We've know this was coming for some time, but it has finally got its official launch. Lenovo has "uncorked" the ThinkPad Reserve Edition.

The Reserve Edition has been created in celebration of the 15th anniversary of the classic ThinkPad notebook created by IBM.

Tech-wise this model is a none-too-shabby top-of-the-range ThinkPad, but it's the extras that really set it apart.

Clad in hand-stitched, saddle-grade premium French leather, each Lenovo ThinkPad Reserve Edition notebook is individually numbered and comes with live, round-the-clock executive-class service and support.

Each ThinkPad Reserve user is provided access to dedicated, specially-trained "Executive Support staff", available
at the touch of a button, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

All calls are answered within four rings in the owner's native language. Or the owner can press the ThinkVantage button on the keyboard and get a live IM connection to their support expert.

If needed, a specially-trained technician will be at a customer's location within four hours in 20 countries, and will even condition the leather exterior before departing.

Makes our IT department look a bit shabby, that's for sure...
