# ThinkPad History

This is a list of notebooks produced under the ThinkPad brand, sorted from the oldest to the newest model. Note that not all features are listed in the 'standard features' column, as there are optional features which may or may not appear on a model. The standard features column assumes that every model has been maxed-out, which means it's equipped with every possible feature it was originally offered with. |

## Models produced in the Lenovo era

Lenovo completed the ThinkPad brand acquisition in May 2005. As part of the deal, some ThinkPads continued to be sold under the **IBM ThinkPad** brand for years afterwards. The said brand was however, discontinued (likely due to the license expiring) mid-way in production of the T61/R61/X61 models. This is also the reason why all models after the T61 did not feature the old IBM branding.
