"Why the battery is so bad? I got my Twist, charged the battery, turned it on, and after 3 hours and 50 minutes I had to charge the battery again. * Important details: I only browsed the net for 30 minutes, had only one window open+updated Lenovo drivers and Windows+ scanned the PC w/ Win. Defender. That is what I did. And the battery did not last 4 hours.If you want to surf the net,watch videos or listen to music, or keep 2 windows open in your browser most of the time,your PC battery will last about 3 hours or less than that. I cannot understand why Lenovo did that. I wanted to love this machine. I really wanted! *Someone here knows if Lenovo will do something about that? If the new machines will have a better battery? Thanks!"
"I actually like this unit more than I thought I would. The 1366 x 768 resolution works very well on a screen this size. The keyboard is different than the traditional IBM / Lenovo Thinkpad keyboard, but it still has a nice quality feel. The hinge / screen turning mechanism is surprisingly solid. My only complaints are pretty much cosmetic. Why oh why would the designers make a ThinkPad and put a plastic chrome strip around the screen edges? Makes it look cheap and cheesy. (and NOT like a Thinkpad) Also, why is the area below the screen where the Lenovo label and volume control are located gloss black? This should be flat like the outside of the unit. Fix these two minor things and you've got a hot looking little number. It's still a great value for the price and I would purchase again."
Cons: people keep asking to borrow it, might be too awesome
"This review is based on the need for a portable laptop. First, this laptop is lightweight and the perfect size. Windows 8 by itself isn't that great, but with a touchscreen, it is very easy to navigate through and gives you an awesome feeling as you showoff to your friends. The specialized Fn keys at the top of the keyboard are useful. The twist screen is cool and gives more view-ability options. Can surf the internet and watch videos without slowdown. The SSD makes everything load within seconds. Gets the best reception from anything I own. Can't find much to complain about, except that I keep getting distracted from work now. Overall, this is a great lightweight laptop that I love to take everywhere and you should consider getting it."
"This Thinkpad laptop-tablet hybrid works exactly as I expected, during the day as a workstation hooked up to an external monitor and keyboard, and in the evenings as a tablet for browsing, gaming, and Netflix. Build quality is great. I was concerned about the hinge being flimsy, but this is certainly not the case. The single twisting hinge is metal on metal rock solid.
Windows 8 is really meant for hybrids like this, very fast boot and application response times in Desktop mode (thanks to both W8 improvements, and Lenovo's ExpressCache SSD acceleration), and convenient 'Metro' interface for tablet mode.
I would strongly recommend getting the 8GB RAM version.
The only downside is the battery life, only around 2.5-3 hours."
Pros: Input/Output compatibility, Processor, Memory, Bluetooth, Video card, Keyboard/peripherals, Screen size, Storage, Display performance, not a tablet compromise
"I love this machine. The keyboard is nice, the touch screen is good, and the colours on the screen are vibrant and eye-popping. The 8gb of ram and core i7 provide an excellent, speedy, well priced convertible ultrabook."
Cons: Battery, battery life, runs a bit hot when in your lap
"A very nice laptop, but not an Ultrabook, twist screen is solid and feels quite stable. Touch screen is responsive and easy to use in laptop or tablet form. Core I7 with 8 gigs ram gives it plenty of power for most any task you would use this system for. Only issue is the terrible battery life, maybe 3 hours at 40% brightness of screen. This is why I call it a laptop not an ultrabook as their is no way you could do a days work without recharging at least once and likely twice."
Pros: Weight, Warranty, Processor, Security Features, Included software, Durability, Memory, Video card, Screen size, Build Quality, Storage, Display resolution, awesome
Cons: Battery, not enough usb outputs!
"This laptop is pretty intense, the only thing that bothered me is the keyboard (majority because of the arrow keys being to small). Really powerful with the i7 3rd gen, 8gs of ram is close to overkill and the touch screen is a awesome feature. The battery is pretty sort, around 3ish hours and you will need to plug it in. It fully charges around an 1 and a 1/2 on sleep mode. over all this a amazing student laptop that can handle games. But nothing to intense."
"Pros: Flexibility of being a tablet and a laptop convenience of using touch screen and keyboard the same time. Quality screen display No compromise on I/O ports, USB3.0, HDMI, ethernet and card reader Fast boot. About 25 sec on Core i7 Cons: shorter battery life. Average 3.5 hrs Quite hot on full CPU speed Software bugs on lenovo power settings (The long battery life and full battery charge selection may not work as intended.) software bug on touch pad and Left/right key combination User can't upgrade memory Display resolution is not above the average"
