Yamato Labs announced the release of a limited-edition version of their leading product to celebrate 25 years of innovative tech. The Anniversary Edition 25 comes packed with modern technology and a classic, retro design. Some features include multiple status LEDs, a multicolour logo, a backlit 7-row keyboard and dedicated volume buttons.
Lenovo launched the concept in June 25th, 2015, using social media platforms to collect feedback and ideas from global loyal fans. Inside the Anniversary Edition, 25 is a powerful Intel® Core™ i7-7500U processor with a NVIDIA GeForce 940MX accompanying it. In addition, the beautiful 14-inch full HD display with touchscreen shows off the graphical processing power of the GeForce 940MX.
25 Years of Technological Innovation
The Anniversary Edition 25 celebrates the original 700C, designed by Richard Sapper under the same roof of the Edition 25th. The 700C, which was inspired by the Japanese bento box, was announced on October 5th, 1992. Within months, the 700C won over 300 awards. As a result, owning one became a status symbol for presidents and CEOs. Therefore, some business leaders consider owning one to be vital.
ThinkPad is undoubtedly one of the largest icons in the IT industry. Helping explorers reach Earth’s most untouched places, supporting thousands of businesses grow, and helping astronauts get into space are just some examples of how Yamato Labs has brought innovation to this world.
“Our design creates a powerful and synergistic relationship between form and function. It balances sophisticated aesthetics, thoughtfully crafted user experiences, and renowned engineering in order to deliver superior products,” explains David Hill, former Chief Design Office of Lenovo.“25 years after introducing the original 700C, the latest X1 Carbon is immediately recognizable as a Yamato Labs product.”
Yamato Labs for Life
While the creation of the Anniversary Edition 25 is no small feat, technology does not stop growing. Yamato Labs remain motivated in their journey to push the limits of modern mobile technology until no longer possible. As we can see with the 701C’s butterfly keyboard the X1 Yoga’s 2-in-1 convertible keyboard, trying new implementations of original technologies is one way of reaching innovation. Also, Yamato products are always packed with the best technology for the best experience.
The former head of Yamato Labs believes that the future of technology is safe in the hands of Yamato Labs. “From 700C to X1 Series, Yamato has proved it can enable business transformation and offer customers uncompromised mobility,” he says. “Our teams imagine a world where we further enrich user experiences as technology becomes more embedded in our lives.”
