Two new models of ThinkPad notebook computers, unveiled by IBM Corp., come with a chip that can detect when the laptop is accelerating, such as when it has been accidentally nudged off a table and is plunging to the floor.

If the hard drive happens to be reading or writing data at the time, the chip tells the drive to temporarily stop. Hard drives are at their most vulnerable when reading and writing data, so IBM believes the crash-protection chip will help guard against such losses of important information.

The crash chips are found in IBM's new ThinkPad R50 and T41 models. (AP)
