8 February 2013

  • Pros: Keyboard:, Design:, Multi-Touch Display:, Performance:, Battery Life:
  • Cons: Power Button:, Sound:, The Finish:

  • Excerpt: We recently reviewed the Lenovo Yoga 13, but it's not the only laptop from Lenovo with a touchscreen. Today we will take a closer look at the ThinkPad Twist, a 12.5-inch notebook with - you guessed it - a screen that you can twist around.

  • Excerpt: Lenovo’s family of convertible devices, with names like Yoga and Twist, remind us of that gymnast/cheerleader/yoga instructor/circus performer we dated years back. Unlike that experience, where the novelty quickly wore off, the Lenovo ThinkPad Twist ($849+) proves useful for both work AND play.

Lenovo ThinkPad Twist

MobileTechReview.com
30 December 2012
  • Conclusion: The Lenovo ThinkPad Twist has relatively little competition in the convertible Windows 8 touchscreen camp. In fact, Lenovo's own IdeaPad Yoga 13 may be its biggest competitor. Even in a more populated field, we can see why the Twist has sold so well since it came out: the price is very reasonable,...
  • Pros: Relatively affordable, excellent keyboard, IPS display.
  • Cons: Battery life so-so with HDD option (SSD is better), a well-configured Twist borders on ThinkPad X230t pricing.

Lenovo ThinkPad Twist (3347-4HU)

PC Magazine
15 December 2012
  • Conclusion: The Lenovo ThinkPad Twist (3347-4HU) ultrabook convertible is really a clamshell laptop convertible tablet like the ones that Lenovo has been making for the past half-dozen years. It's the natural evolution of the Tablet PC concept of the mid-2000s, in 2012 ultrabook form.
  • Pros: Convertible tablet form factor. More storage than SSD-only convertibles. Both TrackPoint and trackpad. Good keyboard. Optional WWAN.
  • Cons: Bulky. Only five touch points. Mini HDMI instead of full-size HDMI port.

  • Conclusion: No, the ThinkPad Twist isn't perfect, but it's more than the sum of its parts—especially if the parts you're talking about are the merely adequate display and lackluster battery. If you're looking for a Windows 8 convertible with strong business chops, the Lenovo ThinkPad Twist should be at the top...
  • Pros: Four different form factors, Excellent keyboard and controls, Utility-packed business software, Above-average port selection, Great price
  • Cons: Poor battery life, Pedestrian display and audio, No pen support

Lenovo ThinkPad Twist review

IT PRO
14 January 2013
  • Summary: Lenovo has joined the Windows 8 party with the Twist, a ThinkPad that uses the traditional hinged method to switch between its laptop and tablet modes, and it's a good piece of design - but, while the usual ThinkPad visuals are in place, build quality isn't quite up to scratch.
