The Lenovo Twist is a great Ultrabook convertible. Keyboard, ports, screen and Wi-Fi are all good quality and the twist screen is one of the easiest single-unit convertible designs to work with. There’s an offer at Amazon today for our US readers. $780 buys you a Core i5 version with 500GB HDD. Don’t forget that you can pop out that HDD and drop in a 7mm SSD without having to take the back off. I did it when I reviewed the Lenovo Twist recently. It flew! (Note, I’m testing a MyDigitalDIscount BP4 Slim SSD right now. It’s looking good)
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.
