"Design Longevity"

What is it about ThinkPad that makes it special. Can you think of another high tech product that has not significantly changed the design since ita€™s introduction nearly 14 years ago? The famous rectangular black box notebook computer punctuated by the bright red TrackPoint is anything but simplistic. Most great art or design on the surface appears simple, but under closer examination is anything but. How many times have I overheard museum gallery visitors comment on how they could have made the famous Picasso Bulla€™s Head sculpture or a Matisse paper cut out, but did they? Originality, quality of execution, and the essence of a powerful idea are what sets these things apart. The powerful idea behind ThinkPad design is the creation of a synergistic link between both form and function. ThinkPad is not about one or the other, it is about the combined power of both.
