Which ThinkPads have the water-spill resistance feature (drain holes)?

#1 Post by Pan-optical » Thu Mar 29, 2018 5:01 pm

I am trying to get an overview when it stated and if it ended somehow?

600X and T23 have no dedicated drain holes as far as I can see.

T43p has an unlabeled empty hole, it could be for drainage.

T60 & T410 have drain holes at the underside labeled as such.

T430s has unlabeled holes, reported as working drainage.

According to Lenovo the T440 still has it, still with the T480?

Additional info I found:

Some newer models might not have holes but are 'sealed' instead like the X240 (see how the coffee doesn't flow through)? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOFvk-FzTxQ

There is also a thread with conflicting info:

T480 might still have drain holes, but not T480s.
