    Power Manager Software

    Intuitively limits the energy drain of idle processes and provides an extra surge of energy when needed most, stretching your system's unplugged run-time to the max.

    Military-Specification Testing

    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. A carbon fiber roll cage with reinforcement throughout  makes the X1 Carbon ultradurable, yet highly portable.

    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.

    EPEAT® Gold, ENERGY STAR, ULE Gold Sustainable Product Certification

    Save energy and lower power consumption costs — good for the planet and your bottom line.

    Advanced Thermal Design

    Dual vents and new 2012 fan blade design deliver 28% increase in airflow, plus dust collection is minimized. As a result, select ThinkPad models provide better processing performance and system reliability by minimizing system temperatures, as well as promoting a longer lifecycle.
