Lenovo Thinkpad Twist Convertible Ultrabook Review

techbargains.com
17 April 2014
  • Summary: Overall, we were happy with the Lenovo Thinkpad Twist Convertible Ultrabook. It met its main needs and went a little bit beyond with the quality of the multi-touch screen. The keyboard layout was what you would hope for in a laptop. Comfortable and easier to clean we think is what they were aiming for there, and they did that well. The price, around $899, was pretty comparable to other convertible Ultrabooks out there.
  • Pros: Keyboard:, Design:, Multi-Touch Display:, Performance:, Battery Life:
  • Cons: Power Button:, Sound:, The Finish:

A classic take on convertibles in Lenovo's ThinkPad Twist

CNET
6 March 2013
  • Summary: Slightly less conservative-feeling than the average ThinkPad, the well-made ThinkPad Twist offers one of the better tablet modes from the first wave of Windows 8 convertibles.
  • Cons: The screen accelerometer can have a mind of its own, flipping into portrait view randomly. Battery life is merely OK, and the screen resolution is low for a modern laptop/tablet convertible.

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.

Expert Review

14 December 2012
  • 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 of your list, even if its AC adapter should be in your briefcase.
  • 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
