Is it for people with bad eyesight? For more ‘impressive’ gaming FPS? Or is it just stupid and cheap?
I’m looking at a newly announced 15.6” Haswell-based Ultrabook, with a 1366×768 screen and shaking my head.
Business and pleasure mixed into a fun and inspirational package. The touch-swivel Windows 8 Lenovois a solid performer with an excellent working fascia for many scenarios. It’s not a consumer tablet though and there are one or two characteristics to be aware of but at a starting price of $899 for a Core i5 variant (959 Euro, 899 Euro street price) we think it offers solid value for money.

It’s been a busy, but enjoyable weekend with the Lenovo. It fits right into the way I use laptops, the way I like to interact with laptops and the quality I like to see. Is it what YOU want from an laptop though. This Ultrabook Convertible has a great working fascia, extensive set of ports and one of the more popular convertible designs – the rotating screen that not only turns the Twist into a lappable tablet (it’s not a handheld) it also offers some other use cases.
I’ve put together a fairly detailed video overview for you and I think, if you’re considering the Twist, you’ll be able to work out if it’s really one for you. Check it out below.
Since 2006 I’ve owned three swivel-screen laptops and one of them, the Gigabyte Touchnote, became completely ingrained in my mobile computing life. The Lenovo Twist is a similar size and weight but it offers quite a bit more. We’re talking about a useful and desktop-capable Core i5 CPU, 4GB of RAM, a 500GB hybrid HDD and 5-point capacitive touch. This little Ultrabook Convertible is running Windows 8 and also includes a great set of ports. To top it off there’s an IPS display. Out of the box it’s an extremely exciting form factor and it looks and feels both stylish and strong. My first thoughts were ‘I need this Ultrabook.’ After 4 hours of testing I’m still very positive but there are a couple of things that are annoying me.
ASUS doesn’t appear to have revealed much online about thethis evening as their events take place in London and New York but there’s enough so far to confirm it’s coming and to fill out some of the specs. A 13.3” 1080P IPS display, CPU options up to Core i7 and there’s a 128GB SSD in the tablet. Up to 500GB hard drive sits in the keyboard dock. More specs below…
Unconfirmed but appearing in the flesh on photos in China is the Lenovo, an 11.6” Core-based Tablet with keyboard docking station in much the same style as the Lenovo Ideapad Lynx, a more consumer-focused dockable tablet built around the Intel Atom Clover Trail platform. Details are think on the ground but we’ve pulled together as much as we can for you.
There’s some confusion about the mechanism here but after looking and reading through a number of reports, we’re going to say it has a single-sided screen that can dock with the screen facing forward or backwards.
