Ingram Micro NZ and Lenovo cut the cake in Doubtful Sound

18 Oct 17

Lenovo has been celebrating the ThinkPad’s 25th birthday around the world, but New Zealand resellers partook of the most remote, southern celebrations.

The celebration, which took place while Ingram Micro was hosting their top 10 Lenovo resellers, was in Doubtful Sound, with a cake cutting at latitude 45.337650, longitude 167.012601.

Designed by Richard Sapper and engineered in Japan’s Yamto Labs, the ThinkPad was inspired by the traditional Japanese bento box.

The original ThinkPad 700C was announced on 05 October 1992 and within a couple of months had won more than 300 awards, Lenovo says.

“From helping explorers reach Earth’s remotest places to supporting dozens of missions into space, providing Stephen Hawkings with a voice and facilitating countless businesses to grow – these are just some of the stories in which ThinkPad has assisted some of the world’s foremost minds to break boundaries,” says Kevin Beck, Lenovo Customer Centers senior worldwide competitive analyst.
