The Lenovo ThinkPad Twist is a solid notebook that offers the performance and utility needed from a business notebook. The ability to easily switch between different modes in conjunction with the display’s wide viewing angles makes the ThinkPad perfect for everything from casual web browsing to presenting information in a meeting. The device is also easy to transport thanks to its light and durable design.

However, the ThinkPad’s performance levels are less than stellar, especially given its $900 price tag. Slightly more expensive models such as the Dell XPS 12 and Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 easily outperform this notebook and only cost a few hundred more.

If you are looking for a notebook that offers acceptable performance with a whole lot of utility for a reasonable price then the Lenovo ThinkPad Twist is for you. But if you are willing to spend a bit more, there are better options available.


  • Great chassis design 
  • Display with wide viewing angles 
  • Comfortable keyboard 


  • Weak battery life 
  • Mediocre performance
