The basic idea is a good one, but many little annoyances -- both in the software and the hardware -- make the Twist more an unpolished gem than a...

  • Summary: It’s hardly surprising to find a ThinkPad device under the incoming torrent of Windows 8 devices, but the “twist” here is that the ThinkPad Twist does actually dare (and mostly succeeding) in embracing things a little differently.
  • Pros: Unique twist-screen design, Excellent keyboard, Loud speakers, Solid performances
  • Cons: Somewhat reflective screen, Battery life could be better

  • 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.

  • 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

6 December 2012
  • Excerpt: 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

  • Summary: Tablets in recent memory have been keyboard-less slate devices, but is that an ideal form factor for touchscreen computing? Maybe we need do a 180 degree twist and reevaluate convertible tablet/laptops. Yes, something like the ThinkPad Twist.
