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 review

 

Lenovo combines tablet and laptop for its first hybrid ThinkPad - does the Twist offer the best of both worlds for businesses?

Lenovo has joined the Windows 8 party with the Twist, a ThinkPad that uses the traditional hinged method to switch between its laptop and tablet modes, and it's a good piece of design - but, while the usual ThinkPad visuals are in place, build quality...

Lenovo ThinkPad Twist review: an old form factor gets new life with Windows 8

 

Lenovo updates a tried-and-true form factor with Windows 8, a bright IPS display and an excellent keyboard. However, longer battery life would have made this a better choice for road warriors.

Excellent keyboardGood port selectionWide viewing anglesUseful tools for businesses

Short battery lifePerformance trails without an SSDSome trackpad issues

Lately, we feel like all of our reviews of Windows 8 convertibles end the same way. The ThinkPad Twist has plenty going for it: a bright IPS display, a good port selection, an affordable price and an unrivaled typing experience. Like ThinkPads past, it...

A classic take on convertibles in Lenovo's ThinkPad Twist

 

Skipping the newer flipping, folding, or sliding designs, the Twist goes back to a traditional center-hinge design.

The ; 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 (3347-4HU) Review

 

The Lenovo ThinkPad Twist is the best of both worlds. Able to work as a tablet and notebook, this business ultrabook offers on par performance with high quality design.

Great chassis design ; Display with wide viewing angles ; Comfortable keyboard

Weak battery life ; Mediocre performance ; The Lenovo ThinkPad Twist is a solid business class notebook that offers a great deal of versatility for its $900 price tag.

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.

Consumer review (cnet.com)

"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.
