    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. Along  with the carbon fiber roll cage and reinforcement throughout, the ensures  durability.

    ThinkVantage 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.
