  • 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

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

Quick review - Lenovo ThinkPad Twist

  • 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.

  • Cons: Screen orientation sensor didn't work well for us, Touchpad could be better, Overly glossy design

  • 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.
