Lenovo Thinkpad X1 is Girlfriend-Proof / Rugged

By Jamie Pert - May 12, 2011

We saw on Engadget today that prospective buyers of the new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 can watch a short video showcasing some of the laptop’s strengths (literally). Although the video is fairly corny, it still gives the laptop enough credibility to attract buyers.

What we can see from the video is that the laptop is built with a “Military-Grade Tough” case which means that it is very durable, it also features a Gorilla Glass screen which is strong and scratch resistant. Other neat features include a backlit keyboard which is also water-resistant.

The video gives the laptop a comic image but as we showed in a previous post, the laptop also comes with a fairly high price. It has some nice specs, however we think that it has prices itself out of the market, especially when you can buy a Macbook Air for a cheaper price.

Watch the video below and tell us what you think. As a reminder, the laptop comes out May 17, so once you have watched the video below, tell us if you would buy the new laptop or whether you think there are other laptops on the market that attract you more.
