In the corporate world, you need to know you can depend on your employees to handle what you need them to do. The same is true of your business tools. These L Series laptops were built to be reliable performers, no matter what. That's why we submit them to eight MilSpec tests, ensuring they'll stay functional in adverse conditions such as high and low temperatures, altitude, mechanical and thermal shock, humidity, vibration and dust. We also have our own series of torture tests, ensuring they can withstand other extreme conditions. These laptops are constructed for durability, with new metal hinges and latchless design, and come with Active Protection System™ to prevent data loss in the event of a drop. Don't worry — they'll last as long as you do.
These laptops will also put your conscience at ease when you realize you're having minimal negative impact on the environment by using them. The L420 and L520 have the highest amount of post-consumer recycled content of any of the ThinkPad line. The new thermal design has reduced energy consumption and they have lower CO2 emissions. They also ship with 20 percent less packaging, which is 100 percent recyclable. These machines are eco-friendly, and we're not the only ones who say so — they're certified by ENERGY STAR and qualify for the EPEAT® Gold rating.
