ThinkLight can illuminate a piece of paper that is beside your computer,
allowing you to work in otherwise compete darkness.
Actually tried to do office work in such situations, and it works!
The illuminated keys cannot do this.

~~IBM Thinkpad era computer bag !
But otherwise its darn useful... eg. i use it to see small objects in a conferenece room etc.
I'm pretty sure Lenovo is determined to erase this on future models.
As far as I know, only the HP Elite tried to replicate the light on only their 1st gen models coming onto 10yrs ago and they used a physical switch so it looks like the pop up headlights on a 1980s sports car.
It was sort of ahead of its time; we've got brighter LEDs available now.
I've been saying for years that pretty much anything that has a battery should have an LED light of some sort, given the battery is generally the largest & heaviest part of most lights.
