Four different form factors, Excellent keyboard and controls, Utility-packed business software, Above-average port selection, Great price
Convertible tablet form factor, More storage than SSD-only convertibles, Both TrackPoint and trackpad, Good keyboard, Optional WWAN.
The ThinkPad Twist has great Lenovo construction, a responsive touch screen, and a center hinge for flipping into tablet mode, all for a very reasonable price.
Poor battery life, Pedestrian display and audio, No pen support
Bulky, Only five touch points, Mini HDMI instead of full-size HDMI port.
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.
