Lenovo's T400s Gets Run Over By Truck

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 29 comments

The first images of Lenovo’s T400s were leaked just this week and already, the company has released videos of people running it over with trucks and subjecting it to tornado-grade winds.

No, you’re not looking at a video made by some frustrated Lenovo employees disappointed by the notebook. Slashgear reports that this video along with one of the laptop left outside during a tornado, were made to demonstrate how tough this notebook really is.

There’s nothing official on specs or price yet, but rumor says it’ll come packing an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, a 14.1-inch screen, an integrated 4500MHD graphics processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 120 GB hard drive and Windows Vista pre-loaded. Nothing at all on price.

Check out the two videos below!

    The title is poorly worded.

    You need to include the word "by" as in "Lenovo's T400 Run Over by Truck". This titles describes a laptop running over a truck.

    "Lenovo's T400 Ran Over Truck, Survives"

    A laptop ran over a truck? That's pretty amazing.

    The "left outside during a tornado" portion was entirely underwhelming. What you meant to say was "left ouside whilst there was a tornado about 50, maybe 100, miles away." They dropped it a few times, got it a little wet, and then took it home. Where was the F5 tornado ripping along, picking up the notebook and dropping it in the next county? THATs a notebook I would want in my backpack (at that point I could simply use the notebook's indestructibility as a shelter against any calamity.)

    What gets me about this article is that it talks like the T400 isnt publicly available, but they are on Lenovo's website and we have been using them at work for several months.

    I can't see the videos at work, so I'm just going to assume that the first video is a video of a lenovo laptop being run over Space Marine Style by Dawn of War.

    Awesome.

    Naturally the grammar police have replied first. By the way, the title is POORLY worded, not badly. Ironic isn't it.

    ...I did say poorly.

    And I wasn't annoyed by the grammar, my hopes were crushed when I didn't see a video of some monster rig battle a Monster Trunk in a giant arena with fire breath.

    My Thinkpad T61 fell 7 feet from the top of the back of our Toyota Hylander when my wife open the gate to get something out. I freaked out and then after examining the laptop I could not believe nothing was broken and immediately booted after I pressed the power button.

    I will be buying a Lenovo Thinkpad in the future.

    The T400 has been out for a while. However, the T400s is not yet on the market.

    Nothing impressive about throwing a laptop out of a car, dropping it from 6 feet, throwing it 10 feet into dirt, or letting it get soaked in the rain? Alright then. Not sure what WOULD impress you.

    What do you consider better? Dell? Compaq? oh wait, they may be based in America, but their factories aren't... Plus they aren't as reliable, and don't have the best keyboards of any notebook out there.
    And since when does money to a private company go to the government, besides taxes?

    @Brother Shrike - what do you suggest then, are you saying that lenovo is the best labtop period. If not then I say anything comparable would be a better choice than a lenovo. Yes I would choose a dell over a lenovo and this is not an issue about choosing american product over chinese it's that I would choose anything comparable over lenovo because I don't trust the chinese govt when it comes to electronics.
