ThinkPad Mil-SPEC: Tested To The Extreme Video

Mil-SPEC is a set of standards designed to test durability, ruggedness and reliability. These tests cover extreme environmental variables including temperature, pressure, dust, humidity and vibration testing.

Although ThinkPads have always been known for their robustness, they were not specifically designed to only meet the Mil-SPEC 810G standard. Meeting the standard is just the start of ThinkPad's durability, robustness and reliability. Selected ThinkPad models, including all X & T series, have successfully passed the following tests:
