Testing & Extra Durability Features
Validates the ruggedness,
durability, and quality of ThinkPad products by testing against eight
parameters: high pressure, humidity, vibration, high temperature, temperature
shock, low pressure (15,000 ft), low temperature, and dust. It uses
thicker plastic on the bezel with integrated webcam, for extra durability. The
full-sized keyboard reduces gaps between keys by 60%, so keys are less
likely to be removed, and the advanced drainage system collects and diverts
liquid away from circuitry through drainage hole in bottom.
Active Protection System (APS)
For models with traditional hard
drives, an accelerometer detects movement and stops the drive when a fall or
similar event is detected. Rubber mounts are used for the hard disk drive
(rather than rails) and the HDD connector is not rigidly attached to the board,
so the connector absorbs shock and impact and protects against system damage.
A low-light sensitive HD webcam, HD
anti-glare display, HD microphone, and speakers, plus preloaded
Skype™ application for video calls makes it a cinch for learning via
social networks. LED activity lights on the top cover indicate at-a-glance
status of wireless connectivity and power/sleep mode. Dolby® Advanced
Audio™ v2 provides immersive surround sound and enhanced acoustics.
Intel® HD graphics includes up to 100% increase in 3D and visual
performance from previous generations.
A simplified dashboard that reflects
total system health, this hardware diagnostic tool allows quick and convenient
access to frequently-used system management tools, including backup and
restore, antivirus and firewall settings, system/software updates, internet
connections, and service and support.
Includes industry-leading wireless
connections and is ready for wherever, whenever access to the Web.
