A Closer Look At The ThinkPad: Reasons Behind The Popularity

A Closer Look At The ThinkPad: Reasons Behind The Popularity

Often seen in countless schools and offices, the popularity of the ThinkPad speaks for itself. Originally an IBM product renowned for its endurance and toughness, Lenovo has faithfully carried on the tradition of producing fairly priced workhorse laptops that offer amazing bang for the buck, showcasing the excellence of Lenovo products and solutions.

Here is why ThinkPads find themselves a trusty standard issue in many businesses across many industries.


Long battery life

With battery life being a key consideration for business and consumer electronics, the ThinkPad models excel in this department, with some tests run on the new X1 Carbon Nano model, seeing its battery last up to 16 hours. This means less regular charging for professionals on the move every day. 

With a longer battery life, the ThinkPad enables the average time-strapped working professional to stay productive for longer, enjoying silky smooth performance.


Durability and reliability

Don’t let the lightness and seamless design of ThinkPads fool you. Having tested their laptops against 12 United States military standards and approximately 200 quality checks since 2007, the ThinkPad is one of the most durable and reliable laptops on the market today.

This provides consumers with a product that can be taken on the go with no worries, as the ThinkPad is built to withstand far more and remain operational, designed to stay running with rowdy schoolchildren, heavy-handed engineers and laboratory technicians. With resistance to dust, water and even fuel vapour, ThinkPad can and will endure the rigours of any working environment in any industry. 

Despite the popular saying, “You can’t put a price on peace of mind”, Lenovo can. Their different ThinkPad models at different price points offer robust builds that have undergone rigorous testing regimes.


Repair options and customer service

If you’ve somehow encountered failed or damaged parts, Lenovo makes repair a breeze with several options, be it DIY or assisted by professionals. With their transparent and easy-to-navigate FRU (Field Replacement Unit) system and site, you can search for specific parts that need replacement and have them shipped to your home, with helpful instruction manuals for their already easy-to-install spare parts and modular design that also lend themselves to great upgrading options.

Ordering through Lenovo’s partners in Singapore is also viable for those preferring a more convenient parts replacement option.

For more complex needs, it is possible to call for 24/7 customer support or visit one of their partnered service centres located around Singapore. Many IT vendors also offer bulk leasing, sales, and rental services for the powerful and ubiquitous ThinkPad.



With the popularity of outsourced IT support services in Singapore, jumping on the ThinkPad hype is but a call or email away. JK Tech, a Lenovo Platinum PC Partner in Singapore, boasts a large catalogue, offering their ubiquitous T, L and E series of ThinkPads and the newest 11th generation X1 Carbon models alongside other Lenovo computers for your IT outsourcing needs in Singapore. For any post-purchase needs, JK Tech is not just an authorised reseller but also one of Singapore's only few authorised service centres.

With its deceptively elegant looks hiding more than just a rugged chassis, ThinkPads carry enough hardware to power through various tasks, from crunching numbers to video editing, making it a sensible and attractive choice for any business looking to equip their staff with the best.
