The battery life has plenty of room for improvement, but the versatile design of the ThinkPad Twist makes it an available choice for business travellers who can’t decide between a laptop and a tablet.

The Lenovo Twist has a conventional design that can allow it to be used easily as a notebook or as a tablet. It has a decent configuration and a useful set of built-in features, but it's not without its problems. Our review unit had poorly performing sensors that couldn't get the screen orientation right, along with some other niggling issues.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
