If you are only looking at Lenovo laptops, perhaps, But the Panasonic toughbooks are well known for their exterior shell toughness as they have Titanium shells which protect the laptop. The local ambulance services where I live use the toughbook exclusively and they seem to hold up very well in that environment.
Here is a video of their testing.

When it comes to Lenovo products, they do make a "tough" series, but they are typically not marketed to that way.  The series that are their more durable ones are their T, X, and R series.
