The Chief Design Officer of Lenovo, David Hill, gave an excellent, brief talk at CES 2016 about the lineage of ThinkPads. Rather than designs that are continually remodeled to reflect "what's new," ThinkPads are designed to reflect "what's better." Please enjoy watching David discuss how the ThinkPad design is a perfect balance between form, function and emotion.
Richard Sapper will surely be missed, but his designs will remain timeless. To learn more about Richard Sapper and the origins of the ThinkPad, please read the following article written by Lenovo's David Hill in 2013. http://blog.lenovo.com/en/blog/richard-sapper-the-origins-of-the-thinkpad-keyboard
