Active Protection System
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.
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. Plus, a carbon fiber roll cage with reinforcement throughout makes the X1 Carbon Touch ultradurable, yet highly portable.
