Lenovo Twist Laptop Review

I bought my last laptop Acer Aspire Timeline about three years ago and so far it has worked without any problems. I kept it in crisp condition and was able to sell it for $200. This time, to try something different I decided on buying a Lenovo ThinkPad Laptop/Tablet. This is my first time buying a Lenovo product.


– 3rd generation Intel Core i7-3537u processor 2.00 GHz 4MB cache

– 500 GB Hard drive

– 8 Gig RAM

– It’s an Ultrabook combining laptop/tablet together that can bends, twists, folds, and spins.

– Dolby® Home Theater® Stereo speakers

– Magnesium Alloy Construction – only 20 mm thick and weighs 3.45 lbs

– A hybrid hard drive and solid state drive. Active Protection System prevents hard drive from system failure.

– Wakes up from sleep mode in two seconds

– Spill resistant keyboard


– Feels a bit heavier than other Ultrabook. I think this is due to its heavier keyboard. A feature to detach screen from the keyboard would have been nicer.

– Although Lenovo says battery has 6 hours life, I cannot get it to work more than 4 hours.

– I don’t understand or see any value in The TrackPoint center button. I find it meaningless, but it could be due to the fact that I never dealt with such a button in my life.

– I am not impressed with its Dolby® Home Theater® Stereo speakers. My cheap $250 Acer Netbook has a better sound system.

My Take

I like its rugged, rubberised durable construction. Its overall design and looks feel and look elegant and extraordinary. If you don’t mind the few cons I mentioned above, I think the Lenovo ThinkPad Twist Convertible is worth its value (around $1000 to $1100 + taxes in Canada).
