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.
