Ideapad Y530: Active Protection System for hard drive included?

2009-01-10, 0:48 AM

My wife received her new Ideapad Y530 40512UU last week.  So far she likes it very well but I have been wondering if it has the Active Protection System included on it.  I have the Thinkpad T400 and like the APS feature.  The specs on the Ideapad seem to indicate that it is included on many models but I can't find anything in the config that would lead me to believe that it is active on her system.  Is there any way that I can check it without the Thinkvantage Active Protection System properties utility that is included on the Thinkpads?

APS consits of two things - a hardware chip and driver-level software.

Only U series Ideapads have APS - U110 and U330. U130 is not confirmed for now but I believe it will be.
