Lenovo ThinkPad Twist review

7 January 2014
  • Summary: In ten years, it seems like everything's changed — but maybe things aren't so different after all. In 2002, Acer revealed a PC that was also a tablet, the TravelMate 100 . The convertible device used a swiveling central hinge, allowing the screen to rotate 180 degrees and fold down on top of the keyboard so you could hold it in two hands like a tablet.
  • Pros: Inexpensive for an ultrabook, Good keyboard, Swiveling screen is handy
  • Cons: Busy, sometimes ugly design, Poor trackpad, Terrible speakers

Quick review - Lenovo ThinkPad Twist

12 July 2013
  • Conclusion: As an ultrabook the Twist will provide the business-ready performance expected from it, with the added benefit of its twistable screen. Just remember that at 1.58 kg, this unit is bulkier and heavier than regular tablets. With Windows 8 Pro installed the Twist retails for R16 000. If you don’t want the extra bulk, try the new ThinkPad Helix (review) but for R25 000.

The Lenovo ThinkPad Twist has a good design and useful features, but it needs work

Good Gear Guide.au
17 May 2013
  • Summary: The Lenovo Twist has a conventional design that can allow it to be used easily as a notebook or as a tablet. It has a decent configuration and a useful set of built-in features, but it's not without its problems. Our review unit had poorly performing sensors that couldn't get the screen orientation right, along with some other niggling issues.
  • Pros: Easy conversion from notebook to laptop, Useful built-in connectivity features, Plentiful and relatively fast storage
  • Cons: Screen orientation sensor didn't work well for us, Touchpad could be better, Overly glossy design

A classic take on convertibles in Lenovo's ThinkPad Twist

1 December 2012
  • 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.
  • Pros: The ThinkPad Twist has great Lenovo construction, a responsive touch screen, and a center hinge for flipping into tablet mode, all for a very reasonable price.
  • 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 kent matige uitvoering

15 March 2013
  • Conclusion: Het is misschien mijn eigen schuld, ik verwachtte op voorhand wellicht teveel van deze Lenovo. Maar dat de teleurstelling zo’n impact zou hebben had ik niet verwacht. Met argwaan trek ik momenteel apparaten uit hun verpakking. Bijna met tegenzin. Ik kan er niks anders van maken. Dankzij de Lenovo ThinkPad Twist, ben ik nu gadgetmoe.
