Lenovo ThinkPad
military-spec tests.

Product tests under extreme conditions.

Lenovo™ has been using the US Department of Defense’s MIL-STD 810G standard since 2007 to ensure perfect reliability and durability of notebooks, workstations and desktop PCs.

The Department of Defense set a standard with the Mil Specs to determine how robust or hard-wearing devices are. A variety of tests are carried out depending on the size, weight and type of device.
