As much as I hate the iPad, those tests are not remotely equivelent. Since no numbers are given/shown, the stress-testing rig used on the Thinkpad could be set to anything. The iPad "test" is a pretty tough one (falling ~3.5 ft. onto hard concrete). I'm willing to bet that the thinkpad front face is more survivable than the iPad, but let's stick an iPad in the same rig as the Thinkpad before we come to any conclusions.
