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, the laptop offers capable performance, a sharp and bright IPS display, a fantastic keyboard and Lenovo's usual sturdy build quality.
Summary: At first glance, the ThinkPad Twist has a lot of things going for it: a luxurious soft-touch design, a keyboard with the best tactile feedback on the market, a colorful responsive touch screen and solid performance. However, we wouldn't recommend any ultraportable notebook that gets just four and a half hours of battery life and that goes double for a tablet, which is supposed to be used on the go.
Pros: Comfortable responsive keyboard, Fast boot time, Wide viewing angles, Solid audio,
Cons: Short battery life, Small and hard-to-locate power button, Weak webcam, No pen support, Slow wake from sleep
