IT TWISTS. IT BENDS. IT FOLDS. IT SPINS.
INTRODUCING THE THINKPAD® TWIST CONVERTIBLE ULTRABOOK™ FROM LENOVO®.

Twist transforms into a laptop when you need to type, a tablet when you’re on the go, and a stand when you want to share presentations. When you’re ready to browse, bend it backward into a tent for a close-up view.

Lenovo® ThinkPad® Twist 230u Ultrabook™

FOUR AWESOME MODES. ONE INCREDIBLE MACHINE.

    My personal hands on experience I purchased the Lenovo on the second day it was out. I am not normally an adventurer, but I urgently needed a new computer, and had waited until Windows 8 came out so that I could have long use. I was moving from an older Windows Vista, so those with Windows 7 won’t be as impressed – although it is hard to separate the experience of Windows 8 from the Lenovo, since they are designed to interact.Touch ScreenThe touch screen is amazingly responsive, it responds as easily as my iPad to my touch. On the other hand, the accelerometer is a bit finicky, and getting the picture to turn is not as responsive. Still, since 99% of my usage is in display or laptop mode, it hasn’t been a significant issue. I hope that it is improved in later models.Twist and TurnI LOVE this configuration. I primarily use the display and laptop mode. Even with my iPad, I hated TeePee (an inverted V), and I preferred to be able to set my display up to…

    Exactly what I wanted in a mobile laptop/tablet combo, but ended up returning I purchased two of these units for my wife and me from Staples a few days ago. We’ve both run them through enough of our routine work tasks that I can say I am officially in love. My rating is really a 4.5, but I choose to round up instead of down because, for me, the benefits outweigh the shortcomings.My wife and I are both Realtors with iPhones and we work full time off our two laptops from a home office. We are very mobile, meeting clients mostly in the field, at coffee shops, or at their homes, but do spend a lot of time at a desk, working in “desktop” mode. She’s been bugging me for over a year to get an iPad. I’ve resisted because I don’t view the iPad as a solution to any of our productivity issues, and I didn’t want each of us to have a third device to deal with. Instead, I have been patiently waiting for the right Ultrabook, and the Thinkpad Twist is it.Is it big enough to work on full time?When we downsized from full PCs to fulltime 15.6 Laptops…
