The TrackWrite, also known as the butterfly keyboard, is a foldout laptop computer keyboard designed by John Karidis for IBM as part of the ThinkPad 701 series, released in 1995. It allowed the 701 series to be both compact (when closed) and comfortable to use (when open), despite being just 24.6 cm (9.7 in) wide with a 26.4 cm (10.4 in) VGA LCD. The 701 was the top selling laptop of 1995, however, as later laptop models featured progressively larger screens, the need for a folding keyboard was eliminated. Consequently, no model but the 701 used the butterfly keyboard.
ThinkPad is a brand of laptop computers originally designed, manufactured and sold by IBM that are known for their boxy black design, which was originally modeled after a traditional Japanese lunchbox. Since early 2005, the ThinkPad range has been manufactured and marketed by Lenovo, who purchased the IBM personal computer division.
