Can you imagine a company have sold 100 million units of a particular line of laptop? Well, we certainly can’t and that’s how many ThinkPad Lenovo has shipped, btw, which obviously calls for a celebration.

It also boast an even longer battery life (up to 10.9 hours, Lenovo said) and the entire machine is clad in a beautiful, rugged carbon-forged chassis.
