The name "Think Pad" is a product of IBM's corporate history and culture. Watson, Sr., had first introduced "THINK" as an IBM slogan in the 1920s.With every minicomputer and mainframe IBM installed (almost all were leased - not sold), a blue plastic sign was placed atop the operator's console, with the "Think" command on an aluminum plate.This can cause problems, such as accidental clicking if too much pressure is exerted during mouse movements.On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Think Pad's introduction, David Hill authored and designed a commemorative book about Think Pad design.Although almost all models feature a trackpoint, not all models have a touchpad; of those that do, not all have left and right buttons below, possibly making mouse clicks less ergonomic.The touchpads of the X220 double as regular mouse buttons, which is also the case with some newer models (as of December 2013).Modifications include velcro tape to attach to surfaces, upgrades to the CPU and video card cooling fans to accommodate for the lack of gravity (hotter air doesn't rise) and lower density of the cabin air, and an adapter to the station's 28 volt DC power.The Think Pad 750 flew aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour during a mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope on December 2, 1993.
The first Think Pads were released in October 1992 and it became a large success for IBM in the decade as it was considered innovative. Older models are revered by technology enthusiasts, collectors and power users due to their durable design, relatively high resale value, and abundance of aftermarket replacement parts.
