Lenovo has announced that its eight ThinkPad laptops passed the “Tough Test”, meeting Military Specifications for semi-rugged computing.
“The ThinkPad X200, X301, X200s, X200 Tablet, T400, T500, R400 and SL300 laptops meet a barrage of military specifications tests and are enhanced with uniquely-designed durability features such as an airbag-like protection system and a roll cage in select models,” the company says.
These laptops met tests for low pressure, humidity, vibration, high and low temperatures, temperature shock, and dust.
Lenovo has also added a new optional 680-nit high brightness display to its the ThinkPad T400 14.1-inch laptop. The panel for outdoors use features LED backlight and is “nearly four times brighter than previous ThinkPad laptop screens”.
