2nd generation Intel® Core™ i series processorsSelect ThinkPad models are powered by up to 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processors with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, which features smart performance and built-in visuals for a visibly better PC experience.
AMD processorsAMD offers a variety of processors designed specifically for laptops, including AMD Turion™ X2 processors (enhanced memory and processing along with next-generation power management), and AMD Fusion processors (enhanced productivity and multitasking).
Solid-state storage drivesSolid-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.
|Displays and graphics|
Discrete graphicsDiscrete graphics models feature a dedicated graphics processor and memory to provide superior 3D performance for gaming or other graphics-intensive applications.

|Security and protection|
Roll-cage technologySelect ThinkPad® notebooks get their solid feel thanks to innovative ThinkPad roll-cage technology, a collection of durability features that adds extra strength and rigidity to the notebook shell and top cover.
Hard/storage drive impact protectionThinkPad® notebooks use a rubber isolator and metal cage to protect the hard/storage drive. The ThinkVantage® Active Protection System™ (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.
Combined hardware/software securitySelect ThinkPad® models feature the Trusted Platform Module 1.2, Client Security Solution software and an integrated fingerprint reader for a seamlessly integrated security package. Additional available security features include 32-byte pre-boot passwords and the ability to disable input/output ports at the BIOS level.
Integrated Fingerprint ReaderLet your unique fingerprint be your password. Gain fast and easy system access with a swipe of your finger.
Password management softwarePassword Manager lets you store various passwords for safekeeping and easy access, and can be tied into the optional integrated fingerprint reader.
Intel® anti-theft protectionSelect notebooks offer Intel® Anti-Theft protection (AT-p), an extra layer of security and manageability incorporated with Computrace® Data Protection™ and Intel vPro™ technology. Intel AT-p lets you activate hardware-based, client-side intelligence to secure your PC and data if it's lost or stolen. The technology is built into the hardware, so it provides local, tamper-resistant defense that works even if the OS is re-imaged, a new hard drive is installed, or the laptop is disconnected from the network -- for the ultimate in data protection and mobile security.
