Lenovo ThinkPad Twist review: A classic convertible with a few new tricks


Long before the iPad, Galaxy Note, or Nook HD, a tablet was usually a Windows device that spent most of its time set up as a traditional clamshell laptop, but could also twist or swivel its display around to form a touch screen slate. Lenovo and HP...

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.

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.

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.

Lenovo ThinkPad Twist


With multitasking abilities and a swiveling screen to switch from laptop to tablet mode, the Lenovo ThinkPad Twist is an ideal computer for business use.

The Twist has one of the fastest processors available and a large amount of RAM, so you can multitask, download and stream quickly. It also features an Ethernet port for use when Wi-Fi is unavailable

The resolution is only 1366 x 768, and the battery life is only about six hours, which is less than most other tablet PCs

A quick processor and a lot of storage make this computer fast, but the resolution and battery leave something to be desired.

Quick review - Lenovo ThinkPad Twist


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...

Lenovo ThinkPad Twist reviewed: a ThinkPad with a difference


Convertible tablets are nothing new in the business sector, but convertible Ultrabooks certainly are: the ThinkPad Twist is the first we've come across.

Apart from the excellent display, then, it provides little in the way of excitement. The pricier model, which adds 3G and a speedier SSD, makes the Twist more viable for businesses, but it’s still no award-winner.

"couldn't be worse if they tried"


I'm not sure where to even start. I can start off by saying I believe I have a lemon, but what difference does it make? I have supposedly owned this laptop for just over a year now, and have probably had it less than a total of three months. Probably...

not much...

mainly everything, where do I start.

"Required "Tablet Digitizer Pen" not available."


Very poor in tablet mode -- required Tablet Digitizer Pen not provided with machine or evidently even available. Lenovo's response to problem very poor. Evidently no one has read their own owner's manual.

Weight & balance good

Owner's manual requires using "Tablet Digitizer Pen" on the screen; however, no such pen provided and Lenovo can not seen to sell me one.

"Great Laptop"


Amazing laptop. I'm a student and mostly use it for school work, but I also use it for gaming, as well as running virtual machines. Sometimes the screen seems to not optimize it's full space potential, but not often. Definitely would buy again.

Solid swivel

Some screen space could've been added on the bottom
