"titanium plate LCD lid build quality"5.0 starson by Toshiaki
Pros: bulletproof to two 9mm bullets
Cons: -none- none on my part
Summary: this little review is on the thinkpad's LCD lid quality ONLY.
the protection of the titanium plating on the back of the thinkpad's lid is a first. i am very convinced that it is the best screen protection any notebook can have. my cousin is in the US military and has been using this thinkpad in iraq ever since he was deployed there. the back of his screen, the titanium side, was shot twice by a 9mm pistol from enemy fire. concerned as he was, he attempted to turn on his computer back at basecamp and surpisingly the computer fired up normally and loaded windows. through what he says, the screen was slightly warped and there was a cluster of stuck and dead pixels. i am amazed that the screen even functions let alone the backlight even functioning. i am convinced that there is no other "test" that can beat this one. i rate this thinkpad 10/10 only based on the screen protection. i do not own this thinkpad so i cannot speak for any other part of the notebook other than the screen "test" ironically played upon my cousin fighting in the middle east.
