Sometimes called "Retro Thinkpad" is Lenovo's new Lenovo notebook model, which the Chinese manufacturer wants to recall in the early epochs of this series, when Thinkpad was made by IBM and, frankly, so good, that "it was possible to hide behind them in the event of a nuclear explosion". In the years following the takeover of the division by Lenovo, Thinkpads began to look different, made from other materials and lost on modularity. Today's more or less one-piece bodies have nothing to do with the original Thinkpads, and Lenovo has been hearing this criticism for years. That's why there's an annual model.
ThinkPad 25 from a hardware point of view is build on the Core i7-7500i dual-core (4x HT) processor (the "Kaby Lake", released about one year ago), 16GB DDR4, additional GeForce 940MX with 2GB GDDR5 memory, 512GB PCI Express SSD , A 14 "FullHD display, another common current equipment, and especially a relatively classical IBM keyboard, and of course Microsoft Windows 10 Pro.
Those who are familiar with today's common Thinkpads will notice imaginative similarities with the ThinkPad T470s. Just like the modern Nokia 3310, it is only a facelift that is significantly cheaper Nokia 222, and the new Thinkpad 25 is just the facelift of another common model.
In this case, facelift is built on a older processor on the market. Allow me to criticize this notebook for the choice of hardware, because I think that publishing the annual edition of the jubilee of a major brand should look quite different. The Core i7-7500u is a dual-core 2.7GHz processor with TDP 15 W and HD Graphics 620 graphics. Instead, Lenovo could choose something far more appropriate, such as the Core i7-7560U (more powerful Iris Plus Graphics 640 for the same TDP) or the Core i7-8650U (quad-core, UHD Graphics 620 with the same TDP) - especially when prices of these CPU differ only by few dollars.
I think GeForce 940MX - this mobile graphics is also in the market for about 1 year, and it is the facelift of the previous generation, which has added only GDDR5 support, unnecessarily in the Thinkpad 25, regardless of the CPU (even if the Core i7-7500u is retained) it takes up space, increases the price and consumes energy, its 384 CUDA cores are low-end, compared to the better iGPU from Intel, but the Thinkpad 25 is built on an older common platform ThinkPad T470s in the configuration and half 8GB memories can be bought around $ 1,500.
