods to the original ThinkPad including recreating its popular seven-row keyboard and adding a few retro design elements.

Sure, the near $1,900 price tag is a bit high, but this laptop is MIL-SPEC built laptop is a workhorse with excellent battery life, a great typing experience, and all the ports you can use (including a built-in RJ-45). The NVIDIA GeForce 940 MX also gives a little extra push to the 7th gen Intel Core i7 processor and the 16GB of RAM and 512GB PCIe SSD are solid performers too.
