They passes MIL-STD-810G. That are eight tests: humidity, low temperature, high temperature, dust, vibration, mechanical shock, altitude, and extreme temperatures. http://www.lenovo.com/news/us/en/2009/0 ... uting.html
That are the test for the newer ThinkPads too.
YIPS " ALREADY seen that page ...... and items of note in the "Announcement letters /news"
Lenov 'talks' of having done those tests - nowhere do the QUOTE THAT APPROVAL NUMBER !
yes granted - they are "Tough Test":Meet Military Specifications for Semi-Rugged Computing
as most 'field user' in those area's they talk about (police etc) would agree to...
Also repeated requests (even from pple mentioned in that letter/news) NOR The Current Thinkpad ProDuct Manager (WW) = no repsonse ! everyone seems to talk of 'that tests' noone is able to even 'email; me an APPROVED MIL number !
Saying in press = dont necessary make it 'approved' unless someone actually plublic'ly places such document on line and or send one to us...(like used to be case for T6xp etc) in past years ! FYI ..if you search in Lenovo-US webite for "MIL-STD-810G" = would not give you any 'results' - as that ARTICLE is not longer used ... "wonder why?"
So we now no- longer able to say 'our machines' are MIL-SPEC - MIL APPROVED.... in certain area's of our work....all of these are T&W Series current machines....
Ah well life goes on !
