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.

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
