    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.

    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.
