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


TheThinkPad Twisthas 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.
