Source text - English IBM ThinkPad: The history of ThinkPad
Did you know the ThinkPad® name was thought up during a coffee
break? According to IBM legend, an IBM researcher took from his pocket
a notepad, which had the word THINK on it, and conceived the idea
of a small, portable tool on which to write, read, work — and
Back in the late 1980s, analysts were forecasting a bright future
for portable computers and predicting that IBM's days were numbered,
given the company's focus on mainframes and enterprise projects.
Little did they realize that IBM would lead the coming technological
advances in the portable market, becoming the company that has
done more than any other to bring new technology to mobile computing.
Translation - Spanish IBM ThinkPad: La historia de la portátil
¿Sabía usted que el nombre ThinkPad se le ocurrió a alguien durante
un receso para tomar café? Según se cuenta, un investigador de IBM
tomó una tableta de papel (pad) de su bolsillo con la palabra THINK
escrita, y concibió una herramienta portátil y compacta para escribir,
trabajar y pensar.
A finales de la década de los 80, los analistas pronosticaban
un gran futuro para las computadoras portátiles y predijeron que
los días de IBM estaban contados, dado el énfasis de la compañía
en las computadoras tipo mainframe y los proyectos empresariales.
Estos señores no tenían ni la más mímima idea que IBM encabezaría
la industria con sus innovaciones tecnológicas en el mercado de
computadoras portátiles y que aportaría a la industria de la computación
móvil más tecnologías que cualquier otra empresa.
