  • Low Temperature ? Tests operation at minus 4 degrees
  • Temperature Shock ? Fluctuates between minus 4 and up to 140 degrees to test operation
  • Dust ? Blows dust for an extended amount of time

Lenovo durability features include the:

  • Active Protection System ? Temporarily parks the hard drive when the laptop detects a fall or sudden movement via an air-bag like system
  • Roll Cage ? Serves as a protective frame around the internal components where the data resides and processing takes place with an extra top cover roll cage on the ThinkPad X301 laptop
  • Shock Mounted Hard Drive ? Offers extra protection around the hard drive to protect data
  • Spill Resistant Keyboard ? Withstands spills of up to two fluid ounces on select laptops allowing liquid to drain beneath the keyboard.

Lenovo is also adding a new optional 680-nit high brightness panel to its most popular laptop, the ThinkPad T400 laptop.
