Summary: I bought my Lenovo Thinkpad Twist in November 2013. At the time I was looking for a lightweight "tablet" that had a full version of Windows. At the time, my choices were limited -- the Dell XPS 12, the Microsoft Surface Pro, The Lenovo Yoga, and the Lenovo ThinkPad Twist.
Summary: I really like the twist format but there were a couple of issues when I received it. It was shipped from Adorama camera. When I received the computer, it had bad ram and had to go back to the manufacturer to have the motherboard replaced as the ram is embedded in the motherboard.
Summary: The Good: less than $500, build quality, performance, Twist, WiFi, USB3, 4-1 media card reader, slim and good looking, Win8 Pro, size for travel. The could be better: battery life, display is a bit too reflective, weight, no HDD LED, no battery or RAM access for upgrade or maintenance.
