In this manner, what was the last IBM ThinkPad?
Launched in April 2005, the ThinkPad T43 and T43plaptops were the last T-series laptops manufactured forIBM.
why did IBM sell ThinkPad? Soon after taking over as CEO, Palmisano determined thatIBM's personal computing business would have minimal roomfor innovation, so he decided to sell. This caused ferventinternal debate mainly because its PC division was still profitableat the time. However, IBM indeed sold the branch toLenovo in 2004.
Correspondingly, are ThinkPads still good?
Sturdy, hardy, and covered in deep matte black,ThinkPads are iconic. Lenovo has mostly been a goodguardian of the ThinkPad brand, but it did misapply thelabel on its plasticky ThinkPad Edge laptops. I owned one ofthose and it definitely didn't live up to the storied reputation ofthis portable PC.
Is Lenovo the old IBM?
ThinkPads were originally an IBM product; theyhave been manufactured and sold by Lenovo since early 2005,following its acquisition of IBM's personal computerdivision. The ThinkPad has been used in space and is the onlylaptop certified for use on the International SpaceStation.
