|To whom it may concern:
I wanted to share an amazing story about your ThinkPad! I’m a Director
of Photography and my work takes me to all kinds of exotic locations all
over the world.
A while ago we traveled to K2 Base Camp in Pakistan to film a documentary
for National Geographic. Our ThinkPads went with us. Before we even reached
our final destination, they endured multiple plane flights, a rugged 36-hour
bus trip up the Karakoram Highway, and an incredibly jarring and dusty
9-hour jeep ride to a remote mountain village. From there, our ThinkPads
traveled 10 days on the backs of Pakistani porters, over 65 miles of treacherous
terrain, half of it on the dangerous Baltoro Glacier.
When we finally did reach the K2 Base Camp, our ThinkPads endured over
three months of extreme temperature changes, from 70 degrees during the
day, down into the low teens at night. It could literally go from summer
to winter in one week.
Through varied temperatures from hot to freezing, and at sixteen-thousand-foot
elevations, with no special high-altitude disk drives, your ThinkPads
performed flawlessly. They helped us document our story every day... and
served as a great source of entertainment to the locals.
Thank you ThinkPad!
