YOKOHAMA, JAPAN--The Lenovo Yamato Lab designs and tests the Chinese PC manufacturer's ThinkPad line of products.
Previously part of IBM, Yamato Lab became part of Lenovo when it took over Big Blue's PC division in 2005.
In 2010, the laboratory moved from Yamato to its current location in Yokohama's urban business district Minato Mirai 21 but its name remained unchanged.
In a tour of its test facilities, Lenovo showed ZDNet Asia how it puts its laptops through rigorous tests before bringing the devices to market.
