The Original IBM ThinkPad was a Paper Notepad

I love when I find out fun facts about items I had up to that point not really considered. I have owned and worked on IBM ThinkPads for years and never once thought about their origins. Yesterday I was doing a search on IBM when I came across an older post at A Continuous Lean called, The Original IBM ThinkPad. It has wonderful photos and tells how the IBM ThinkPad got its start as a humble Paper Notepad giveaway that would inspire the name of their line of laptops.
