The Lenovo Twist is a great Ultrabook convertible. Keyboard, ports, screen and Wi-Fi are all good quality and the twist screen is one of the easiest single-unit convertible designs to work with. There’s an offer at Amazon today for our US readers. $780 buys you a Core i5 version with 500GB HDD. Don’t forget that you can pop out that HDD and drop in a 7mm SSD without having to take the back off. I did it when I reviewed the Lenovo Twist recently. It flew! (Note, I’m testing a MyDigitalDIscount BP4 Slim SSD right now. It’s looking good)

  • For all the functions in the world this machine is still one of the ugliest ones I have ever seen. It looks like my first laptop from 1999.
    The yoga is prettier at least
