Baked, battered, blistered.

ThinkPad notebooks endure a lot before they ever reach you. We meticulously design many of them to pass rugged military spec tests. We outfit them with spill-resistant keyboards, roll-cage technology and shock-mounted hard drives. And we test them in ways you can't imagine--baking, battering, blistering and blowing them with sand.

Uncommon power for uncommon demands.

We don’t call ThinkPad W Series systems "the ultimate mobile workstation" for nothing — they chew up and spit out even the most demanding high-end professional apps.

Mobile professionals who must process compute-intensive workloads while on location should consider the ThinkPad W701ds.

Solid-State Storage Drives

Solid-state storage drives (SSDs) use Flash memory rather than traditional magnetic storage. So they are lighter than traditional drives, use less power and offer improved performance (faster boot times, faster access to stored data). And since they have no moving parts, solid state drives are considered less susceptible to damage or breakdown.

Hard/Storage Drive Impact Protection

Traditional ThinkPad® notebooks use a rubber isolator and metal cage to protect the hard/storage drive. The ThinkVantage® Active Protection System (APS) (on models with traditional magnetic hard drives) uses an accelerometer to monitor movement of the system and stop the drive, and help protect against damage when a fall or similar event is detected. Our latest model, the T430u Ultrabook™ features APS, and also uses rubber mounts for the hard disk drive (rather than rails); additionally, the HDD connector is not rigidly attached to the board, so the connector absorbs shock and impact.
