25th Anniversary ThinkPad

If you’re looking for a special gift for that special someone who has laptop-itis, or just general technology on the brain, you might be well advised to check out the special 25th anniversary edition of the IBM ThinkPad 700C.

The new 25th Anniversary Edition of the ThinkPad 700C

According to CNBC, the ThinkPad Anniversary Edition 25 features a backlit 7-row keyboard, a throwback multicolor logo, the original pink mouse nub and a blue return button. However, it will be a lot thinner then the original 700C, and will feature a 14-inch full HD display. The new old ThinkPad will be priced at $1,899. (I remember working on one of the originals, and thought at times it would make an excellent boat anchor).

On the other hand, if you’re looking for something a little more modern, The Verge provides a detailed first look at the just announced Google Pixelbook. Their verdict? “It’s an incredibly well-built, thin, and beautiful laptop that you can convert into a tablet by flipping the screen over,” but “is it really worth spending over a thousand bucks on a Chromebook device?” The answer to that question seems to depend on how much of an Android you are.
