If you want the ultimate, ultra-light ThinkPad, take a number. Lenovo today announced the "limited" release of its Thinkpad Reserve Edition, commemorating the 15th anniversary of the original ThinkPad notebook.
The leather-encased notebook is available for $5,000. Lenovo said it only plans to make 5,000 of the units available and each one will be specially numbered like a collector's item. In addition to the "hand-stitched, saddle-grade premium French Leather," the special ThinkPad's come with a new "executive class" level of service and support.
Lenovo said each ThinkPad Reserve user will get a dedicated, specially-trained PC support specialist that is available at the touch of a button, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
